An everyone culture:

becoming a deliberately developmental organization

A radical new model for unleashing your company’s potential.

In most organizations nearly everyone is doing a second job no one is paying them for–namely, covering their weaknesses, trying to look their best, and managing other people’s impressions of them. There may be no greater waste of a company’s resources. The ultimate cost: neither the organization nor its people are able to realize their full potential.

What if a company did everything in its power to create a culture in which everyone–not just select “high potentials”–could overcome their own internal barriers to change and use errors and vulnerabilities as prime opportunities for personal and company growth?

Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey (and their collaborators) have found and studied such companies–Deliberately Developmental Organizations. A DDO is organized around the simple but radical conviction that organizations will best prosper when they are more deeply aligned with people’s strongest motive, which is to grow. This means going beyond consigning “people development” to high-potential programs, executive coaching, or once-a-year off-sites.

“An Everyone Culture” dives deep into the worlds of three leading companies that embody this breakthrough approach. This book demonstrates a whole new way of being at work. It suggests that the culture you create is your strategy–and that the key to success is developing everyone.

Here are a few pointers to get a head start:

Are you in the job search mode yet?

Stop by on the ground floor of the library to check out our job search corner. Last year’s most popular titles: Ace Your Case, Case in Point, Crack the Case.

Looking to improve your Français, Italiano, or Deutsch to ace the 3rd language requirement?

Check out our language books, here is a selected list. For more material on various languages, just use the Library catalogue.

What about textbooks?

Most recent editions of textbooks cannot be checked out of the library, however, you are welcome to pick one up from the shelves on the ground floor and read it “in house”. No need to carry these heavy items around everyday. We also have a small selection of e-textbooks (look for the ‘online access’ mention).

Where can I find articles on a topic? How do I start researching a company?

You can start on this databases page, use these research guides or video tutorials.  If you want to know how to get full text articles from the Harvard Business Review or the Financial Times, create a target list of companies, find SWOT analyses and more, contact the research librarians.

How do I contact you?

The Doriot Library is staffed Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 6:00pm. Contact the information desk during these hours or contact a specific person/department using the staff directory page.

We look forward to seeing you,
