Jennings discovered that consistent high performance takes more than locker-room speeches to the sales team. What these companies have in common is a culture based on a shockingly simple precept: think big, but act small. It works for retailers like PETCO and Cabela's, manufacturers like Medline Industries, service companies like Sonic Drive-In, private educational companies like Strayer, and industrial giants like Koch Enterprises.
In Think Big, Act Small, Jennings reveals the unique power of combining the strengths of a big organization with the hunger of a start-up. Any company, no matter what its size or industry, can benefit from following these examples.

Cultures Succeed Again and Again
I liked how the author built each story as to integrate to what the title states.
Fun to listen to as I felt part of the story in my current work. It gave more confidence to what I was doing and what I do in business.
A positive outlook from the doom and gloom the media sheds on business today as pontificating oppressors of the human spirit.
If you are down on your business or work read this quick book and keep it handy for reference.

Mandatory Listening for Business
Tells the story of the underlying principles of consistently profitable and successful companies through their stories. One of the few books I would say are mandatory reading for any business manager or leader.
