Book Review: From Bud to Boss


Noticeably absent from the book are references to evidence-based theories or well-researched models (with the exception of a two page summary of Tuckman’s Group Development model). Last week we released our February podcast featuring an interview with Guy Harris, co-author of From Bud to Boss.
