Stan Slap spoke to Googlers in Mountain View on August 2, 2011 about his new book Bury My Heart at Conference Room B: The Unbeatable Impact of Truly Committed Managers.

About the book:

"The notion that values matter----in the workplace as well as at home----is certainly not new to the ranks of management gurus and corporate leaders. What is novel in consultant Slap's first book is his passion for the subject, which bleeds from every page, and his easy-to-use framework for identifying and promoting values throughout the business world.

Setting the stage, first, involves explaining the business case for values: why everyone must live his or her personal values in the workplace and which companies adhere to that philosophy. In sidebars, Slap tells the stories of EMC, HP, Rhino Records, SAS, Quad/Graphics, and others that showcase the bottom-line impact of managerial emotional commitment. Next, then, are the value exercises: the list and definition of 50 values and the winnowing to 10, 5, and, finally, 3.

As to be expected, the author leads us to organizational implementation, focusing on the selling of values to staff and, ultimately, to the C-suite. In a passion-infused narrative, Slap gives every manager the tools to change. Now, if it will only stick!" --Barbara Jacobs from Booklist
