About the Book

If you're frustrated with your inability to make a difference in yourself or your organization, learn how you can become a powerful agent of change! In this groundbreaking book, James Harlow Brown challenges, inspires, and shows you how to transform your ideas and your organization in ways you never thought possible.

This visionary and motivational guide contains a number of stories that help you rethink your assumptions about life and create change. Dangerous Undertaking examines how out-of-the-box experiences and ideas can redefine your perceptions, and it addresses the most important concepts involved in personal and organizational change, including:

  • Conflict between social roles and personal identity
  • Organizational behavior at the "quantum level" and the deep sources of organizational power
  • Leadership's addiction to power and the recovery process
  • The collision between the rational and spiritual worlds

Perfect for business leaders, executives, change managers, and ordinary working people, Dangerous Undertaking will help you unleash your ability to make a difference in yourself, in your organization, and in the world.
