Reviews

'I am delighted to add my voice to those who see in this work a defining break-through in insight and savvy so important to the conduct of workplaces and organizational management. "Missing Pieces" makes it clear that the 21st Century will be more about human relations than human resources in the contemporary workplace. This is a message that the hardest of hard-nosed managers need to hear.' - Bill Wilkerson, Co-Founder, Chairman and CEO, Global Business and Economic Roundtable on Addiction and Mental Health and General Chairman, US/Canada Forum on Mental Health& Productivity

'With increasing business competition, the need for employee engagement, effectiveness and productivity has never been greater. Successful businesses recognise the contribution employee well-being can bring but many fail to understand or implement coordinated approaches. The authors, from years of experience, bring clarity to the subject and provide a succinct and strategic approach to successfully implementation. This is a 'must read' for CEO's, and Human Resource Managers.' - Dr David C Batman, Head of Employee Wellness, Nestle UK and Ireland

'It's about the people, not the numbers. This book articulates and answers the most important question in human enterprise. What is missing? People are not by nature unhappy nor are organizations by design inefficient. People are designed by their creator and organizations by their creators to do great and wonderful things, and they do. Is it not a miracle to place a man on the earth's moon and return him safely? That is miraculous. So, something is missing when things go wrong. Brun and Cooper tell us what is missing and they tell us how to fill in the hole. This book should not go missing from the manager's shelf.' - Professor James Campbell Quick, Executive Director, Goolsby Leadership Academy, University of Texas at Arlington
