Harvard faculty members Robert Kegan and Lisa Laskow Lahey offer an insightful, readable guide to a revolutionary approach to combined business and human development. They describe “deliberately developmental organizations” (DDOs) – firms that merge revenue building with helping the people in their workforce grow as human beings. The authors provide three detailed cases studies illustrating the DDO path of courageous self-development leading to a fine combination of employee satisfaction and business success. getAbstract recommends their innovative, accessible insights and techniques to entrepreneurs, senior leaders, heads of HR, and managers at businesses of any size, as well as to anyone seeking to transcend self-imposed limits.
In this book, you will learn
- What a “deliberately developmental organization” (DDO) does,
- How to turn your company into a DDO and
- How to develop yourself independently.
