More than ever, organizations need dynamic strategic leaders who can think unconventionally beyond the boundaries of the ‚Äėcore business‚Äô and recognize nascent market signals in an era when organizations must look far afield to identify growth opportunities.

Packed with dozens of real-world examples and uplifting leadership portraits, Beyond the Mirage offers generations of leaders a touchstone text that paints a compelling picture of what it means to think and lead strategically, and provides proven principals and tools for escaping the operational trap of today to create the growth of tomorrow.

Every company has its own values and brand which it wants its customers and clients to engage with and develop loyalty to.
At the same time, research shows that 70% of customers‚Äô brand perception is determined by their experience with the company‚Äôs employees. Moreover, 41% of customers are loyal because of good employee attitude.
This book shows how companies can translate their values and brand into the daily practices and behaviour of their employees, especially those who must deal directly with customers. Drawing its principles from psychology, sociology, philosophy, neuroscience and leadership, the 31 Practices method has been successfully adopted by large and small companies around the world, and has been responsible for significantly enhancing customer satisfaction and loyalty.
