Our Book: Everybody Matters

Introducing the little book that started it all.

Everybody Matters has inspired organizations across the globe to be, in short, be more human. More than that, it’s the very foundation of everything we do here at the BW Leadership Institute.

This book will challenge the way you think about how to run a business and, above all, how to be an inspirational leader. It chronicles the transformation of capital equipment and engineering consulting firm Barry-Wehmiller’s transformation to a people-centric business. CEO Bob Chapman, along with co-author Raj Sisodia, shares what it took to create a thriving organization where people feel valued, cared for, and that they play an integral role.

We guarantee you’ll be inspired and equipped with real, tangible ideas you can implement in your organization for tomorrow. And of course, it’s just the first step – so we encourage you to Work with Us to go even further on your journey to Truly Human Leadership.
