5.0 out of 5 stars MORE THAN A HISTORY LESSON, IT'S INSTRUCTIONAL!, 30 Dec 2013
John Childress has written a factual account of the ascendency of corporate culture as powerful consideration for Chief Executives who have a relentless focus on their organization's performance and how those achievements are accomplished. I appreciate the author's practical approaches to developing and shaping an organization's culture and his debunking of the many (and mostly limiting) myths that only serve to cloud the issue. The use of real life and concise examples that support John's discoveries helped me to better understand the many points that he makes. I also appreciate how the author allows me to draw my own conclusions having looked at both the pros and cons of the many points he covers.
I find this guidebook to be of such real value that I have already begun to distribute it to many of my preferred customers - especially those who are hell bent on improving the performance of their organizations. Thank you!

5.0 out of 5 stars An actionable guide for executive leaders, 10 Dec 2013
By 
M.T. (Boston, MA) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Leverage: The CEO's Guide to Corporate Culture (Paperback)
The author has delivered in this book a deep understanding of what is corporate culture, it's significant influence on business performance, how to evaluate an existing organization's culture, and most importantly, how to change it to support sustainable high performance. Unlike many of the books that have been written on corporate culture over the past few decades based anecdotal or academic treatment, Leverage: The CEO's Guide to Corporate Culture is a well written, well integrated, actionable guide for executive leaders. I highly recommend this book be read by an entire executive leadership team as a first step to improving the culture of an organization which will lead to more engaged employees, more satisfied customers, and improved business performance.
