Book Excerpt

The most obvious part of the corporate fusion is the people who operate the business. But what is not so obvious is that the vast potential of the employees is not used in the business. This is the hidden unused giant. Each employee contributes far less than what he or she is capable of adding to the business. The history of industrial progress, and the mindset of labor and management provide fertile soil for less than full effort by employees. There is thus an untapped source of people power available for a new level of excellent corporate performance. However, this will only occur when there is new enlightened thinking by the respective participants. While thousands of transactions and activities are taking place on a continuous basis, there has to be leadership that directs the overall operations, and provide an environment that inspires and motivates. Every corporate business provides some or all of these elements discussed in this book. What the author encourages is that each corporate executive examine his or her area of responsibility, and determine how his or her area could be improved by applying the strategies discussed in this presentation
