Working Hard—and Working Well

Working Hard—and Working Well is a sleeves-rolled-up companion to Leap of Reason. The book is a resolutely practical guide to developing the discipline and culture of performance management.

Even as performance management has gained prominence in conferences and publications, it is still widely under-appreciated and misunderstood. David decodes and defangs performance management, providing history, context, and concrete guidance for those who want to do more to improve the lives of those they serve.
