His insights are brought to life through vivid examples involving organizations ranging from HP and Google to Telefonica and the U.S. Marines. Readers will develop a new appreciation for this most crucial aspect of contemporary leadership as well as a host of ideas and practical tools they can begin using immediately to succeed in a changing world.
