Evaluation comments from recent leadership retreat:
Organizing for Good describes what it takes to achieve and sustain excellence. It is based on thirty years work with Westrend Group clients.
This was the first book Dan Wilford and I wrote on trust. It describes 'seven elements of trust' and what it takes to build trust in organizations.
