~ Jocelyn Davis, author of The Greats on Leadership and The Art of Quiet Influence

“Every  organization  has  a  culture;  is  yours  intentional  or  by  default? Claudette Rowley offers a strengths-based approach that ignites innovation, productivity, and joy in the workplace by integrating curiosity, truth-telling, root cause analysis, and emotional awareness into the cultural norms. At all organizational levels, people become more comfortable with the uncomfortable, learning to trust one another, embracing change, and creating an inspiring culture.”

~ Rosemary Strunk, JD, GCSC, Living Courageously, LLC

“Cultural Brilliance offers us a new road map for inclusive, intentional change that’s driven, designed, and implemented by people at all levels of an organization. The Cultural Brilliance System allows the potential, invention, and intelligence of any workforce to emerge as it creates a culture that supports its growth and success.”

~ Doug Kirkpatrick, keynote speaker, consultant, educator, and author of Beyond Empowerment, TEDx

“Whether you realize it or not, every action you take influences your company’s culture, for better or worse, and that’s true for every single person who works there. If you haven’t put careful thought and serious effort into the culture you want to create—perhaps because there are always other things that seem more urgent—you should. Bad culture can bring down even a brilliant and powerful CEO, as it did at Uber. Good culture can help a company win the talent wars and then unleash that talent to create unprecedented innovation, as it does at Google.

“This  book  is  a  road  map  for  creating  an  organizational  culture  that supports and empowers the people who work at your company, and thus your company itself. Rowley has drawn on her decades of experience to design a straightforward system for transforming culture, and provides real-world examples of how that system works.”
