This is the eBook version of the printed book. If the print book includes a CD-ROM, this content is not included within the eBook version. Discover why conventional definitions of success can poison you and learn the three elements of real success that are & ldquo;built to last & rdquo;! The standard descriptions of success must have been written for budding sociopaths. Nowhere do you find any reference to finding meaning, fulfillment, happiness, and lasting relationships. No mention of feeling fully alive while engaged and connected with a calling that matters to you. No thoughts about creating a legacy of service ... The question is: why do we tolerate those definitions?

Built to change : how to achieve sustained organizational effectiveness by Edward E Lawler( Book )

9 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this groundbreaking book, organizational effectiveness experts Edward Lawler and Christopher Worley show how organizations can be "built to change" so they can last and succeed in today's global economy. Instead of striving to create a highly reliable Swiss watch that consistently produces the same behavior, they argue organizations need to be designed in ways that stimulate and facilitate change. Built to Change focuses on identifying practices and designs that organizations can adopt so that they are able to change. As Lawler and Worley point out, organizations that foster continuous change -Are closely connected to their environments -Reward experimentation -Learn about new practices and technologies -Commit to continuously improving performance -Seek temporary competitive advantages
