Positively Mad - Making a Difference in Your Organisations, Communities and the World by Bill Treasurer

Book Description

M. A. D. stands for Making A Difference; Positively M. A. D. shows how. This uplifting collection promoting organizational activism addresses the disenchantment felt by many who work in large organizations. Featuring "can do" vignettes by more than 50 renowned writers such as Beverly Kaye, Chip Bell, Richard Lieder, and Leslie Yerkes, the collection recounts "mad" stories about people and actions that transcend the ordinary. Here are stories, advice, and examples designed to provoke individual change in all types of organizations and, by extension, in communities, and the world at large. Individual chapters cover such topics as Having a Higher Purpose ("having a higher purpose helps the person who is M. A. D. maintain their conviction and focus during challenging times") and "Standing Up to Authority" ("people who are M. A. D. are self-assured enough, and have enough conviction, to stand up [and speak up] to authority"). This book shows that getting M. A. D. doesn't mean getting angry, or getting even - it means using personal power to effect larger change.
