Northeast Delta Dental CEO (and GSQC Chair!)Tom Raffio and long-time colleague (and former GSQC Board Member!) Barbara McLaughlin were in the process of writing a book to share the fundamental principles of Northeast Delta Dental’s sustained success and vitality when Tom heard NBA Hall of Famer and legendary Boston Celtic Dave “Big Red” Cowens speak at a conference. He realized that Dave’s key points were in alignment with the book’s themes and a collaboration was formed.

Each of the 11 Chapters in the book highlight a key principle of leadership based Tom’s experience and the wisdom of noted management gurus. Chapters begin with a story from Dave’s career that reflects the principal and end with a “Big Red Factor” that summarizes the keys to success detailed in the chapter. The results is succinct, practical, and entertaining insight into the fundamentals of a high performing organization – fundamentals that apply in sports as well as businesses of all types and sizes.
