DERBY, CT (October 17, 2007) – Griffin Hospital and its President Patrick Charmel are spotlighted in the just released business book, Fire Them Up!: 7 Simple Secrets to: Inspire Your Colleagues, Customers, and Clients by Emmy award winning journalist, Carmine Gallo.

The book reveals seven simple secrets distilled from the wisdom of leaders, entrepreneurs, and visionaries from different backgrounds, generations and industries. Together, they possess all the tools for an individual to transform themselves into an extraordinary, electrifying, and enthusiastic leader who communicates with power, passion, confidence and charisma!

Griffin Hospital is in good company as among the twenty-five inspiring businesses featured are Ritz-Carlton and its President, Simon Cooper, Apple CEO Steve Jobs, Cold Stone Creamery and its founder, Richard Tait, and Google Vice President, Marissa Mayer.

“Inspiring leaders communicate visions that are irrepressible, irresistible, and wildly contagious. By doing so, they leave people energized, enthusiastic and motivated to take up any challenge and to live richer, more meaningful lives”, said Gallo.

This is the second business book in the past year to feature Griffin Hospital. “The Disney Way” by authors Bill Capodagli and Lynn Jackson was published late last year. The authors cited the featured companies as role models who have redefined their businesses by embracing the “Disney” management philosophy of “dream, believe, dare, do”, a powerful foundation that guides organizations to new found levels of performance and success.
