A great book with valuable insights for business success,
This review is from: Everybody Wins: The Story and Lessons Behind RE/MAX (Hardcover)
This is one of the most outstanding books I have read . It tells a story and gives an in depth explanation of the reasons for the successes. The ability and single-mindedness of the leaders of the founders, Gail and Dave Liniger have provided cohesion and impetus to RE/MAX growth and efforts. The book is an outstanding case study which I am sure will become a standard text in colleges and universities.
I was also impressed with the care taken to recruit leaders and other employees into RE/MAX. As stated, "Recruit dream sharers for skills and knowledge but select finalists for values and attitudes." It seems to me that this credo has helped to assure RE/MAX's outstanding, continued success. Also, the unceasing emphasis on "stay focused," " brand dominance" and "pace line leadership" to assure growth helps to explain why RE/MAX is the world leader.
EVERYBODY WINS masterfully explains the RE/MAX concept and operation in my view. Harkins and Hollihan's outstanding case study helps to assure that RE/MAX is a "beacon" for firms and persons seeking success. I have no doubt university business schools will seize it to make their studies current, meaningful and reflect what is possible in American business both nationally and internationally.
