“Static Is Not an Option”
Five Star Review on Amazon By SircleMemphis
Dr. Seth Michael Stone has made an excellent and timely debut with Next. In an age of disruption and globalization, organizations and their leaders cannot afford to remain stuck in their old ways and rest solely on core competencies and expect to survive, much less thrive. Stone offers up a compelling and knowledgeable voice in the fields of leadership and innovation that will engage the reader and get them thinking about what comes next for their companies and organizations. There is something in this book to benefit everyone, from top level management at the largest multinationals, to the sole proprietor looking to expand his business. I look forward to hearing more from Stone in the coming years. Highly recommend.
