Front Cover
Wiley, Sep 20, 1996 - Business & Economics - 288 pages
Explore the spiritual side of business The best–selling author of Healing the Wounds writes another prescription for our transition–induced ailments. Here he addresses the self–defeating ways people and organizations react to rapid, seemingly relentless change, and advocates a steady diet of learning as the surest way to break free. Associating various responses to change with four character types –– The Overwhelmed, The Entrenched, The BSers, and The Learners –– the author holds up The Learners as the attainable ideal...and shows how to help those in the other categories pursue the learning path. The ultimate goal: to facilitate transition to a more flexible, self–directed workplace.
