Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I surprising have found that 'The Value-Added Employee' book has many roles in our organization. First, we use the three competency areas (people, business and self-management) to structure our managers' and employees' professional development. The model and the competencies give the managers and employees a common language to formulate development plans. Second, we give managers a copy of the book to help themselves and their employees understand all the aspects of work competencies and professional development. They both learn together and have a quick reference guide. Then, we also use the book as a 'bible' when we are conducting career planning sessions with employees. In addition, I feel the book can be used as individual self-help guide to career planning. This is definitely one of my favorite tools I use in my organization development role here at Rexall Sundown." - Carlin Murray, Manager, Corporate Learning & Development, Rexall Sundown, Inc., Boca Raton, FL
