“For more than a century, from 1900 to 2006, campaigns of nonviolent resistance were more than twice as effective as their violent counterparts in achieving their stated goals. By attracting impressive support from citizens, whose activism takes the form of protests, boycotts, civil disobedience, and other forms of nonviolent noncooperation, these efforts help separate regimes from their main...

I probably shouldn't say this (it's like saying that you like one of your children better than another), but this is my favorite book I've written so far. See what you think...

“Responsible: (1) Liable to be held to account for discharging one’s duty; (2) Able to make moral or rational decisions on one’s own and therefore answerable for one’s behavior; (3) Able to be trusted or depended upon; reliable.”
Erika Andersen, Growing Great Employees: Turning Ordinary People into Extraordinary Performers

“Achieving mastery requires breaking through the shell of your own limitations—both actual and imagined—and struggling up to the freedom and enjoyment of real skill.”
Erika Andersen, Growing Great Employees: Turning Ordinary People into Extraordinary Performers

“When you’re ready to have the conversation, pick the time and place very carefully. Most people choose to terminate people at the end of the day; the most common day is Thursday. The rationale behind these choices is that if you do it at the end of the day, the person is less likely to run into colleagues on the way out, and doing it on a Thursday (and asking that he or she not come to work on Friday) gives the person a long weekend to begin to go though his or her emotional reaction. Out of common courtesy, I suggest you not fire people within a couple of weeks of Christmas, Thanksgiving, or their birthday.”
