"For those of us constantly striving to operate smarter, faster, and better, Karlin Sloan reminds us sagely, through wonderful stories, that we may well achieve our highest levels of performance, potential, and fulfillment by asking questions, slowing down, and being of service. Great advice for a weary world and particularly for leaders seeking sustained peak performance for themselves and the organizations they lead."
