Then join the conversation." -- Jim Rogers, Chairman, President, and CEO, Duke Energy "As a leader, I have struggled to find ways to fuel employee engagement. I have also observed how leaders at Microsoft, Accenture, and PepsiCo have striven to engage employees. It's hard work! Boris Groysberg and Michael Slind make a very strong case that organizational conversation--in contrast to the traditional 'corporate communication' model--is critical to helping leaders meet that challenge. More important, through in-depth discussion of real business situations, they provide insight on how to make organizational conversation happen. The model presented in Talk, Inc., furthermore, is as relevant to harnessing the power of customers as it is to managing your workforce." -- Dina Dublon, Director of Accenture, Microsoft, and PepsiCo; former Chief Financial Officer, JPMorgan Chase "Talk, Inc., presents a template for creating organizational excellence. The authors have fashioned an outstanding explanation of a fundamental leadership competence: facilitating effective communication. This book, I believe, is a must-read for every organizational leader." -- S. Roy Choudhury, Chairman and Managing Director, Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd.

The most successful companies don't just out-compete their rivals, they out-think their rivals. And you can't generate smart ideas without free-spirited conversation. Read this book--and then talk about it with as many of your colleagues as you can!" -- William C. Taylor, Cofounder, Fast Company; author, Practically Radical: Not-So-Crazy Ways to Transform Your Company, Shake Up Your Industry, and Challenge Yourself
