You Don’t Have To Do It Alone – Richard Axelrod, Emily Axelrod, Julie Beedon, Jay Jacobs


“This book is an excellent resource — use it!”— Ken Blanchard – The One Minute Manager and Full Steam Ahead!

“A complete blueprint for involving others” and “the best of the current crop of books on this topic.”
— Paul R. Brown, New York Times Columnist

Most people in organizations tend to manage projects either as realists or humanists. You Don’t Have to Do It Alone brings together the practical view of the realist and the people-oriented view of the humanist, combining the best of both approaches into one role: the “Pragmatic Involver.” Covering everything from solving a nagging long-term problem at work that could save a company millions of dollars, to launching a community movement to improve local schools, the book shows how involving others in a project while maintaining one’s focus on the nuts-and-bolts details can make big things happen.

Using the authors’ six major questions – each of which is explored in detail – You Don’t Have to Do It Alone shows how success can be attained in a project on any scale, from redesigning a manufacturing process at a paper mill to creating an effective youth center.
