"If you only have time to read one book this year on leadership and organizational/cultural change, this should be the one. It should be required reading for CEOs and anyone else who wants to make sense out of all the management literature fighting for shelf-space today. The L4 strategy that Dr. Truskie articulates deserves a very careful read--not a mere feel-good book."

"This is a truly important contribution that vividly defines how leaders build lasting success into their organizations. The book offers a new perspective and meaning to the term 'leadership' that will definitely challenge (and change!) the way many leaders view their roles as champions of their organization's enduring success. I highly recommend this to leaders as well as to those who develop and support them."

Hi Stan,

I just attended your CPP webinar. I really enjoyed it. I would be very interested in a workshop (one -half or one day) on your leadership coaching model. I am very interested in coaching multinational leaders and teams and am wondering what sort of experience you have using your 'cultural' model with global and international teams.

I live in Chicago, by the way.

All best,

Dr. Truskie, 

Thanks for the webinar today.  I found it immensely helpful.  I’d be interested in a follow-up seminar to the webinar today.  I work in the area of training & coaching in a religiously based non-profit.  While your material is in the context of the corporate arena, I see direct applications to what we do.  I’d be interested in taking this a step further.

Stan, 

That was a very good presentation today for CCP.  I’ve been using MBTI for 20 years and stumbled upon your findings through my experience coaching leaders.  I use the MBTI tool to help leaders understand their style and how they lead others.  I’m very interested in learning more about how you have linked the org culture to the preferences and coach leaders.   Thanks
