"Rob Lebow and William Simon are on the money. Lasting Change is the only way to go and it can only happen through shared values. Lasting Change is just great-a must read!"- Ken Blanchard, Chairman and CEO, Blanchard Training & Development, Inc. and coauthor of The One Minute Manager.

"Don't miss this book! You'll come away with some extraordinary insights into how great companies make the Shared Values Process an essential principle of their strategy."- John Sculley, principal, Sculley Brothers and former CEO, Apple Computer.

"The concepts and examples are extraordinary. Lebow's Shared Values Process will prove to you that the tired old prescription of 'fixing people' is flawed.

This formula will work for any organization that wants lasting change!" -Paul Horgen, President and CEO, IBM Mid-America Employees Federal Credit Union.

"The book is well written, straightforward, and no-nonsense. It holds your attention. It is a book I will certainly require in the MBA courses I teach." - Four-star general Warren D. Johnson, USAF (Ret.), Adjunct Professor, Wake Forest University.

"Lasting Change is packed full of the stuff that makes great people and great companies-a well-packaged postgraduate education that is sure to have a lasting impact on those who have the good fortune to read it. It's a must read for entry-level neophytes and seasoned CEOs."- Harold Burson, Chairman, Burson-Marsteller.

"A great collection of anecdotes and experiences that will help a manager develop into a leader.

The book has a lot of information and is well written." -Philip Crosby, CEO of Philip Crosby Associates II, Inc., author of Quality Is Free and The Absolutes of Leadership.

From the Inside Flap:

Lasting Change The Shared Values Process That Makes Companies Great Rob Lebow & William L. Simon Do you work just for money? Or do you seek depth and satisfaction on the job? Surveys show that we want both. Leading companies have begun to recognize that increased productivity and profitability come when motivated workers find their jobs dignified and fulfilling. Until now there has never been a realistic business process that successfully combined the ideal with the practical, the human with the pragmatic, the honorable with the profitable. The Shared Values Process presented in Lasting Change is a quantifiable, tested program that rapidly translates into bottom-line profits and enhanced job satisfaction. You’ll find

  • the eight basic shared values that will transform your workplace
  • how to measure the current effectiveness of your organization with an easy-to-use Values and Attitude Study
  • why "fixing" people never works, and what you should do to help people work at their optimum best
  • how great companies are transforming people at every level into true leaders
  • how your organization can get people at every level to take responsibility and follow through
  • how to benchmark and prove that the Shared Values Process actually works
As business and political leaders decry the lack of strong values in the workplace, Rob Lebow and William Simon take a pragmatic approach to putting those values back into any business. The tested, documented techniques in Lasting Change are a sure way to find continuous improvement in communication, innovation, enthusiasm, responsibility-taking, empowerment, and team play. Top companies such as Armco Steel, Trane, Holland American Lines, Westmark Hotels, PepsiCo, Engen South Africa, and Frontier Phone have been putting the Shared Values Process to work. The effects on customer focus, competitive advantage, and bottom-line results will astonish you!
