“While searching for something that would complement a ‘LUV Relationships’ DVD departure gift which I was leaving behind for our wonderful Employees as I entered a new chapter in my life, I found the perfect additional gift in Nature of Excellence. This simple — but very special — book said in pictures and quotes the words/feelings I couldn’t find to articulate how very special the Culture is at our LUV airline.

While I could not buy the book for 34,000 Employees, I did buy it for our Senior Leaders so that they could utilize it while they were reviewing the DVD with their Employees.”

Colleen Barrett President Emeritus of Southwest Airlines Co.

“The Nature of Excellence contains inspirational and motivational thoughts that anyone can read, learn from, and benefit from. I recommend you give this gift to yourself first, then think of others you believe would relate to this book and buy a few copies for them.”
