The real role of corporate universities
Many corporate universities have an identity problem—they serve non-business organizations. The real corporate university does more than train; it develops the next generation of leaders, shaping corporate culture and changing employee behaviour.
Expert Mark Allen and others aim their valuable advice on organizing these universities at chief learning officers, corporate university professionals and coaches. If your goal is to develop employees and improve productivity, getAbstract recommends this informative book.

Being honest and kind are good starting points but the issues get complex. GetAbstract recommends this book to people who want to make satisfying choices and enhance relationships.
