Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

In this fictional story of corporate intrigue, the author of the best-selling book, The Five Temptations of a CEO, identifies four simple principles business leaders can use to guide the complex proce ss of building a healthy organizational culture.

Companies succeed for just two reasons: they are smart, and they are healthy. Unfortunately, most executives spend far more time on making their organizations smart than they do on making them healthy. This makes little sense when one considers the most amazing characteristic of healthy organizations: they eventually find ways to become smarter than their competitors. In this uniquely readable book, practical advice for business leaders is woven into a captivating tale of two rival business leaders who discover both the perils of an unhealthy culture and the secrets of healthy ones. A special section at the end of the story guides readers in implementing the model in their own companies.
