Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I found this book to be very interesting. It is exactly what the title states and that means it is not for the abject beginner. There are seven sections which include 37 different short papers or essays. What is interesting is that in this, the third edition, the authors have included some web content that you have to download. For example I found that the articles on "Women Succeeding Globally", and"Why 360s Do not Work and How They Can" particularly interesting. And to conclude any time that I have an opportunity to read essays/ articles by Edgar H. Schein I feel enriched.

This is a must read. The style of the book with the case studies ensuring the ready not only knows and understands the content, but sees how it can be applied across sectors, if, for me the most useful element. And any reference to using 360 feedback effectively is always a good read! Dr Clare Beckett-McInroy EdD CPCC PCC MAC

This is a decent read, but doesn't necessarily match up with Goldsmith's other works.
