Management Expert And Organizational Psychologist Examines SOTU, Says U.S. Should Fire Its CEO Feb. 4: Dr. Tim Irwin Breaks Down Good/Bad/Ugly Leadership Traits in New Book, "Impact: Great Leadership Changes Everything"

ATLANTA, Jan. 31, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- "It's clear that Obama's core has been breached and he's losing the trust of his shareholders." – Tim Irwin, Ph.D.

If the United States were a publicly traded company with President Obama at the helm, Tuesday's State of the Union address would have led to the firing of its CEO by a nation of unimpressed and disappointed shareholders says organizational psychologist and leadership expert Tim Irwin, Ph.D. Dr. Irwin has helped many CEOs face critical junctures in their leadership, and wholeheartedly believes that were Obama facing a shareholder vote, he would be out of a job.

"We wanted to hear that our CEO has a way to get his diverse constituencies to work together to accomplish the grand vision," said Dr. Irwin. "Members of congress will hardly speak to each other, much less collaborate. What kind of team has he built? Is he even engaged in leading them?"

In his new book, Impact: Great Leadership Changes Everything (February, BenBella Books), Irwin addresses key areas and scenarios that make leaders prone to failure, offering insight into how to avoid and combat these dangerous vulnerabilities. Most fundamentally, Irwin focuses on the development of the core of the leader.

"Management is positional; leadership is personal," writes Irwin. "It's clear that Obama's core has been compromised and he's losing the trust of his shareholders."

Dr. Irwin will be signing copies of Impact: Great Leadership Changes Everything in Atlanta on Tues., Feb. 4, 2014 at the Buckhead-area Barnes & Noble from 6-8 p.m.
