RELEASING TRAPPED MINDS
The Strategic Role of Managers in Improving Productivity in Organizations
by Dr Victor S.L. Tan
Ceo of KL Strategic Change Consulting
The greatest waste in human resource is the trapped minds in organisations. A trapped mind is unable to adapt, change and grow. It stifles the capability and resourcefulness of a person. It is neither imaginative nor creative. It is retrogressive, not progressive. It cannot innovate and come up with new solutions. Releasing Trapped Minds is certainly imperative for leaders and executives who want their organisations to be progressive and successful. This book provides a detailed guide on how to get the best out of people and how to release trapped minds to improve the productivity and profitability of organisations.
The book explains in detail:
How to open minds and win commitment
How to overcome adversity
How to create opportunities
How to motivate people
How to lead with excellence
