If you want to know more about culture change, this book is for you. All In is written by two of my favorite business authors. It is the best book I have read on culture change. And if you are in business you know how important is your company's culture and how difficult it is to change.

I especially like the four approaches to this book:
1. The research that backs it up is solid
2. The stories of culture change from multiple industries and companies is awesome
3. The three Es (engaged, enabled, energized) is a great idea. Granted they are not new ideas but putting them all together in one chapter helps the reader to see their power
4. The seven-steps to culture change is an easy to follow guideline to making a culture change that can be used in any business or organization.

I hope you enjoy and can use this book as much as I can.

I have been a huge fan of both Chester and Adrian for years now. My business has worked closely with both of them and it has benefited my business culture and bottom line greatly. There isn't a book I have read in years that does a better job showcasing and explaining how to build a culture that not only creates a larger than life purpose but drives results. My favorite thing about their research and writing is that they dig deep into how positive culture and appreciation isn't just about feeling good but that it also drives results. For anyone interested in improving their life or businss this is a book you MUST read. After you read this book, go buy their other books as well. All the work they do is more than just a way to help your business, it's a way to help improve your life.

Those who have read any of Adrian Gostick and Chester Elton's previously published books (notably The Carrot Principle and The Orange Revolution) and share my high regard for them are no doubt as eager now as I was to read their latest, All In. Based on what they learned from a research study that involved more than 300,000 respondents, it is - in my opinion - their most important book...thus far. Why? Because I think the information, insights, and (especially) the wisdom they share in it will have much wider and much deeper impact than any previous provisions.

Gostick and Elton assert, and I emphatically agree, that it is culture that will differentiate a team or organization and drive initiatives that produce high-impact results. Moreover, they believe - and again I agree - that a "culture" can be any shared community in which there are direct contact and frequent interaction. The Pixar campus in Emeryville (CA), for example, but it could also be the animators within the Walt Disney Company who created classic films such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Pinocchio. In fact, it could be a team of only two or three persons who also have direct contact and frequent interaction while at work. Here's the key point: In a healthy culture (whatever its size and nature may be), those who share it are nourished by mutual respect and trust. It is no coincidence that most of the companies that are annually ranked among those that are the most admired and best to work for are also annually ranked among those that are most profitable and have the greatest cap value in their respective industries.

I just finished reading All In and in all honesty, it was the best book I have ever read regarding deliberately creating a positive, productive corporate culture. The balance of research, examples and practical application was refreshing, compelling and inspiring.

A must read for anyone wanting to lead people "the right way".

Chester Elton and Adrian Gostick's All In is a must read for company and business leaders that are looking to promote their vision and inspire others to action. This book offers invaluable techniques and strategies for improving productivity and performance among employees, with the ultimate goal of creating a positive work culture for all. To this end, they present effective principles in a memorable way, such as the 3 E's: ways to engage, enable, and energize employees and the 7 Step Road Map: Define Your Burning Platform, Create a Customer Focus, Develop Agility, Share everything, Partner with your talent, Root for Each Other, and Establish Clear Accountability. Nobody does it better than the Orange guys!

Cliff's Notes: Great read, solid data, actionable material.

Just so you know, I have worked with/for Chester and Adrian before. So look at my review as a unique insight into their knowledge, expertise, professionalism and general genuinosity-ness.

This book is the latest in their successful line of talent-focused publishing efforts. Their books (The Integrity Advantage, The Carrot Principle)and the speeches and training based upon them have always had a reputation for drilling straight to basic principles that enable leadership and their organizations succeed.

All In is, obviously, a culmination of their efforts and learning so far. The writing is solid as ever; wit and wisdom combine for quick reading, but the research and case studies provide a bedrock foundation of learning that's not just enjoyable, it works...at work. Actionable.

Very basically, the book details how to define what's REALLY important to your Culture (organization, division, store, location, team) and then how to get ALL of your people "All In." As in; on board, in the boat, on the train, bought in...to accomplishing your goals, mission and values.

One of my favorite bits; The research for this book (3 years, 300,000 people) suggests that Engagement is no longer the "holy grail" of talent development. Though it's still incredibly important, Engagement must be accompanied by Enabled and Energized people, or you're missing huge opportunity. This of course makes for a handy mnemonic in the form of E+E+E, but the research bears it out; organizations with high levels of Engagement are trounced by those with high levels of all three "E's."

Highly suggested reading for any leader who wants to build better teams and winning cultures.
