Commitment

I was very taken by the book 'The Power of Strategic Commitment' written by Josh Leibner, Gerson Mader, and Alan Weiss.
I wanted my team to learn about it so I put this presentation together using some of the ideas from the book.
The live presentation has more content in terms of anecdotes etc., that haven't been captured - but the essence is here.
