Your roadmap to becoming the CEO of your own job and a leader for organizational change. Argues that the responsibility for renewing the vital bond of trust and commitment is far too important a task to be left to senior management, and shows how you can secure your own future--and the future of your organization--by responding actively, creatively, and effectively to the new demands of the organization in flux. Demonstrates why now--more than ever--we must take responsibility for becoming leaders of change rather than waiting for our organizations to take the first step.

Dennis T. Jaffe, Cynthia D. Scott, and Glenn R. Tobe draw on their extensive consulting experience with corporate executives and managers of such leading organizations as IBM, Pacific Bell, General Mills, The Gap, National Semiconductor, and Estee Lauder to demonstrate how to: * create a new employee empowerment contract * define the values and vision that will guide you to a new sense of mastery in life and work * develop a committed, productive workforce across the organization * invest in the future by designing work groups and systems that develop the new skills and capabilities required in yourself, in others, and in the organization.
