Join the conversation as we discuss Dr. Robert Kegan and Dr. Lisa Lahey's, "An Everyone Culture: Becoming a Deliberately Developmental Organization." This book club will be led by ODN of New York member, Kate Gerasimova.
About the book
“A Radical New Model for Unleashing Your Company's Potential. In most organizations nearly everyone is doing a second job no one is paying them for--namely, covering their weaknesses, trying to look their best, and managing other people's impressions of them. There may be no greater waste of a company's resources. The ultimate cost: neither the organization nor its people are able to realize their full potential. What if a company did everything in its power to create a culture in which everyone--not just select "high potentials"--could overcome their own internal barriers to change and use errors and vulnerabilities as prime opportunities for personal and company growth?”
