Summary

POSITIVELY M.A.D. is a compelling and moving guide to personal empowerment. Written by more than 50 of Berrett- Koehlers renowned authors-including such bestselling writers as Geoffrey Bellman, Richard Leider, Chip Bell, Leslie Yerkes, BJ Hately, Beverly Kaye, and Marvin Weisbord-it offers stories, advice and examples that will inspire others to take action and make a difference in the organizations they serve. The MAD stories in the book are designed to help people resolve the disenchantment many feel about the corporate world right now. They are engaging, optimistic, "can do" vignettes that will inspire readers to take action to make a difference themselves.
