Reviews and Endorsements

'Just occasionally, a book stuns you with its freshness and wisdom. Olympus Inc. is the best thing on corporate culture I've read. Go get it.'
- Guy Claxton, University of Bristol, author of The Wayward Mind

'Excellent... scholarly... well-researched... [The authors] analyze organizations as self-organizing, living systems filled
with deep archetypal patterns... Their creative approach provides richness and colour to our insights about complexities of organizational culture.'
- Richard N. Knowles, author of The Leadership Dance: Pathways to Extraordinary Organizational Effectiveness

'...an impressive case for redefining the role of executive, consultants and change agents in organizational transformation. The book goes from "soup to nuts" in its deep exploration of culture and Greco-Roman mythology, to real hands-on assessment tools and facilitation strategies. A wonderful and valued addition to the practitioner's tool bag.'
- Steve Zuiback, International Management Consultant, President of Synectics: Creative Management Strategies

'This book is a treat for cognitive-oriented readers. The bibliography serves as a compendium in the field. I personally await a whole book on just the material in the appendix.'
- Michael Grinder, International Management Consultant, author of Patterns of Permission: The Science of Group Dynamics

'...extraordinary; as remarkable for its wisdom and practicality as for the depth and breadth of its scholarship... Neville and Dalmau throw light into the dark places of organizations - revealing why things are the way they are... Invaluable, "divinely inspired" guidance for those seriously interested in the dynamics of organizations life and change.'
- Peter Waterhouse, Managing Director, Workplace Learning Initiatives

'Bernie Neville and Tim Dalmau are the right people to introduce you to archetypes. In addition they have the experience to explain the application of the archetypes for organizational diagnosis and interventions. As a bonus you also learn about their DNAI, the Dalmau-Neville Archetypology Indicator, and how it might be used.'
- Bob Dick, Southern Cross University, author of Jung for Sceptics
