Annette Schmeling's curator insight, February 5, 2014 9:34 AM

'Happiness' itself is not a core value at Zappos, but the organizational alignment with core values is so powerful that you cannot miss the end result.

ozziegontang's insight:

In his book: Leadership: Thinking, Being, Doing, Dr. Lee Thayer focuses on the leadership necessary to create a high performance organization.
