Many have said as they left their high-level job, I wish I knew what I know now when I sat down at my desk on my first day on the job. Frank McDonough intends that Spring Training for the Major Leagues of Government will give new appointees to high-level jobs the insights needed to be successful from their first day on the job.
"The public at large has no real insight into what goes on inside government agencies. Frank McDonough has been on both sides of the table; he has been there and done that. Now he offers his advice to Brian in Spring Training for the Major Leagues of Government."
—Tom Rolston, Former IBM executive and author of two books, Fifty Years before Crack, and Faith or Duty?
“Frank McDonough is a well-traveled veteran from the halls of the Washington establishment. This book reflects his unique perspective and historical background that can benefit everyone who seeks a successful career in the service of their country.”
—John Sindelar, Member of the Federal Senior Executive Service, and Principal, Sindelar Group, LLC, a Public Sector Consulting Service.
“Frank led a large, complex organization where he saw the government from a government-wide perspective. His deep experience domestically and internationally is reflected with insights, anecdotes, and advice in the 44 chapters in Spring Training for the Major Leagues of Government.”
—Martha Dorris, member of the Senior Executive Service, and awardee of Presidential Rank.
“Frank not only understands how government agencies work, but he knows how to transfer that information in an understandable, and often entertaining, manner. Brian could not find a better mentor.”
— Philip McGuigan, a Retired Partner of McGuire Woods LLP, was the principal author of Information Technology Outsourcing, A Handbook for Government, Second Edition published by the International City/County Management Association.
