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.

My company had me read this. Very interesting read. Only problem is, if all of management isn't "All in" your people wont by into the idea. Half my co-workers didn't read the book.This made it hard to execute the teachings from the book.

I left the company since everyone wasn't all in. Reading a book like this gets your hopes up about what could be.I bought a personal copy for myself.

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.

Employee engagement is currently a hot topic in the business community today.

Gostich and Elton, however, make a strong case that engagement alone is not enough. They argue employers also need employees to feel energized and enabled. (thus the three E's)

I was originally attracted to the book by its cover reference to creating a culture of belief. Since organizational change is really nothing more than individual change and I believe addressing belief is a neglected area in discussion about the individual change process, I felt compelled to read this book. I was not disappointed.

My book is heavily marked up with notes and underlining relative to the passages I want to address or quote in my writings and presentations. From the initial section on Culture Works, to the second section on the 7 Steps Roadmap managers can use to create a culture that works, to the third section on Culture Tools, this book delivers.

If you are interested in organizational culture and how culture impacts both organizational and individual performance, this book should be on your must read list.

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 recently changed jobs. I've gone to work for a small company that is in the midst of that painful stage of going from a "mom & pop" type business into a full fledged up-and-coming stalwart in our industry. Anyone who has ever been a part of this type of transition knows it can be painful at times and these companies often struggle with building their identity. As I have been tasked with building corporate structure and putting infrastructure in place, a huge and burning question I've had to ask is what type of culture do we wish to perpetuate and how do we get our people on board? So when I ran across the book, ALL IN: HOW THE BEST MANAGERS CREATE A CULTURE OF BELIEF AND DRIVE BIG RESULTS, by Adrian Gostick and Chester Elton, this was a book that immediately shot to the top of my "must read" list.

Planning a corporate culture is the easy part. I've already put together our company mission and vision statements and am working diligently on our new Standard Operating Procedures manual. At the corporate level it is clearly understood that if we are to survive, we must evolve as a company. We must change the way things are done to bring about consistency and continuity. We also realize we have a team of great employees put together that can take us to the next level, however reality gets in the way and warns us that not everyone is going to adapt easily to the changes we are about to implement, so getting employee buy-in is a major concern. That's where this book comes in.

All In builds upon the principle that employees must be engaged, empowered and energized; the E+E+E principle. Sounds simple, right? What so many companies may not realize is how important each component truly is. I love this example the authors used to illustrate the point.
