"…out-learning the competition" 


Livera on the agenda for the Leadership Summit — what a fantastic choice. I
have seen hundreds of speakers over the last 15 years and Giovanni is one of
the absolute best. I still think about some of the things he said today when
it comes to living life and making the most of things. Also one of the most
entertaining talks I have ever seen. Great Job!

Jack Stack's Great Game of Business – 20th Anniversary Edition

Two decades and eleven languages after its original release, Jack Stack's

Great Game of Business

20th Anniversary Edition is being released with 30% new, additional material.
The bonus material is an amazing 20 year update by Stack and a full-blown
implementation guide with complete online resource library to help you imbed his
time-tested practices in your business. I'm excited that Jack is also keynoting
the upcoming Leadership
Summit in Orlando May 9 – 10
with Dan Pink. He's truly one of the legends of
business, having been invited by most of the US Presidents and leaders around
the world to advise them on business.

292,000% Increase

Jack has proven that The Great Game of Business (GGOB) is the only sensible way
to run a company – getting employees to think and act like owners by teaching
people how business works, holding them accountable and providing them a stake
in the outcome. Case in point:

The practice of GGOB has helped drive
his SRC Holdings stock price from $.10/ share in 1983 to $292/share today…a
292,000% increase in value.

Critical Number for the World's Biggest Mini-Game

20 years ago, Jack was one of the first speakers I ever hosted at the inaugural
"Birthing of Giants" executive program we held on the campus of MIT. I've been a
huge fan ever since and embedded his idea of the "critical number" into our
One-Page Strategic Plan template. As such, it's only fitting, in order to help
spread Stack's revolutionary ideas to an entirely new generation of business
leaders, a critical number for this book has been established — to collect
enough per-orders to hit the bestseller lists.

Exclusive: Free Audiobook for Insights
