the Unwritten Rules - Summary
We are creatures of habit. We
think in patterns and act in patterns. These patterns are often defined by the
rules that we live by. All of us know the rules, but it is the unwritten rules
that really define how we live. Is it “ok” to be late for a meeting? Is the

every activity has unwritten rules. Our passion is to help organizations and
individuals find patterns for success that allow them to maximize their levels
