"Mr. Stambouli has managed to speak to both the strategic and the human sides of organizations, which I liken to uniting the right and left hemispheres of the brain. Both the content and the delivery style allowed me to understand more than I have from other authors in this field. His chapters on listening literally changed the direction of my doctoral research, which is in listening. I realized that I no longer needed to write the book I thought I was going to write -- Stambouli does it better than I ever could have. I highly recommend this book for its readability and its straightforwardness, qualities I really appreciate from any author." - Christopher Jones


"I found this book to be unique and remarkable. I am a program manager and still found surprising benefit learning from it. In the end, this is a book on leadership, building trusted relationships and effective communication.  

Perhaps you will find your golden nugget in any of the “seven key practices” that the book offers. Mine was #4: Develop a keen capacity to perceive and manage your own and others’ moods and emotions. This is the first time I hear anyone who is not HR (and even that is questionable) speak of moods and emotions in the workplace. Fresh!  

We are all living in the same turbulent times, regardless of our profession. I believe anyone holding a leadership job, or leading others socially or running a business stands to benefit from this book." - Amazon Review by Bluemoon


"The Ukemi Way will give project managers essential new skills for all who have come to see that it is not more technical tools that will radically improve project outcomes.
