News & Opinion: Are Prisons Smarter Than Your Company?
Last week, a very large Department of Corrections facility on the West coast purchased bulk copies of the book The Offsite by Robert Thompson. This parable addresses the leadership challenge, and what a challenge this must be at such an organization. However, sharing a vision, encouraging that in others, and enabling them to accomplish goals, is something we all share. Each company has differing levels of workplace challenges, and I thought it was enlightening to find this particular customer focused on making a positive change in their organization. Though I'm partial to parables, this book is a great tool to engage any group.
