Author Information
"Inspiring, coaxing, guiding, and mentoring, Cloke and Goldsmith take us through a systemic approach of waking up organizations and employees. This is a book for everyone, guiding us to what good management and worker goals should be and can be when they are one. By stressing equally the goals of management and the needs of employees, they have found the road to long-term productivity." —Piedad Robertson, president, Santa Monica College, and former Secretary of Education, Commonwealth of Massachusetts

"This book evokes the "aha" phenomenon. You will recognize immediately the somnolent state of many workers whom Cloke and Goldsmith describe. In a wonderfully written book, these incredibly wise and humane organizational experts approach the problem of workers' apathy with the keen eye of the clinician, the clear-mindedness of the theoretician, and the empathic heart of the gifted therapist. The Art of Waking People Up is a real gem!" —Jean Lipman-Blumen, Thornton F. Bradshaw Professor of Public Policy and Organizational Behavior, Peter F. Drucker Graduate School of Management, Claremont Graduate University; author, Connective Leadership: Managing in a Changing World

"Cloke and Goldsmith bring a basic tenet of civics to business organizations: personal responsibility and involvement. Their notion of a democratic corporation is both inspired and critically necessary. The principles of leadership and citizenship replace hierarchical management doctrine, establishing a collaborative process that promotes both organizational and personal growth." —Terry Fitzpatrick, senior vice president, business operations, Sesame Workshop

"A greatly needed and practical wake-up call to companies and individuals for transforming suffocating environments into dynamic, democratic, and personally fulfilling organizations." —James E. Austin, McLean Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School
