Publisher's Summary

There are hidden laws at work in every aspect of your business. Understand them, and you can create extraordinary growth. Ignore them, and you run the risk of becoming another statistic.

It's become almost clichéd: Eight out of every 10 new ventures fail. Of the ones that succeed, how many truly thrive - for the long run? And of those that thrive, how many continually overcome their growth hurdles...and ultimately scale, with meaning, purpose, and profitability? The answer, sadly, is not many.

Author Lex Sisney is on a mission to change that picture. After more than a decade spent leading and coaching high-growth technology companies, Lex discovered that the companies that thrive do so in accordance with six laws - universal principles that govern the success or failure of every individual, team, and organization.

Dynamic & insightful

I enjoyed listening to this book as the flow and narration kept my interest on a thought provoking and detailed process. Lex packs a lot of information into this book which provides both nuggets of knowledge that I can apply right away as well as incentive for me to read the book again. The PSIU paradigm is a universal approach to understanding people and maximizing team output.

Every entrepreneur should read this book.

Great book. I have my team reading it now. This should be required to be read in every business school and before the start of any enterprise.

Great book, bad Audible encoding

This is a useful book that frames leadership and interpersonal principles in a fresh way. The problem was inability to record the chapters so they could be followed in the Audible app.

Not useful - Nothing but theories and analogies

It's not a very practical book. it's all based on the concept that a business follows the laws of physics and thermodynamics. the book is mainly full of analogies and a bunch of theoretical principles and opinions. I listen to 3 hours of it and got absolutely nothing out of it. for Little League 2 hours all he's doing is rambling off a series of letters that they use to classify different types of people. It was so ridiculous to listen to

Understand the dynamics of your organization

I really loved this book. His PSIU matrix really clarified a lot of dynamics I was trying to understand within my team and the larger organization I work. It even allowed me to understand my own strengths and reasoning in a new light. Highly recommended.

I found the performance is better at 1.25x or 1.5x as it feels far too slow at normal speed. Hence the 4 stars. At a faster speed it's 5.

Made me stop and think

Really enjoyed the story and the theory of applying physics principles to org design. What other laws of physics could apply, I wonder?
