    An eye opener.

    Truly impressed with the content of this book. I have read many books on changing the culture in a organization, but have never found a book that puts how to create a shift in an organization in to such understandable terms. I was happy to see the inclusion of true real world stores showing how the concepts presented in the book can be applied in multiple business settings. Great read I would recommend this to anyone looking to effect change at any level of their business.

    Excellent read for leaders in any industry

    The experts on accountability have really laid it all out on the table in this new book. The authors' 20 plus years of consulting experience and use of actual client case studies and stories in the book really validate the tools they introduce (and reiterate) relative to Culture management and change. This book is a must read for leaders. If you don't have time to sit down to read it, keep your eyes open for the audio version that is coming out soon.

    A Must Read!!!

    I read the previous books by Roger Connors and Tom Smith and thought the principles they describe in their books are easy to apply to the "real world". I was excited to get my hands on their latest book and I have to say that it is a must read! If you are interested in a no-nonsense approach to changing your culture, you need to read this book.

    Creating a culture of accountability is essential in the workforce!

    Change the Culture, Change the Game is a must read book if you want to learn how to create long lasting positive results within your company. I have learned that my experiences within a company are creating beliefs that drive the actions leading to positive or negative results. This book provides excellent examples of real companies making a positive cultural transition, and bringing about outstanding results again and again.

    Idea-rich playbook for change agents

    In this new, revised version of their 2002 book, "Journeys to the Emerald City", management consultants Roger Connors and Tom Smith offer wisdom, anecdotes and facts to help you modify your organizational culture for positive business results. The authors discuss change, culture, and people by providing three-step programs, five-principle approaches, three-level matrices, and a pyramid. The authors employ multiple models because they address elements of the workplace that are as intangible as they are important. As Connors and Smith are fond of saying, "Either you will manage the culture, or it will manage you." This is proven true even though formulas and jargon occasionally muffle their sound methods and useful message. getAbstract recommends this book to CEOs, executives, human resources professionals, parents and anyone running a team who wants better results.
