News & Opinion: This is Positively MAD

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 6:36 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

I got an email today from the folks at Berrett-Kohler. They are hosting a conference called POSITIVELY M.A.D. : The Berrett-Koehler Conference on Making A Difference. The conference features over 40 of the imprint's authors. It open with a general session by Peter Block on "The Restoration of Community" (Block has written Stewardship, Flawless Consulting, and The Answer To How Is Yes). After that, there are four different tracks you can participate in - Global and National Change, Personal Change, Reinventing Organizations, and New Leadership Skills. Positively M.A.D. takes place in San Francisco on November 6. What really caught my attention is that the early registration fee is only $150. Check it out.
