     "Beer, author of High Commitment, High Performance, a book on business ethics recently published by Josey-Bass, posited three core reasons why Wall Street failed so badly in the fall of 2008: The firms lacked a higher purpose, lacked a clear strategy, and mismanaged their risk." (Business Week, August 17, 2009)

    "In these economic times this book is more important than ever. A must-read for the leaders of today and tomorrow."

    Douglas R. Conant, president and chief executive officer, Campbell Soup Company

    Praise for High Commitment, High Performance

    "It is seldom that I read a book about leadership and get excited; this one did that to me. The author has found values and aspects of leadership that have worked well for long term execution of strategies. For Boards and CEOs, this is a great book."
    —Leif Johansson, president and chief executive officer, Volvo Group

    "Resilience promises to be the distinguishing characteristic of companies that will prosper from the current economic crisis. Mike Beer’s new book is a compelling manual for success in this new economy."
    —Ravi Venkatesan, chairman, Microsoft India

    "A must read for leaders who want to develop an edge by building a resilient organization for competitive advantage. Beer’s views and recommendations are based on extensive research."
    —Ram Charan, Ram Charan Associates and co-author of the bestselling book, Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done

    "With decades of teaching and research and close engagement with companies, Michael Beer has written a book that not only makes the case for building a high commitment organization, but also provides practical advice for doing it."
    —Jeffrey Pfeffer, professor, Stanford Business School and author, The Human Equation: Building Profits by Putting People First

    "Beer brings a multi-disciplinary perspective from his extensive experience in industry and academia to reveal how leaders of HCHP organizations break through internal barriers and manage multiple tensions in their quest for sustainable value-creation."
    —Robert Kaplan, professor, Harvard Business School and co-author, The Execution Premium and The Balanced Score Card

    "Mike Beer brings his wealth of research and experience to provide fresh insights to the enduring question of what makes companies succeed over the long run. I have utilized many of the principles successfully and recommend them to any corporate leader committed to building an outstanding organization."
    —Ed Ludwig, chairman and chief executive officer, Becton Dickinson
