How can we foster the development of initiatives? How can enterprises such as community projects, schools, farms, and businesses be well founded? How can we work as equals, sharing responsibilities, encouraging one another in our development, and offering a high-quality product or service?

Vision in Action is a workbook for those involved in social creation―in collaborative actions that can influence the social environment in which we live and where our ideas and actions can matter.

This is a user-friendly, hands-on guide for developing healthy small organizations―ones with soul and spirit.

Chapters:

  • The Human Being and Organizational Life
  • The Conscious Development of Initiatives
  • Starting Initiatives
  • Getting Going: The Growing Pains and Childhood Diseases of Initiatives
  • Ways of Working together in the Developing Organization
  • Re-creating the Organization: Vision, Mission, and Long-Range Planning

"A well-written exposition of organizational development and the problems that groups tend to encounter as they progress. I highly recommend it to anyone in the field." ―Caroline Estes, cofounder of Alpha Farm and master facilitator

"This well thought-out book breathes life into the worn-out concept of vision. One finds in it an enlivening imagination of how to develop new initiatives. Like all worthwhile advice, it is based on hard-won life experience. Work with this book and you will find heal help in developing small organizations." ―Robert Michael Burnside, Director, Organizational Development Products, Center for Creative Leadership

Book Description FLORIS BOOKS, United Kingdom, 1996. Paperback. Condition: New. 2nd Rev ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This is the seminal work in which Solovyov developed his religious philosophy. In it he undertakes a critique of positivism by which he understands the entire philosophy of western rationalism which he sees as setting up a conflict between reason and faith, and reason and nature. In the modern period he finds abundant evidence for reason s war against nature in western philosophy from Descartes to Hegel. Positivism , the leading philosophy in his time, Solovyov also finds repungant. In its place, he proposes his great theme of total unity. Seller Inventory # APC9780940262744
