This book provides clear, step-by-step techniques and examples to create and sustain a workplace that truly fosters continuous performance improvement. Beginning with the desired end results, the authors introduce their powerful Work/Life Approach paradigm: a complete model for analyzing business problems, identifying performance gaps, determining initiatives, and measuring results.
Building on the field’s most significant works and research, they demonstrate how to apply the Work/Life Approach to address the full spectrum of organizational performance issues, including leadership, time management, communication, problem solving, and change. They show how to integrate the organization’s needs to grow and prosper, with the social, economic, political, and spiritual beliefs and needs of every individual employee, both at work and at home.
