The Foundation First™ Approach to Sustainable Success

What distinguishes great companies and high achievers from those who merely possess talent? The Bamboo Principle answers this question with details of the “core behaviors” behind achievement, while debunking many myths surrounding success. Using bamboo as the metaphor for Strength, Versatility, and Contribution—The Bamboo Principle shares the “7 Roots” great companies and high achievers share. Are they overnight successes, or was it their “foundation first” philosophy that enabled sustainable success?

The Bamboo Principle details the process that topples misleading notions of quick hits and sudden success, and replaces them with a proven game plan that pays faster dividends.

  • Intention is not a strategy
  • Spontaneity has its time and place
  • There is power in panic
