Can your company manage -- even encourage -- turbulence in ways that actually strengthen its competitive stance? Absolutely. In this work, top organizational psychologist Stanley Gryskiewicz argues that challenges to the status quo can be catalysts for creativity, innovation, and renewal and shows leaders how they can keep their company on the competitive edge by embracing a process he calls Positive Turbulence. Developed through the author's work with many of the world's leading companies over the course of thirty years, Positive Turbulence delivers proven methods for creating an organization that continuously renews itself through the committed pursuit of new ideas, products, and processes.

From the Back Cover:

Operating in a time of rapid and seemingly relentless change, today's healthiest organizations have the ability to continuously renew themselves and thrive in a challenging environment. They are the ones that know how to harness the turbulence all organizations encounter and use it as a catalyst for creativity and innovation. They are the companies that will succeed in the long term. And your company can be among them.

As an expert on corporate change and advisor to leading organizations around the world, author Stanley Gryskiewicz has spent nearly thirty years observing and evaluating a variety of corporate cultures. Those that are most effective, he's found, are invariably those in which creativity and innovation are allowed to flourish. Over the years, Gryskiewicz has witnessed and often helped devise the many strategies and processes companies have employed to deliberately establish energetic, creative cultures. And now he's distilled the most successful of those approaches into a dynamic process of cultural change he calls Positive Turbulence.

Positive Turbulence begins with the recognition that change is inevitable. It then provides ways to keep change manageable and apply it to an organization's strategic advantage. Asserting that creativity need not be random, Gryskiewicz outlines a proactive process for bringing new information into an organization, making sense of it, and translating it into novel ideas that are both useful and actionable. Along the way, he relates specific strategies that individuals, teams, and organizations can use to increase their receptivity to Positive Turbulence and employ it effectively.

The author illustrates his points with a variety of examples from history, from organizations large and small, even from jazz groups. He also provides real-world examples of how Norfolk Southern, Hallmark, and 3M have each used Positive Turbulence to build continuous renewal into their cultures. In short, Gryskiewicz gives you all of the information you need to institute Positive Turbulence at your company-a process that will help ensure its vitality in a hypercompetitive, rapidly changing world.
