Overview

From Dagwood to Dilbert, the past fifty years haven't seen much evolution in our attitudes toward work. Too many of us still believe that our work selves and our real selves, our professional and personal lives, are separate entities. This book is about how that concept is slowly, but surely, changing. It is about why it is changing. And, most important, it is about why it must change. C. Michael Thompson takes a compelling look at the connection between our inner lives and our work lives and shows how the development of the individual spirit can trigger not just personal fulfillment, but much-needed organizational change.

This was required reading for a course I'm taking and I could have done without this particular book. It was very difficult to get accustomed to the writing style of the author. The majority of the information was entirely to repetitive and the most significant information was grouped in one section at the end. If your looking for a good read try Built to Serve by Dan Sanders.
