Restore Creativity and Trust to Your Workplace
Much has changed since Driving Fear Out of the Workplace first madethe undiscussable discussable back in 1991. Advances in technology, new employee/employer relations, and the corporate push to optimizeintellectual capital have introduced a host of new workplaceanxieties that, left unaddressed, can seriously inhibit individualperformance and cripple a company's ability to compete. Which iswhy, in this revised edition, authors Ryan and Oestreich revisittheir original, best-selling work to confront the fears thatpermeate today's organizations--so that they can become thehigh-trust, high-performance organizations of tomorrow. Thisinsightful book digs deeply into the root causes of fear and thepervasive 'flu of mistrust' that weakens motivation andcommitment.
--Terrence E. Deal and M. K. Key, authors of Corporate Celebration: Play, Purpose, and Passion at Work
