Can we become change-makers and contributors within the narrow boundaries in which we live? Is there a way to expand our contribution without changing our workplace or our roles? This Little Book offers a new way to think about this question.
Often we find ourselves driven by a mix of several motives leading us to multiple and often contradictory criteria in decision making. This Little Book offers a framework to organize and categorize our motives.
