Summary, etc.: This book is about igniting the power of any manager's emotional commitment to his or her company--worth more than financial, intellectual and physical commitment combined. Sometimes companies get this from their managers in the early garage days or in times of tremendous gain, but it's almost unheard of to get it on a sustained, self-reinforced basis. Of course your company is only going to get it if you're willing to give it. Slap proves that emotional commitment comes from the ability to live your deepest personal values at work and then provides a process that allows you to use your own values to achieve success.--From publisher description.
