The collection's closing chapters advise managers on how to identify their core values and set examples for staff.

Empowerment is a process that requires ongoing effort, awareness, and commitment to transforming the hierarchy. This essential guide offers managers detailed, hands-on answers to real-life questions about how to navigate the journey to empowerment." "Written in an easily accessible QandA format, the book closely examines and expands on the three keys to empowerment originally presented in Empowerment Takes More Than a Minute--sharing information with everyone, creating autonomy through boundaries, and replacing the hierarchy with teams. It clearly outlines the promises and challenges of each stage of the journey, providing managers with thought-provoking questions, clear advice, effective activities, and action tools that will help them create a culture of empowerment. Wherever they are in the journey, managers will find a clear roadmap in this user-friendly action guide. Book jacket."--Jacket

Fit at last : look and feel better once and for all by Kenneth H Blanchard( Book )
9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 109 libraries worldwide
"When it comes to health and fitness, there's a big difference between commitment and interest. When interested exercisers who like to run wake up and find it is raining outside, they lie back down and say to themselves, "I think I'll exercise tomorrow." Committed exercisers get out of bed and say to themselves, "I think I'll exercise inside today." They keep their commitment to their commitment. In this book, bestselling author Ken Blanchard, teams up with successful health and fitness coach Tim Kearin to inspire others to move from an interest in fitness to a commitment to fitness. Ken shares the very personal story of his own ups and downs as he struggled to commit to a fitness program, while Tim gives professional health advice and training wisdom. They emphasize that you can't do it alone--if you can't hire a trainer they explain how you can create an informal team to keep yourself on track. And Ken shows that you can apply the same techniques he has used to strengthen leadership in organizations to lead yourself to establishing new positive habits and lasting, improved health"--
