The Culture Engine by S. Chris Edmonds  What attracts you to a book? What is it that tells you ‘This is my next book”? Is it the cover’ or what you read on the book jacket; or maybe it’s the publisher’s review. Every book I pick up seems to have a different magnet. This book, The Culture Engine: A Framework for Driving Results, Inspiring Your Employees, and Transforming Your Workplace, had two attractions. The first was in the foreword written by Ken Blanchard where he says there are two aspects of effective servant leadership: the strategic leadership aspect and the servant aspect - the operational/implementation. In the pages of this book you will find the key to developing an Organizational Constitution that outlines your team’s or company’s purpose, values, strategies,, and goals. With that introduction I was tempted to read the book, but what really sold me on it was when I flipped to the last part of the book and found a chapter titled ‘Don't Leave Your Organizational Culture to Chance’. What Ken Blanchard said in the forward, Chris used to sum up his book. The intent of the book is to educate and inspire leaders to be intentional about purpose, values, behaviors, strategies and goals. Throughout the book Chris Edmonds kept his promise to provide a framework for designing a workplace with an inspiring, values based culture.  The overall theme conveyed through these pages is the design, development, implementation of an Organizational Constitution, and further aligning your organization to it. One of the unique differences of this book is the guidance provided through the delivery of learning materials almost in a workshop format. Interlaced with each subject matter in the book are thinking questions, topical bullet points, and in some cases, step-by-step guidelines for a particular exercise, with each chapter enhanced by a culture effectiveness assessment to accompany each specific stage of progress. These assessments allow leaders and team members to gauge where they are on the aspects of building your organization's culture on a principle based foundation.
