What if a company did everything in its power to create a culture in which everyone 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 Laskow Lahey have found and studied such companies—Deliberately Developmental Organizations. A DDO is organized around the 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. It means fashioning an organizational culture in which support of people's development is woven into the daily fabric of working life and the company's regular operations, daily routines, and conversations. An Everyone Culture dives deep into the worlds of three leading companies that embody this breakthrough approach. It reveals the design principles, concrete practices, and underlying science at the heart of DDOs—from their disciplined approach to giving feedback, to how they use meetings, to the distinctive way that managers and leaders define their roles.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Stephen R. Thorne captures the optimism in this invitation to make your organization a crucible for human growth instead of a place where learning is stifled and spirits are deadened. His phrasing and pacing have the energy needed to open bureaucratic minds and give hope to leaders who have become complacent or cynical about helping people grow.” AudioFile
An Everyone Culture is founded upon a simple yet powerful insight: that the best way to unleash an organization's power is to realize the full potential of its individual employees. Dominic Barton, Global Managing Director, McKinsey & Company
“Their jottings and anecdotes draw you in, to join them in peering over the edge of what might just be a management revolution.” Forbes
“Some fascinating ideas about how to create an organizational culture that fits the twenty-first century.” Inc. magazine
“A bold approach, one that requires a longer view of success and the patience to accept stumbles…Any person and any company can learn from the thinking behind the DDO concept.” Chicago Tribune
