Tim Sanders, New York Times bestselling author of Love is the Killer App: How to Win Business and Influence Friends

Shawn Achor, New York Times bestselling author and speaker

Off the field, we face the same challenge as all other businesses establish and maintain a compelling purpose and way of being that will deliver breakthrough results for us, our customers, our community and other key stakeholders. In Leading Clarity, Brad Deutser maps a pathway to authentically develop sustained business performance that will naturally lead to an organization′s unique definition of victory.

"Brad Deutser′s work on clarity is thought–provoking, challenging and insightful. He connects several key features of organizations that all too often seem separate, while persuasively conveying the need for such connections. Not only has he helped me think about the ways in which we work within our institution, he calls into question the traditional silos and functional orientation of business education, thinking, and practice."
Jay Hartzell, Dean, McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas at Austin
