By taking a 360-degree point of view, the book reveals how each stakeholder views the elements of people management, what they need from each element, and what confusion and conflicts arise among the stakeholders, limiting people’s potential.

The idea of unleashing people’s potential by giving them good input and stretching them to new levels can be very heady stuff. When you experience, as I have, the collective impact of everyone in an organization performing at the highest level and truly working TOGETHER, you are amazed at what can happen when the constraints that organizations put on their own people are removed. The results are extraordinary.Kim Janson
