“In The VALUE Formula, Ken does a phenomenal job in providing a practical way to respond to the mandate to ‘do more with less’. By explaining what ‘value’ is, he helps individuals and organizations take their focus off themselves and place it on those they serve. Highlighting the struggles faced by many organizations today, he shares concepts which lead to real results. Thanks, Ken!”

“A goal of every individual and organization should be to deliver value; something which others want and need. It begins with a Vision – a purpose – and, then, a clear understanding of how to make it happen. By touching on topics like how to craft a vision, ensuring proper alignment and how to maximize own assets as well as how to leverage those of others, The VALUE Formulais much more than a guide to increasing your value — It is the blueprint.”
—Nancy Lehoux, author of Breaking Limiting Patterns
