Readers Comments:

"An amazing book for those who examine management practices or organizational leadership. These are useful and practical concepts for many firms. The use of core values as drivers of the firm as captured here are key to many firms' successes. As a former director in a large non profit, I found these concepts applicable to the non profit sector also. I recommend this reading and have recommended to my peers in my PhD business program... Great read by Ms. Devero!" — Christopher Noe
