Reviews

"Looks at how treating customers really well can bring huge dividends...in the era when customers can share information instantly on social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook, it's more important than ever for companies to keep them happy." --Forbes.com"Shankman contends that in the long run, leaders who show loyalty, optimism, humility, and a reverence for customer service will create both profits and a happy workforce...He explains how their thoughtfulness and willingness to collaborate helped them create solid bottom lines for their businesses and happy workplaces." --Upstart Business Journal"The book's anti-Machiavellian approach is trendy and humanistic, and it bears repeating by thought leaders." --Publishers Weekly"A corporate consultant argues that kinder, gentler corporate leaders and corporations are winning out over older, tougher images of take-no-prisoners leadership...A smoothly put together business leadership primer." --Kirkus Reviews"Excellent, thought-provoking book for a new generation of leaders." --Booklist"As CEO of one of the fastest-growing clothing lines in the world, I greatly admire Peter Shankman's strategies and techniques, and have implemented many of them at SCOTTEVEST. I highly recommend this book if you are a business owner or entrepreneur trying to build a unique brand and truly productive work environment." --Scott Jordan, CEO, Scottevest"Shankman has put in a wakeup call for leaders to examine each of their daily interactions from the bottom to top. Through memorable examples, he offers straightforward and practical advice on how to conduct oneself in a way that will lead to win-win relationships with the people that matter most - essentially everybody in our world." --Leigh Thompson, professor, Kellogg School of Management and author of Creative Conspiracy."Fresh thinking that feels familiar. And it should - we've been told 'play nice' since we were kids. But Peter expands the thought to encompass flexibility, compassion and the secret sauce: collaboration." --Cathy Calhoun, president, North America, Weber Shandwick
