If you have read my other reviews you will know I have read 100's of self help books over the years. I am a business consultant, peak performance expert, entrepreneur and University lecturer amongst other things. As such I read books in order to improve my knowledge and the advice I can give others. I ordered this book via the Vine programme in the hope I may end up learning something new about how the mind can create happiness without all the positive thinking garbage that some book push.
Culture shock is a book that is both a wonderful inspiring read and is packed full of ideas that can be applied in many different business types and situations. It examines the concepts behind building a democratised social business. I have read a plethora of books on the way the Japanese companies do it and studied at great length companies like Kao soap, which was regarded in the 1990's as the most democratised company in the World. This book encapsulates many of the great ideas that have been used and found to be successful in the real world of business. The author guides the reader through a process of change, that if implemented in part or in full, will make a great difference to most businesses.
This is a well written practical guide for anyone wanting to make major changes in their company and organisation. It is full of practical advice and I cannot recommend this book enough.
