The Art of Significance
Dan Clark CSP, CSPA
Internationally-known author, consultant, and award-winning athlete Dan Clark is a primary contributing author to the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, and the author of 20 of his own best-selling books, including Puppies For Sale, which was made into a film at Paramount Studios starring Jack Lemmon. As a master storyteller, Dan has been published in more than 40 million books, in 40 languages worldwide, has appeared on more than 500 television and radio programs including Oprah and Glenn Beck, and was featured as the cover story in Millionaire Magazine.
Dan's new book, The Art of Significance is the culmination of a 20-year research project that documents why great is not good enough; why best is only relevant depending on what you compare it against; and why so many successful companies have collapsed. Clearly the common denominator is that too many leaders and managers believe they are thinking and changing, when in reality they are merely rearranging their opinions and prejudices, which only perpetuates their current faddish system of success.
