Do the people at work drive you crazy?
BY DR. GRANT MULLEN
The Breakthrough Solution
Why are some people so hard to manage and work with? Are human resources the weakest link in the corporate supply chain?
In The Breakthrough Solution, Dr. Grant Mullen takes you on a fascinating, unpredictable and humorous journey of corporate investigation to find out why a cutting edge technology company is failing.
Through the eyes of Bill Spencer, corporate trouble shooter, you will explore the many departments of this company where dysfunctional managers have undermined the productivity and profitability of the organization. You will recognize many people who you have worked with, perhaps even yourself.
After reaching the conclusion that the company canít be salvaged, Spencer meets Peter Wilson, the only Vice President with a profitable division. Through interviews and observation, Spencer uncovers a radically different management style which has unlocked the potential in people and led to soaring productivity. The final report leads to a surprise ending that will encourage even the most frustrated supervisor or employee.
Watch Dr. Mullen's TV interviews.
...a fun read with an important message. Highly recommended.

Dr. Mullen tells the story in a charming, light way. He has a gift for humour.

The Breakthrough Solution presents not only the problem of emotional baggage that most employees bring to the job but it also presents some interesting solutions in dealing with the negative effects of this baggage.
