Don's "best practices" essay focused on how to implement effective leadership development. The editors of this widely praised landmark work named Don's chapter as one of the best in the 2,000+ page work. His Special Report, Strategy: Simplified and Clarified, was an Amazon.com editor's pick and has been rated five-stars by Amazon.com readers.

  • With Integrity - Participants leave with a clear framework for making ethical decisions so they can act in accord with principled values - even in the face of significant pressure and great temptations.

This is a useful presentation for organizations in the throes of a stressful Radical Change (shrinkage, growth, merger).

Useful for any organization--growing or shrinking--that knows its success truly is dependent on its human capital.
