People succeed over time and sustain positive performance when they tie in their actions to a deep understanding of human nature. Survival to Growth explores human nature and illustrates how occupational goals and objectives can be achieved by applying a basic organizational approach, and upgrading the skill level of each company employee. Chronicling real-life examples from various industries, Hout illustrates the responsibility of management to continuously review and upgrade company standards, maintain a 'can do' attitude in dealing with problems, identify core issues, and offer practical solutions. The author also explores the role of a successful company employee: a person with leadership qualities, a high regard for ethical values, and the commitment to teamwork and to the greater good of the company. Success in organizations has always been determined by a clear understanding of business theory and application, and good management and employees, but Hout shows us how continuity of this success is characteristic of businesses and employees that understand how to relate to the basic needs of human behavior.
