What You Do Is Who You Are

Ben Horowitz

Overview

What makes a company successful is often debated. Some would say it's the quality of their product, or the vision of their leaders. But ultimately, a company is nothing without its employees, and the company culture is what makes or breaks this relationship.

Ben Horowitz is a blogger, an award-winning author, and a vastly successful venture capitalist. In this book, Horowitz shares his wealth of knowledge regarding the business world to help you move your company's culture in a positive direction.

What You Do Is What You Are is both a practical and philosophical analysis of how culture is created and maintained by successful leaders throughout history. By applying these culture crafting techniques to the business world, we can identify how to avoid stagnation and build a culture that encourages greatness.

"Culture is not like a mission statement; you can't just set it up and have it last forever… If you see something off-culture and ignore it, you've created a new culture."
