Victor Lipman is an executive coach and author of The Type B Manager: Leading Successfully in a Type A World (Prentice Hall Press, August 2015). Publishers Weekly has called it "an excellent resource for leaders who don't fit the mold." Victor retired from the corporate world in 2012 after 25 years with one of America's largest life insurance companies. He spent most of that time as a front-line manager and Communications and Marketing executive. Before that, he was a journalist for a decade, mostly as an editor and writer with Honolulu Magazine. Long interested as a practitioner in the subject of management, both good and bad, effective and ineffective, what works and what doesn't, Victor is the founder and principal of Howling Wolf Management Training. He has a B.A. from Harvard College, where he majored in psychology (called Social Relations there at the time), and he holds an MBA from Western New England University. His work has appeared in Harvard Business Review, and he contributes regularly to Forbes.com in his blog, "Management Matters."
