What the Critics Say

"I firmly believe in the ability of 'ordinary' people to come together to achieve extraordinary results. Power of 2 identifies the key ingredients for breakthrough performance -- a shared mission, a commitment to collaborate, an understanding of individual strengths -- and assembles them into a blueprint that any company would be wise to adopt." (Brian J. Dunn, Chief Executive Officer, Best Buy)
"Those who collaborate achieve the mission. Those who go it alone are likely to fail. This basic principle is too often forgotten. Power of 2 is required reading for anyone, in any kind of organization, who intends to get the job done." (Lieutenant General Russel Honoré, U.S. Army (Ret.), former commander of the Hurricane Katrina Joint Task Force and author of Survival: How a Culture of Preparedness Can Save You and Your Family From Disasters)
