Mike Wash is the kind of person who helps others to reach inside, find hidden resources, pull them out and point them in the right direction, to produce great results in life and business. In this rich and accessible book he helps the reader to understand the principles of how to work in an effective, ethical and holistic way - if you work in any kind of human resources - you will want to read this book now!
Dr Janice Russell, Module Leader
University of Hull Coaching Masters Course
Having used the approaches described within this resource, and seen the benefits for individuals, team and the organisation as a result, I would say this is a must-have resource for any organisation development practitioner. Mike brings the subject matter to life in a very practical way.

I wish that I had access to this insightful book when I was a young manager who knew everything (!), but needed reference points and a counter-view. Come to think of it, I wish that I'd had it when I was an old manager!
Lawrence Jackson, Managing Director (Retired)
Gentech International Limited
This book helps managers to identify not just what needs to be done 'in the moment', but also how open and honest discussion between employees and employers can lead to what Mike Wash describes as 'organisational healing'. Though many of the situations and dialogues are fun to read, they also make the reader squirm with embarrassment from the sheer recollection of having heard these types of conversations before - and yet, done little to bring about learning and renewal in any real or meaningful way.
The 54 Approaches illustrate clearly what it takes to sustain health and wealth through the process of work.
Christopher Bunker, Head of HR Europe
Polaroid Corporation (Part of the Petters Group Worldwide)
This has all the most useful tools in the essential tool kit for someone new to the notion of manager as facilitator. This is essential organisational first aid to enable organisations to move toward greater health.
Bryce Taylor, Director
Oasis School of Human Relations
Mike Wash uses his vast experience of people, organisations and processes to enable the reader to enhance themselves, their organisations and their lives. This book will be invaluable for CEO's, MD's, coaches and anyone working, needing or choosing to heal their organisation. I shall recommend this to all my students as absolutely essential reading.
Dr Graham Dexter
