Summary: Guest: Steve Goldstein author of "Why Are There Snowblowers in Miami?" Transform Your Business Using the Five Principles of Engagement. As a senior executive for a major department store chain, Steve Goldstein was shocked to find snowblowers for sale at the company’s Miami store. When Goldstein asked a salesman on the floor how long this had been going on he replied, “I’ve been here for 30 years and we’ve been getting them since I’ve been here.” For Goldstein, this one snowblower experience crystallizes all the dysfunction he has seen in business over the course of his career, and it eventually became the inspiration for writing this book. Steven D. Goldstein helps improve companies’ performance through renewed engagement and laser-like focus. He has over thirty-five years of experience working as an operating executive at both global Fortune 500 corporations (including as Chairman and CEO of American Express Bank), midsize companies, as well as advising private equity firms with their portfolio companies.
