Patwell draws on extensive research to elucidate her “Use-of-Self” philosophy, which positions the individual as the linchpin for meaningful change. While her style is dry and full of jargon, she proves supremely knowledgeable. Her approach will resonate with leaders adapting to new workplace challenges.
