Replying to LO29943 --

Roy and At and LO,

I have managed to unearth an old copy of Mike Robson's book published in the
early eighties, and reprinted in 1984 (in the UK), from which this..." The QC
assumes people are sensible and the QC concept assumes they can make up their
own minds about opportunities and that they ( the 'workers' as opposed to
'managers') are adults and not children."
And it also, interestingly given some of my recent postings points to a
location at the heart of true authentic leadership ..." Putting our own house
in order...this is what makes them powerful"
Re-reading the book now, even just a little, makes me think there are
connections between LO's and QC's. One other thing I sense - they are
ground-up - or from background to forgrounded ;-) as Senge might express it.
If I recall right, Mike wrote the book over a period of years as he travelled
to and from work in London for Unilever. On the back of his book he set up a
consultancy, which he retired from a few years back. Sensible man;-).
