If more organizations operated using this approach, not only would productivity improve, but more importantly, employees would look forward to going to and being at work! The method is applicable to all areas of human interaction and all aspects of life.

Format: Paperback
It was a book about an interesting management style, but from my perspective it was difficult to understand how to make it work. It would have been nice if the author had told a story showing how the management style was used.
