Three Top Effectiveness Behaviors
Since organizations are made up of people, organizational behaviors are informed first by internal behaviors, and then by interpersonal behaviors. One of the most widely read management books focusing on internal behavior, Spencer Johnson's Who Moved My Cheese? outlines the rewards one reaps when willing to move in a new direction. William C. Taylor and Polly G. LaBarre’s Mavericks at Work finds that the best entrepreneurs are mavericks who regularly question and challenge the established order and traditions.
Join our initiative to ensure young people receive three positive messages about diversity for every negative one they hear.
Sustained diversity learning programs can prepare students for living and working in our diverse world.
Our diversity handbook is recommended by the Washington State School Directors' Association, the Kansas Psychological Association, and the Council of Colleges of Arts and Sciences at the The College of William and Mary. More info here.
