PHILADELPHIA, PA – On Tuesday, March 22, from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m., Sam Calagione, Founder and President of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, will be signing copies of his new book, Off-centered Leadership: The Dogfish Head Guide to Motivation, Collaboration & Smart Growth, at Fergie’s Pub (1214 Sansom Street).
The eight-chapter book explores the power of collaboration in the business world and what happens when companies and co-workers stop competing and start collaborating. Off-centered Leadership was released on February 22 with Wiley Publishing and the book is available nationwide at Barnes & Noble, Amazon.com and other fine retailers.
Off-centered Leadership includes practical information and tips for entrepreneurs and leaders in all industries to apply to their own professional journeys, giving insight into the methods and approaches Dogfish has used to develop a rich and diverse brand and leadership team. Throughout the book, Calagione candidly reveals the rewards and challenges of growing Dogfish Head in the last two decades as it evolved from being the smallest craft brewery in America to becoming one of the most recognizable names in the beer industry.
Like any growing business leader, Calagione realizes he has much to learn in his journey. He shares insights from his fellow co-workers in leadership roles and many revelatory interviews on leadership and collaboration with a range of accomplished, thought-provoking visionaries including: Terry Kelly, CEO of W.L. Gore & Associates; Nick Brayton, President and CEO of Woolrich; and even the artist Will Oldham.
