About the Book

Why are "10,10,10" and "The Secret" only pieces of the puzzle? Why have Kirstie and Oprah struggled with weight loss? Look at the whole puzzle and find the answers to these questions and more. There is a relationship between personality and performance for the individual as well as for an organization. Personality is the sum of all beliefs that an individual holds about themselves and manifest in their performance. The beliefs that people hold about themselves determine where those people are and why, just as the beliefs that an organization holds about their organizational community determine how that organization performs and why. If we understand the elements of personality, or organizational behavior, we can take control of those elements and change the personality and/or the organization. This book will introduce you to those elements and a system that combines them so that the user can intentionally cause change in the direction that they choose. The system illuminated in these pages will not only apply to personal and organizational change, but may be applied to environmental changes as well.
