You are not in charge, and you want to make a difference: that is the dilemma. You may not know who is in charge in todays changing, temporary, and virtual organizations, but you know you are not! You are searching for ways to contribute through the work you do and gain some personal satisfaction in the process. This book can help you do just that. In this new edition of his classic book, Geoff Bellman tells listeners how to make things happen in any organization regardless of their formal position.
Occasionally we participate in a group that inspires us to describe the experience as "powerful" or simply "wow". Why are some teams described in such exceptional terms, while most are not? Bellman and Ryan argue that an extraordinary group emerges when a group experience satisfies two or more core needs that members intuitively bring to any group they join. Based on extensive research, the audiobook presents the Group Needs Model to help anyone nurture extraordinary experiences in their groups.
Although it sometimes seems as if we're merely walking the same path as thousands of people before us, everyone walks it their own unique way. Every person we meet, thing we touch, and situation we encounter bears the mark of our distinctive individual selves. This life-affirming guide is for people who are struggling with their direction in the face of constant changes in the family, society, and workplace. The author offers provocative insights and practical advice to help seekers evaluate who they are, what they're doing, and where they'd like to go.
