Creating a Positive Work Environment
by Gisèle Chrétien

Gisèle Chrétien condenses her thirty years of experience in education, health and community development to share the lessons she has learned for effective and positive leadership. She states "Leadership is not about you, yet it is all about you."

"In a compact practical way, Leadership makes sense. While geared to the work environment, the principles are easy to understand and can be applied to a wide variety of situations in every-day life. A book well worth reading and using."

Composed of three sections: Creating the Right Environment; Nurturing the Environment; and Reaping the Benefits, this book contains the essential ingredients to great leadership with examples and helpful hints to assist potential and new leaders in a very practical way.
