Dream Makers : Putting Vision and Values to Work
by Michele Hunt

Michele Hunt was the featured keynote speaker on the last day of this year's American Society for Training and Development's (ASTD) International Conference in Orlando. She presented her ideas from her latest book that really kept people on the edge of their seats. Here is an overview of her latest effort.

Dream Makers is about organizational transformation.  Hunt provides a collection of twelve inspirational interviews detailing how organizational change is possible even in the face of resistance, fear, and adversity.

Each "Dream Maker'" tells a personal story of amazing transformation that has taken place in their own lives and/or organization. As each person discusses their struggles, mistakes, joys, surprises, you discover a set of underlying principles that are crucial for all business leaders. These valuable lessons learned are summarized at the end of each chapter and provide insights into leadership characteristics such as: 

dedication to personal relationships
commitment to community
the ability to focus on other people's talents
the belief in being part of something greater than themselves
and engaging others in their vision.

The stories are extremely moving and the lessons learned are ones that every leader should take to heart. The saying is that "experience is the best teacher" and this book is a perfect example of that point. Tirawa Consulting recommends this book! Buy it now buy clicking on the book title above.
