5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Swami Asokananda on February 22, 2010
Format: Paperback
This "little book" may be small, but it's potent. I read it on an airplane trip and made good use of it a few days later at a meeting about how to build and support our global organization. The authors really distilled the challenges organizations face into a nutshell. And the real life examples from their own leadership roles and consulting work were especially useful.

One of the authors, Dave Brubaker, did consulting work for our organization about a year ago. He served us very capably and, maybe most important,modeled how skillful and aware human beings deal with conflict.
