Included are the practical skills and tools for business leaders to proactively design and grow their company’s internal experience.

SPEARFISH, S.D., Oct. 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rose Group Int’l Senior Partners Dr. Rachel MK Headley and Meg Manke, MSSL, announced today the release of their first book, iX Leadership: Create High-Five Cultures and Guide Transformation. Corporate success is hampered by the failure to create an internal experience (iX) that keeps the best people, enables true innovation and creativity, and implements change quickly and effectively. iX Leadership: Create High-Five Cultures and Guide Transformation enables leaders to change the way business gets done.

Headley and Manke shake traditional corporate culture to its core in this important and desperately needed book. Headley, a former operational science officer of the Landsat satellite program, and Manke, an expert in talent management and organizational psychology, combine research and personal insight to demonstrate the importance and practical application of their proprietary Culture Types and Kurtz Change Transition Model. They demonstrate how to incorporate these concepts into the best leadership practices of today. 

iX Leadership: Create High-Five Cultures and Guide Transformation provides insight into people, what motivates them, and how they deal with changes. Whether you want to create a culture to take you to the next $1B IPO, to survive the pre-revenue phase of your business, to improve sales, to implement changes more quickly and effectively, or to eliminate unspoken conversations, this book is your guide to achieving the legacy and success that you dream of.

“Over 50% of the workforce is disengaged,” said Dr. Rachel MK Headley, Senior Partner at Rose Group, Int’l. “Every leader in the world should be looking for the leadership style that will create cultures that allow their people to thrive. iX Leadership is that critical next approach. Because without our people, we are nothing.” 

"We're so excited to share the magic we've created with the world. And that's just what it is, magic. Now that's not a typical ‘business’ word but it's absolutely what every business person thinks they need when it comes to curating workplace culture," added Meg Manke, MSSL, Senior Partner at Rose Group Int’l.
