@Mike, @Valeria, I hate to confuse all of you, but I wanted to make sure you knew this is Jeannette, I posted the comment - I would hate for the book to go to Jim and not me!...However, we are both big fans of John! and I promese to share the book!

@Mike - thank you so much for coming back to share more of the context around your enthusiastic first comment. I've heard often the saying "if we can get out of our own way" inside organizations. I think that's what it means, as managers have a tremendous opportunity to make a difference for the people inside the organization and thus the company itself.

@Jim - this is great, I love competitions. And it's awesome that John has built such trust with business contacts. I concur with your assessment on poor management.

Oh but I want it more! :) Like Mike Lally; I am a huge fan of John Spence, he is inspiring, motivating, and compelling! I’ve had the pleasure to attend his speaking engagements, and witness the “power of inspiration” business owners and managers; we can all be successful – but we need to take the proper direction. John reminds us of something so forgotten now days; poor management will bring you down!
