Breaking it down in a simple, easy to read manner, and using the words of many a great philosopher, Konovalov reveals how people tend to take the phenomenon of culture for granted, assuming that it is synonymous with organizational culture, and instead posits that "Culture does not exist in an isolated and purified environment without the presence of other people." He reveals how great leadership can cause employees to align with the organization's mission and goals, and shows the reader how to create that sort of environment. Konovalov highlights resources and changes the way we think about corporate leadership from the very top, and down to the newest intern, all the while building a stronger and longer lasting empire.
