You will learn what every CEO and leadership team needs to know to embrace corporate culture and sustain it for competitive advantage, global preference and enduring value.

The book's focus on the link between longevity and corporate culture was inspired when Owens' research team discovered a startling trend.

One of the most insightful books i've read. the personal stories along with research on Facebook, Microsoft, Apple, Google is amazing. The banking relationships and comparison between Wells Fargo and Bank of America is spot on.

What You Will Learn


With the average age of a company in the S&P 500 being 15 years today compared to an age of 75 years six decades ago, Corporate America is ailing, with businesses that almost appear disposable. It’s time for a Corporate Cure that will bring businesses back to the glory known a century ago.

Based on more than 500 hours of research and development combined with 19 years of hands-on application, John Owens shares his epiphanies, best practices gained, and roller-coaster story. His determination and belief that corporate culture IS the critical success factor in building a company of endurance is further supported by countless examples and case studies of how corporate culture has played a pivotal role in much admired companies including Google, Facebook, Apple, Microsoft, Wells Fargo, SAS, Starbucks, Chick-fil-A, Johnson & Johnson, and many more!
