Praise for Illuminate

“Whether it is to well-dressed executives or begrimed young soldiers, there is a vast difference between simply transmitting information and effectively communicating it. Illuminate is a tremendous guide for anyone who must educate, motivate or inspire – and that’s just about all of us”

General Stanley McChrystal, author of Team of Teams and co-founder of McChrystal Group

Susan Cain, author of Quiet and co-founder of Quiet Revolution

“Duarte and Sanchez give us the unique concept that our company’s change and growth have the structure of epic drama; we make our stories through working out our difficulties. They give an even deeper insight that we must begin our next journey before the current one ends. Most people misunderstand the role of story in our lives, but by understanding it, we can use it as a metaphor for leading”

Ed Catmull, president of Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios, and author of Creativity, Inc.
