From Theory to Action and Back
As an author, Rod has contributed significantly to the field of group dynamics, leadership and change management. He has authored or co-authored a dozen books including the best-selling text in group dynamics (Groups: Theory & Experience) to the more practical Tools and Activities for Strategic Planning, Intentional Design and the Process of Change, and Advanced Games for Trainers. More recently, Measuring What Matters and The Courage to Act blend theory and research with practical application.
His current manuscript about “The Seduction of the Leader” focuses on how deception has become a cornerstone of much that occurs in business and politics. The job of the leader is to understand their part of the natural collusion that exists and how to build a climate of trust and honesty within the team or organization.
