Short Synopsis
Robert Kegan and Lisa Laskow Lahey present a radical new model for unleashing your company's potential in An Everyone Culture: Becoming a Deliberately Developmental Organization.

Full Synopsis
What if a company did everything in its power to create a culture in which everyone could overcome their own internal barriers to change and use errors and vulnerabilities as prime opportunities for personal and company growth?

Robert Kegan and Lisa Laskow Lahey have found and studied such companies—Deliberately Developmental Organizations. A DDO is organized around the conviction that organizations will best prosper when they are more deeply aligned with people's strongest motive, which is to grow. This means going beyond consigning "people development" to high-potential programs, executive coaching, or once-a-year off-sites. It means fashioning an organizational culture in which support of people's development is woven into the daily fabric of working life and the company's regular operations, daily routines, and conversations.

An Everyone Culture dives deep into the worlds of three leading companies that embody this breakthrough approach. It reveals the design principles, concrete practices, and underlying science at the heart of DDOs—from their disciplined approach to giving feedback, to how they use meetings, to the distinctive way that managers and leaders define their roles.

An Everyone Culture is founded upon a simple yet powerful insight: that the best way to unleash an organization’s power is to realize the full potential of its individual employees." ---Dominic Barton, Global Managing Director, McKinsey & Company

An Everyone Culture is the most provocative recasting of human and organizational potential since the advent of the ‘learning organization.’ It will transform how you think about work and workplace culture in the twenty-first century.” ---Gary Hamel, professor, London Business School

"By connecting the emerging science of human development to the art of building a successful business, Kegan and Lahey have created the book that developmentally oriented managers have long been waiting for.” ---Peter M. Senge, senior lecturer, MIT; founding chair, Society for Organizational Learning

"Stephen R. Thorne captures the optimism in this invitation to make your organization a crucible for human growth instead of a place where learning is stifled and spirits are deadened." ---AudioFile
