Peak: How Great Companies Get Their Mojo from Maslow Reviews

  • Colleen McCarthy
    Usually I hate business books because they have one premise and it takes them 300 pages what could be told in one 5 page HBR article. But this book is different, Conley builds on the premise and I felt I learned new things all the way to the end of the book. It is a really compelling and insightful ...

    Boring like heaven. Usually I fall asleep once or less per book for a minute, this one sent me for three. Original source, probably as for everything else, was much better."How to create meaning?" "Read "man's search for meaning" and watch "Schindler's list"". Wow, excellent advice, thank you. Here'...

    Just heard a talk by Chip which was very inspirational. He talked a lot about Abraham H. Maslow's hierarchy, and how it can be applied to employees, customers, and investors. Employee pyramid is: salary => recognition => calling. I thought his principles were similar to Tony Hsieh's book Delivering ...
