Zappos is a company that focuses foremost on company culture. By doing so, they believe that things like great customer service and branding will naturally evolve. They're not alone in this thought. The book Tribal Leadership, by Dave Logan, John King, and Halee Fischer-Wright professes that same idea. Tony Hsieh, the CEO at Zappos, believes in the idea so much, that he's offering a free audio version of the book at his company's site. In a press release, he states, "We'd be thrilled if free access to the audio version of Tribal Leadership on our site encourages others within organizations to focus on attaining great cultures as well. Ultimately, everyone benefits from a happier, more energized, more satisfied and more productive workforce." To receive the free audio book version of Tribal Leadership, visit
