Book Description

January 1997
It is no longer enough to be a learning orgranization. Our efforts to re-engineer and deconstruct human systems have left 'yearning' organizations in their wake - companies filled with staff who are eager, if not desperate, to find meaning in their existence and their work.

"Going Deep" is a powerful and penetrating book that reconnects readers to joy, meaning and spirituality in life and work. In particular it challenges leaders to understand that until they focus as much on "Why?" as they do on "How?" they will never release the full potential of their organization.

Percy presents an unusually insightful description of the inner spiritual life of an organization - and all organizations have one. There are six phases of spiritual development that all individuals and all organizations must journey through to reach meaning and fulfillment. The failure to do so results in irritation and anger.

Never before has a business book reached so deeply into the human soul - and with such humor. A must-read for all leaders intent on taking their organization to greatness.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally a book I love that was published in the US! March 29 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Going Deep, offers a thought-provoking exploration of how we create meaning and soul in our workplaces. I was privileged to review a pre-press manuscript. Highlighter in hand, I found myself circling thoughts on many pages, laughing, pondering, nodding and relishing the most sensitive yet practical leadership I've read in years. Through Ian, a provocative international consultant and facilitator, you'll get first-hand insight into what happens when individuals move through "the great shuddering" into an engagement with life through work.

5.0 out of 5 stars A POM (Peace of Mind) Masterpiece Jan. 22 2002
By R. BraytonBowen - Published on Amazon.com
Beyond "When Bad Things Happen to Good People," this work is a must read for anyone seeking a perspective on how to leave the myth of "security" behind, especially when sailing into unchartered waters. Percy's shared experiences and inspiring insights are like a salve for those wounded and lost souls, who are both driven and tossed about by the uncertain currents of today's world of work. "Going Deep" compels readers to do just that, by examining their own lives for meaning and direction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Speaks to the Soul of your Business May 23 2000
By William Carson - Published on Amazon.com
Who would have thought "Soul & Business" could be used in relationship with each other? What a visionary masterpiece "Going Deep" is.
Had the pleasure of being in attendance at one of Mr. Percy's speaking engagements and picked up the book. His 11 Commandments of business are truly inspired.
Going Deep is the "Power of Positive Thinking" for the new age of business.
Buy this book!
