Three Top Effectiveness Behaviors 

Since organizations are made up of people, organizational behaviors are informed first by internal behaviors, and then by interpersonal behaviors. One of the most widely read management books focusing on internal behavior, Spencer Johnson's Who Moved My Cheese? outlines the rewards one reaps when willing to move in a new direction. William C. Taylor and Polly G. LaBarre’s Mavericks at Work finds that the best entrepreneurs are mavericks who regularly question and challenge the established order and traditions.
