Tom Peters

Tom Peters’ new book is a bundle of beautiful dynamite. While I’ve been a CEO for 30 years, I still learned much worth knowing from The Excellence Dividend.  You will too.

John C. Bogle, founder, Vanguard

For decades Tom Peters has been preaching the gospel of putting people first, and in today’s rapidly changing business environment, this message is more important than ever.

As our region grapples with workforce development, Gallup numbers show that fewer than one-third of employees feel engaged with their work, and one study suggests that fully half of American jobs are at risk due to technology. The Excellence Dividend stems from a simple proposition that an unabashed commitment to excellence in all we do is the best defense—and offense—in the face of overwhelming change.

With his unparalleled expertise and inimitable charisma, Peters offers brilliantly simple, actionable guidelines for success. He provides a roadmap for organizations and individuals to thrive amidst the tech tsunami, and he has a lot of fun doing it. The Excellence Dividend is an important new book from one of today’s greatest business thinkers.

“Optimists take heart! Tom Peters turns up the volume in this wildly inspiring guide for anyone fearful that the robots will make us all obsolete. Excellence, it turns out, offers the best path to survival. Machines may be smart but passion, inspiration, kindness and the ability to actually care are smarter.”
