PARTICIPANT TESTIMONIAL
As the board’s responsibility and accountability evolve, shareholders are becoming more vocal and more activist. So it’s a very dynamic situation now. Coming here and learning to understand these issues and the effective role of the board was very valuable. If I’m facing a particular challenge, I often go back to my notes or communicate with participants I met at the program.” Read more testimonials.

PUBLICATION SPOTLIGHT
Stop Spending, Start Managing
An Everyone Culture:
Becoming a Deliberately Developmental Organization
In most organizations nearly everyone is doing a second job no one is paying them for—namely, covering their weaknesses, trying to look their best, and managing other people’s impressions of them. There may be no greater waste of a company’s resources. The ultimate cost: neither the organization nor its people are able to realize their full potential. In An Everyone Culture, the authors explain the idea of a Deliberately Developmental Organization (DDO), which is based around the simple but radical conviction that organizations will best prosper when they are more deeply aligned with people’s strongest motive, which is to grow. This book reveals the design principles, concrete practices, and underlying science at the heart of DDOs—from their disciplined approach to giving feedback, to how they use meetings, to the distinctive way that managers and leaders define their roles.
