Front Cover

Are “knowledge-work,” “empowerment strategies,” and “continuous improvement” making your head spin? Have you heard “let’s get everybody on the same page” just one time too many? Was the latest management training just another dose of warmed-over dogma? Then it’s time to start kicking up some dust and making a difference. In All Hat and No Cattle , maverick consultant and writer, Chris Turner, serves as our guide, and with a healthy dose of Texas humor and the wisdom gained from experience on the front lines, she exposes much of what passes for management wisdom as baloney and offers alternative ways of thinking about organizations and the people who bring them to life. Not your father’s management textbook, All Hat and No Cattle shows how real growth, vitality, and change result when all of us take responsibility for doing things in new ways—ways that create the future now. All Hat and No Cattle is chock full of ideas guaranteed to help frazzled folks shake up the workplace.
