In 23 years as an organizational development consultant author Paul Deslauriers has assisted over one hundred TV broadcasting stations, advertising agencies, corporations and public service grassroots groups in finding their paths to positive energy and sustained success.

Paul recognized that groups that function well and achieve impressive accomplishments all integrate six specific core values and associated behaviors into their culture.

When you get your group aligned with these six specific core values and behaviors your organization will naturally function at a high level, participants will be uplifted and rejuvenated. Love, trust, and collaboration will flourish.

TheGRASSROUTE GUIDE details these six characteristics using real-world examples and a series of self-tests that teach the skills and processes needed for your group to function at a high level and tap its true power and potential.
