This is simply hands-down the best, most practical book you can read on how to make your company and your employees winners.
And, by the way, that is not puffery. This book is just flat-out awesome. If I could waive a magic wand, I would have every ESOP company make this its playbook.
Not only have I had the pleasure of taking the Great Game of Business courses, I continue to use many of the key principles from this leadership system every day in my role as CEO. Beginning with the right leadership; insuring that there is respect for every individual; focusing on optimizing key decisions and instilling a daily desire to win are all key components I have implemented into my operating rhythm. This book will definitely help everyone keep practicing and implementing The Game.
