"Steve is a real sensei. His presentations captivate students.  His enthusiasm is contagious. When Steve writes about the TPS House it is not just an abstraction.  It is something he lives. He can vividly picture it in every operation.  He can guide the organization through the journey to build a real system. You will enjoy Steve’s stories that will bring the house to life!
