Bamboo Strong is one of my all time favorite books. Applying the "bamboo mindset" has made a big difference in our company and improved the performance of not only some leaders, but also employees of all levels. David's practical style gave us an easy-to-follow path, helping to solve some of the problems we thought were not possible to even tackle. His entertaining and engaging speeches and coaching sessions have secured 100% attendance and impressive reviews by our team members. Our bottom line has improved, and we, as a company are on our way to solidifying our global brand.
