As a successful entrepreneur, Mark McClain knows what can make or break an organization. Despite the abundance of how-to books on rescuing legacy companies, McClain noticed a severe shortage of advice about how to build a company on a sturdy foundation of culture, values, and mutual success. So, he decided to write his own actionable guidebook to help leaders create sustainable, people-first cultures.
