In my work as an organization development consultant and leadership coach, I support organizations as they grapple with the reality that change is mandatory, but growth is optional. Always welcome are ideas for infusing a growth and "what's the opportunity here" mentality into the uncertain and often frightening world of organizational and personal change.
And, when it comes down to it, there is no greater opportunity than more fully being in the moments we live, having more engaged conversations, and really seeing the outstanding performance--and genius--that surrounds us. After all, there is never nothing going on out there. We just need more gentle pushes, like Gregerman's book, to help us remember that and point the way to better seeing.
But what I liked most about this book is that Dr. Gregerman is action oriented. Contrary to many other books that wow you then leave you dreaming, he provides a section at the end of each chapter about where to go from here, and how to conduct your own research.
Thanks, Dr. Gregerman! Great job!
