This review is from: The Extra Mile: How to Engage Your People to Win (Hardcover)
An associate recommended "The Extra Mile" to me and it is excellent.
I have spent my career helping organisations to implement change and Macleod and Brady have managed to bring a fresh perspective to the crowded shelves of Organisational Development books. What's so good about this book is that the authors don't dress anything up, they just tell you what you need to think about and even provide you with a series of handy lists of what to do next as you work through the processes. The quotes from the senior executives and business leaders they interviewed whilst conducting their research are also compelling.
Everyone has an opinion on what creates culture within an organisation, but very few people have done the legwork to explain how it can be changed on purpose. By focusing on the twin forces of Engagement and Alignment, the authors have made a significant contribution to the thinking and made it all so easy to understand and develop.
I am recommending this book to all of my colleagues and associates involved in orchestrating change in their organisations. Invaluable!
