LGH reviewer Gioia Zack says, “This book explains that you can have the best, most qualified people and you can have the best, revolutionary ideas; however, if you do not have the environment or culture that allows the two to come together, pursue a clear, common goal, and work together in a smarter way, nothing will flourish.  His culture-building process…. is for any person or group that may feel true potential is not being met and wants to open themselves to possibilities.”
