Describe your needs.
"As a student of Organizational Behavior and Industrial Psychology and as a business professional for over 30 years, I found this book to be at the 'cutting edge' of what it takes to empower a successful organization in today's uncertain climate. This book offers practical ideas on how to evaluate your organization and the people in it and then offers 'prescriptions' for how to re-set your sails for success. It will challenge the reader to dismiss the 'That's the way we always did it' attitude and seek pro-active approaches toward goal achievement with a 'team' spirit."
