The Courage to Actively Care


How to Cultivate a Culture of Interdependent Compassion

This is a realistic narrative about finding personal courage to achieve and sustain an actively-caring-for-people (AC4P) culture. This page-turner teaches critical evidence-based principles and procedures not covered in prior fictional narratives for the business world. In particular, this novel reveals practical ways to increase AC4P behavior throughout a work culture, thereby enhancing both individual and organizational performance.

The situations and character interactions presented are based on authentic events. In fact, it’s likely every reader has experienced life-changing episodes similar to those revealed in this true-to-life story. The disparaging circumstances disclosed happen all too often in the business world. The solutions offered to address these human relationship issues are founded on behavioral science, not common sense.

Theresa Reinwasser, a safety professional for Romeo RIM, Inc., reported, “This is the first book I’ve read in a long time that I just simply could not put down. The leadership issues addressed here struck me so deeply that I have already re-read the book and highlighted the most critical and relevant lessons, so I can discuss them with my organization’s top leadership.”
