Burlington, MA (PRWEB) January 15, 2005
Linkage, Inc. announces that Everybody Wins: The Story and Lessons Behind RE/MAX (WILEY: 2005), recently authored by Linkage president and CEO Phil Harkins, has already landed on several prominent bestseller lists. Just weeks after publication, Everybody Wins reached the #1 spot on BarnesandNoble.comÂs Business Book Bestseller List, and remains #7 on that list. The book has also reached the #3 spot on the Top Ten of the Wall Street Journal list of business book bestsellers. This past week, the Journal ranked Everybody Wins at #6.
ÂWeÂre thrilled,Â said Harkins, who founded Linkage in 1988. ÂAnd we think that Everybody Wins will continue to resonate within the business community. After all, it provides a new blueprint for driving organizational growth and succeeding despite all obstacles.Â
In Everybody Wins, Harkins and co-author Keith Hollihan examine the business models and leadership practices of seven high growth/high impact companies. They focus especially on RE/MAX, providing a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the strategy, culture, and leadership that transformed the company from a shoestring operation teetering on the brink of collapse into a real estate powerhouse that has enjoyed 380 consecutive months of growth.
ÂThe RE/MAX sagaÂthe story of a huge industry turned upside-down and inside-out by an outrageously bold dream, incredible tenacity, and uncommon business senseÂyields inspiring and practical lessons for all of us,Â said Tom Peters, author of In Search of Excellence.
ÂEverybody Wins is starting to catch on not just with business readers, but also with the general book-buying public,Â added Linkage senior vice president Russell Sullivan. ÂIÂm not surprised. ItÂs an incredible story that reads like a novel.Â
