The highly respected Silicon Valley turnaround expert has seen firsthand that the leadership skills that can take an organization from poor to peak performance and outdistancing its competition were not taught in business schools or management seminars or even as a part of the leadership conversation. Real Teams Win, his new book, is the culmination of his four decades of high-impact methods that offer real change from within the organization with real results – that work really fast.
