Especially when it’s Rosabeth Moss Kanter.
Professor Kanter is the author or co-author of 17 books, including a Business Week #1 Bestseller.

Work started at 6 AM (a rude awakening for a college kid) with a crew of workers 25-45 years older than I was. Some of them were hired into their jobs during World War II; some were parents of high school classmates. They had forgotten more about the best ways to do things than I could ever learn in a summer.
And, they had all learned one critical lesson—how to celebrate in the workplace.Read More
