Praise for Winning Now, Winning Later
"Former Honeywell CEO David M. Cote delivers one of the best guides ever on how to lead a company."
– Fortune Magazine
"David Cote turned a failing company into a global juggernaut by transforming the culture at Honeywell, and challenging his people to think and operate differently and, in his words, ‘stay hungry.’ David’s story is both inspirational and highly instructive, and his perspective and the lessons he imparts in Winning Now, Winning Later are relevant not just in business, but in any scenario where one wants to enact meaningful change and achieve great success."
– Robert Iger, Former Chairman and CEO, The Walt Disney Company, #1 New York Times bestselling author
"As a CEO who managed for the long term with a keen eye to the short term, I found that I had to create my own playbook as I went along. How I wish David Cote’s excellent book had been available to me then. Life would have been so much easier! Thanks, David. Many leaders will benefit from this ‘how to.’”
- Indra K. Nooyi, Former Chairman, PepsiCo, Inc.

Executive Chairman of Vertiv Holdings Company and former CEO of Honeywell
When David M. Cote became CEO of Honeywell in 2002, the company was a “train wreck.” But by pursuing both short and long-term results under Cote’s leadership over 16 years, Honeywell’s market cap grew from $20 to $120 billion, delivering returns of 800 percent and beating the S&P by nearly two and a half times. In Winning Now, Winning Later, Cote boils his approach down to three guiding principles and ten key strategic and operational practices essential for every business leader.
