Counter Explore the spiritual side of business The best-selling author of Healing the Wounds writes another prescription for our transition-induced ailments. Here he addresses the self-defeating ways people and organizations react to rapid, seemingly relentless change, and advocates a steady diet of learning as the surest way to break free. Associating various responses to change with four character types -- The Overwhelmed, The Entrenched, The BSers, and The Learners -- the author holds up The Learners as the attainable ideal...and shows how to help those in the other categories pursue the learning path. The ultimate goal: to facilitate transition to a more flexible, self-directed workplace.
