The Author writes about using methods of motivation for channeling efforts in teamwork. Enthusiasm and inspiration to succeed affect the group psychology, leading to excellence in performance. Giving direction with expectations, with the opportunity to fail and learn from mistakes, creates an environment where organizational change and development occur, and leaders duplicate mentors.

Favorite Quotes:
"We can allow ourselves to be absorbed into a group most readily when we are assured that the leaders will value our individuality."
"... the person in places of authority must assume the attitude of servant."
