In his disarming style--and with remarkable clarity--Dykstra acknowledges that the way we've been doing things is becoming increasingly less effective, and, he consoles those of us who feel empty, lost (or, at the very least numb) in the marketplace today that we are supposed to feel this way--because it is the system that is broken, not us! In addition, he asserts that within this realization lies great promise, for the fragments of today's organizations will someday (soon) be restructured to form a beautiful mosaic made up of more dynamic and life-giving ones in the future.
Through hoards of ground-breaking research, and numerous personal anecdotes, Dykstra elegantly weaves a tapestry of hope by encouraging leaders, entrepreneurs, and organizations to both embrace human individuality, and, to become more "value-based and meaningful" by "leveraging the power of connections both inside and between our tribes."
I would strongly encourage everyone on the planet to buy this book...to read his blog...and to hire him as a consultant or speaker right away! Doing so will not only ignite a passion within yourself, your peers, and your organizations...it will leave all of us better prepared to maintain a viable presence in the emergent, ever-changing marketplace of tomorrow.
Bravo! Josh Allan Dykstra...Your daring insights, vivid analogies, and mindful intonations make this book a rare and resplendent gem among the noisy and mind-numbing publications of our time.
Caution: If you are looking for a specific roadmap to follow that will cleanly match your individual challenges, look elsewhere. Josh paints in watercolor and big ideas. He allows - expects - readers to use their own brains. Bring your brain to the table and prepare to be challenged.
Josh Allan Dykstra has written an incredible book. And don't be fooled by the simple and straight-forward language. There's a lot of passion, a lot of smarts and some serious depth in this book.
The final question at the end tells it all: "What am I going to do differently now?" asks Josh. It is the ultimate appeal and this book leaves us inspired with meaning, purpose and ideas for action - actions that anyone, the ordinary and the extraordinary among us, can start post-haste.
