The Blueprint: Strategies for Building a Culture of Excellence
Tired of dry, theory-only reading you cant connect to Real Life? If so, youve picked up the right book! Dr. Rozs years of research and experience have equipped her to share with you a blueprint that will guide you in leading the process of constructing or redeveloping, a Culture of Excellence within your organization. Information and experiences shared, while based at a non-profit organization, are relevant for any industry. This book is written in an exciting, engaging manner, using acronyms, alliterations, metaphors, real life and workplace examples as well as hands-on activities that will catch your attention, stick in your mind, and ensure that you capture pertinent, usable information. Dr. Roz shares some power tools needed for positive organizational transformation, including Collaborative Leadership, Learning Organization Theory and -- her personal favorite -- Appreciative Inquiry. These change-management tools have been studied and written about, but not so much in the nonprofit/social context where they can have life-changing impact on organizations and on the people they serve and empower. Through defining these tools and demonstrating their impact, this book will prepare you and your organization to attain, maintain and sustain A Culture of Excellence. So, open this book and open yourself to an excellent journey ahead. Now lets build!
