Forbes Article

I am grateful to Dr. Rodger Duncan for the wonderful write-up he gave my book, “The Positive Organization” in Forbes yesterday.

The article is called:  “Is Your Work Headed Down a Negative Path?  Why Mental Maps Matter.”  Here is Dr. Duncan’s kind intro:

“Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones,” said the great philosopher Willie Nelson, “you’ll start having positive results.”

Hardly anyone argues against being positive. But much of the rah rah talk out there comes across as intellectual pablum.

Not so with the vitamin-enriched insights of Robert E. Quinn in his book The Positive Organization: Breaking Free from Conventional Cultures, Constraints, and Beliefs.

Where many writers in the business genre are adept at articulating worthy aspirations about being positive at work, Quinn focuses on translating the aspirations into specific and practical organizational actions. With compelling case studies from pathbreaking companies where he’s consulted, he provides real world guidance in the “how to.”

If you’re a leader in any kind of organization, or even if you’re still learning how to be an effective follower, Bob Quinn’s advice can help you and your colleagues flourish in an atmosphere of unified purpose.”

I hope you find some helpful insights in the article.  I highly recommend the wonderful column written by Dr. Dean on leadership issues that make or break your workplace experience.

  1. Congrats on the great press…Well deserved! There are too many “rah rah” books and not enough “how to” books. Glad that The Positive Organization is being recognized for being a great example of the latter and a great resource for leaders and change agents.
