“My book is about how I learned to be a leader and how I built my company. I wrote it because when I started I would spend every Friday night in the bookstore, reading about CEOs and successful organizations, so that I could learn from them. And I found wonderful stories and amazing stories of success, but I always left wondering how they did it.”

Faster Than Normal  is about understanding that a trait that many of us are born with, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, or ADHD, is not the curse or the disability that we’ve been told it is all of our lives, that if managed properly, allows us to be faster than normal, to have quicker a brain, to come up with answers faster than other people, to create, to explore, to learn faster and differently, to get more hours in our day back, to get more of our life back. It is a gift, not a curse.”

“My book The Four Tendencies is about a personality framework that I’ve identified called the Four Tendencies that divides all of humanity into four types: Upholder, Questioner, Obliger, and Rebel. I got my first insight into this framework when I had lunch with a friend and she said something that got me obsessed with this question of personality types. She said, ‘I know I would be happier if I would go running, and when I was in high school I was on the track team and I never missed track practice, so why can’t I go running now?’ And I thought, ‘Well, why? It’s the same person, the same behavior, at that time it was effortless but now she can’t do it. What’s going on?’ My determination to figure out the answer to that question, in the end, led me to write a whole book, called The Four Tendencies.”

“I was inspired to write this book, UNLEASHING THE INNOVATORS, because I love big companies, I worked in one for 25 years, and in my consulting practice, company after company I meet is struggling with culture change, and revitalization, and growth, and energy, and risk and dealing with fear of failure. And many of them were using startups to try to kind of put new energy into the company. And yet, I didn’t think there was a playbook for that.”

“As a writer for Fortune magazine, I look for the biggest, most important, most interesting, most colorful business stories, period. I also have lived in Silicon Valley for almost 20 years now. And so, as Uber was exploding on the scene, it fairly quickly became obvious to me that that was the story that had all the qualities I was looking for…”
