Book Synopsis

How transformational leaders take what's broken and make it better.

At the helm of a broken company, with no operating capital or viable product offering, Patrick Colletti set out to rebuild an organization with loads of debt and no clear product or market presence. Now, over two decades later, that broken company is a "billion-dollar company with heart," reuniting caregivers with their calling(TM), who bring measurable healing to the hurt, wounded, and at-risk.

In Refounder: How Transformational Leaders Take What's Broken and Make it Better, you'll see how a small but committed group of visionaries took a broken health technology startup and created a thriving, humanity-enriching company. You'll discover the Refounder's approach and how their team applied it to every decision they made, even if sometimes unwittingly. You'll also meet industry leaders who operate with a Refounder's mentality, learning from their expertise in the fields of business, innovation, medicine, education, and personal development.

Are you ready to be a Refounder? Whether you're a C-suite executive hoping to change a struggling business, a middle manager tasked with revitalizing a dysfunctional team, or a community organizer attempting to renew the city block, Refounder is an invitation. Learn from Colletti and this collection of refounding experts, then, take what's broken and make it better.

Review Quotes

"The best advisers tell us not what we want to hear but what we need to hear - and they do it in a way we can hear and get moving on. When things have gone sour for you, when that brilliant idea implodes, when that soaring project or exciting start-up collapses, this book gives you one of those advisers, Patrick Colletti, at your fingertips. You will find his guidance as energizing as it is practical, emerging from his own firsthand experience and the inspiring stories of others who have built successes from ashes. Once you read the first few pages, you won't put Colletti's book down - and better yet, you'll have the light you need to navigate the path forward.
