Kaizen change therapy

Not quite what I expected, but nonetheless excellent. I was familiar with kaizen as an engineer's process improvement tool, or more accurately 'philosophy'. Maurer' background as a clinical psychologist adds a new dimension in explaining WHY kaizen might succeed in helping us to deal with resistance to change, and what we might do to overcome the obstacles. Many useful anecdotal illustrations. His delivery was calm and believable, as one might expect from a doctor.
