Dr. Gregerman takes us well beyond the box by getting his readers to think well beyond their current worlds. By focusing on what makes great organizations truly exceptional, without regard to industry, he challenges us to think in truly creative ways about our own. Surrounded by Geniuses is an unusual combination of being both an easy read and quite intellectually stimulating.

Surrounded by Geniuses / Review

Many books on business improvement are boring in part or sum. I was never bored by this one. Dr. Gregerman's style is relaxed,easy,entertaining and humorous. Maybe brilliance would have been a better title than genius, but if one does not get caught up in that, the simple truth is that nothing is new under the sun, and we need only open our ears, eyes and imaginations to create a more succesful business enterprise. The examples were fascinating. I highly recommend this one for business leaders with a passion for creativity and tranformation.

Best business book I ever read!

Thank you Dr. Gregerman! After reading this book, I have a whole new way of looking at my business that I believe will help my customers (and me) become successful! A great read that's quick, easy to understand and insightful.

Thanks to Dr. Gregerman I can now spot the geniuses in my everyday life :)

Lessons from everyday life - at a hotel, on a TV show, in the history of athletic competition - helped me think in an entirely new way about what matters to my customers. Really focusing on what they care about (like thinking about swimming fast) versus how it has always been done (breast stroke), applying new ideas and processes (like swimming freestyle) can really change the game. This book helped me take a fresh look at some long-term relationships in a different way.

Unlocking Everyday Genius

I just finished reading Alan Gregerman's new book, Surrounded by Geniuses. I'm an Alan Gregerman fan! In this refreshing book, he urges us to rediscover how powerful curiosity can be and to turn it into a real competitive advantage. Remember field trips -- the joy of leaving school for a day long adventure. Alan Gregerman recommends field trips to improve our organizations and the customer value we deliver. Not brainstorming where we sit around a table and suggest incremental improvements based on our common experience at work. Not benchmarking against the best in our own industry. No, Alan Gregerman is recommending that we unlock the everyday genius in each of us by changing the context of our exploration. As he puts it, we can find "the inspiration to do remarkable things everywhere." How often do you read a business book with chapters on Spider-Man and Seinfeld? Enjoy the trip! You'll have a good time reading and you will be surprised at your new insights. Are you surrounded by geniuses?
