“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.”

“My book The Four Tendencies is about a personality framework that Iâ€™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 canâ€™t I go running now?’ And I thought, ‘Well, why? Itâ€™s the same person, the same behavior, at that time it was effortless but now she canâ€™t do it. Whatâ€™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 didnâ€™t think there was a playbook for that.”
