Book News: October 13th, 2009

By Kenneth Cloke and Joan Goldsmith

The authors draw on more than thirty years of practical experience with hundreds of organizations from companies to government agencies and schools. They reveal new ways of giving and receiving feedback that maximize personal and organizational change and foster lifelong learning.

They show how organizations can develop the systems, processes, techniques, and relationships that affirm, rather than undermine, the intelligence and humanity of their employees. This important resource is filled with the necessary tools, interventions, and strategies managers can use to encourage their employees to speak, hear, absorb, and use the information they need to improve the way they work.
