This book was great. The 42 rules were helpful and the discussions that followed were entertaining and clever. The authors elaborated on the 'rules' with compelling naratives, sprinkled with interesting anecdotes, and drawing from literature, philosophy and popular culture to flesh out their points. I found much that was useful for running my medical practice and helping my staff work better as a team, but I also found it excellent for helping to enrich the social dynamics within my own family. Just great; entertaing,thought-provoking and full of useful insight.

42 Rules for Creating WE is a novel and fresh approach to corporate
community with applications outside the business realm. The
contributors remind us that working together, collaborating, and
supporting each other is the most efficient, and rewarding way, to
bring about positive change. The timely message is a reminder that
together we are much more capable than we are when working alone.

Wow. This is not your ordinary business "how to" book, that's certain. Unlike almost every other book of this genre, this is grounded in the hard science of the brain. How do you transform dysfunctional organizations, or companies that are not operating at peak possibility? It's the $64,000 question (I'm dating myself here) faced everyday by leaders. Facile answers are easy; roadmaps that work are more a challenging. 42 Rules of Creating We offers learning tools developed by 19 of the world's top organizational behavior theorists and practitioners, all of whom are affiliated with the Creating We Institute, a multi-disciplinary group of thinkers, who apply cutting edge scientific thinking about neuroscience and effective behavioral change to address workplace relationship conundrums. The Institute, founded by Judith Glaser, has already established a reputation for transformative work. This book turns their practical ideas into workable theories that executives and managers can use as they go through their "I to WE" journey. The book covers a lot of material. Adopting "WE" means changing your way of thinking, conversing, and behaving. Companies that transform their cultures from "I" to "WE" experience side effects of innovation, cooperation, open conversations, and overall good health.

As a recently retired administrator in K-12 education for 36 years, I heard about the need for working as a team extensively and received much professional development in this area. Over the years, most attempts to create a collaborative, cooperative environment among educators involved brief team building activities and trial and error strategies. If only the "42 Rules" had been available years ago, we leaders could have followed a substantive guide with research based applications. The book's adherence to best practices provides the cornerstone for success.

As a teacher, this book is very relevant to the way we work as teachers and administrators across the school. This book is full of both wisdom and practical suggestions for how to deal with challenges and issues that pop up when working with others. I highly recommend this for those interested in bolstering their own leadership skills, but also for those who want to be a positive influence for more collaboration based on genuine respect for oneself and for others. Thank you!!

This book is great. As someone that doesn't have as much to read as I would like, I really enjoyed the "lesson a day" feel that the book offers. Whether you're taking the bus to work or simply have a few extra minutes to spare, each rule is short enough that you will be able to read one and still keep to your schedule, and contains enough insightful and helpful information that it makes it worthwhile to do so.

When I first learned about this book I couldn't for the life of me figure out what "WE" was in context of the title. After reading this section of the introduction the meaning became clear:

"We believe that WE are all connected. Through a WE-centric rather than a traditional I-centric approach, our collective wisdom grows and evolves, creating stronger solutions and mutual respect for the unique contributions of others. We-centric thinking can change the very nature of leadership, culture, brands, businesses and other organizations...and it all starts with conversation. "

42 Rules for Creating WE was written by many different authors who are members of The Creating We Institute (CWI) that was created in 2007. What I learned from this book is that when we approach life from the perspective of "WE" rather than "I" everyone benefits. I love the way this book is structured. Each chapter is a separate entity entirely which means you don't have to read it in order and you can commit to reading a chapter a day without losing your place.

Topics and concepts covered in 42 Rules for Creating WE include self care, team building, relationship building, leadership lessons and management solutions. As an individual I learned much that will help me manage my life in a more compassionate way but I also think that businesses will benefit greatly by asking new managers to read this book before beginning work.
