Culture is not a side priority on high-performing teams. It is EVERYTHING. Jason Barger is right on in his approach to people, alignment and values. His spirit and work is infectious and highly-valuable. Thermostat Cultures is a must read. --Howard Behar, former President, Starbucks Coffee
There is a common desire to be part of something larger than ourselves. In a team setting, culture is the glue that brings together like minded individuals, for better or worse. Perennial losing cultures have indifference to communication, accountability, and grit. Strong winning cultures promote these values as the lifeblood of their journey. Jason Barger s proactive spirit and message is foundational. --Shane Battier, 2-Time NBA World Champion (Miami Heat)
Organizations love posters with words about Values. That s always good. But thankfully Jason Barger takes the next steps to help you live the culture you want with intentional action. Thermostat Cultures gives the reader permission to lead and to care. --Terry Hershey, author of The Power of Pause

Barger explores the heart of the matter and the tie that binds us all together..our culture. Your task becomes setting the temperature for positive change in your world.
Be warned that going thru these exercises will lead to effective results and intentional improvement in all of those intangibles that really make a difference in our personal and professional relationships. Barger's book is poignant, thoughtful and laser sharp. Also recommending Barger's books: Step Back from the Baggage Claim, and ReMember. Quintensential books for business, community, and group leaders.
Jason Barger does a masterful job walking you through the 6 "A's" that you must consider when building, creating, and maintaining your culture. His stories are spot on and inspiring. He, without a doubt, is the kind of guy who "walks the talk" and it shows.
I read a lot of books and only recommend a few to my friends and colleagues. Thermostat Cultures is one of them.
