"Leadership in High Performance Organizational Culturesis a welcome addition to the tools available to the CEO, manager, and performance technologist. This book belongs in the briefcase, not the bookshelf." --Dean R. Larson Department Manager, U.S. Steel--Gary Works Adjunct Professor, Purdue University

"For anyone in a position of leadership, this book is about freedom. Freedom to move beyond the constraint of 'style' and discover that leadership is about creating the right culture for an organization. The reader learns that leading culture change can truly be an acquired skill." --Brian E. Falck, President and Chief Executive Officer H. J. Heinz Company of Canada Ltd.

"If you only have time to read one book this year on leadership and organizational/cultural change, this should be the one. It should be required reading for CEOs and anyone else who wants to make sense out of all the management literature fighting for shelf-space today. The L4 strategy that Dr. Truskie articulates deserves a very careful read--not a mere feel-good book." --J. Robert White, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Michael Baker Corporation Adjunct Professor, Carnegie Mellon University

"This is a truly important contribution that vividly defines how leaders build lasting success into their organizations. The book offers a new perspective and meaning to the term 'leadership' that will definitely challenge (and change!) the way many leaders view their roles as champions of their organization's enduring success. I highly recommend this to leaders as well as to those who develop and support them." --Gregory R. Spencer, Senior Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer Equitable Resources, Inc.

"[This book] is an extraordinary discussion of organizational culture and leadership supported with solid examples. A blueprint to improve a company's effectiveness. A must-read for executives and managers." --Herbert D. Gordon, President and Chief Executive Officer Association of Directory Marketing, Inc.

"[This book] is enjoyable reading that provides proven information and understandable knowledge for any executive or manager to live by. Dr. Truskie's real world experiences and examples show how and offer proof that his L4 strategy works. A must-read for anyone wanting to become a more effective and respected leader." --Scott L. Bender, Vice President, Resort Operations Seven Springs Mountain Resort

"[This book] is long overdue and will enhance anyone's understanding of leadership, leadership styles, and organizational performance." --David J. Meckstroth, President and Chief Executive Officer Upper Valley Medical Center

review by . January 14, 2000
At various points throughout the book, Truskie cautions that there is no one "ideal" style, nor an infallible "model", nor any single combination of leadership traits, characteristics and behaviors which are most appropriate to all organizations in all phases of their development. He urges his reader to absorb and digest the contents of Leadership in High-Performance Organizational Cultures with care, of course, but also with some degree of critical detachment.
