In this disarmingly simple book, Oshry strips away much of the mystery and mythology of organizational life. Part I deals with "Internal Warfare," a painfully familiar scenario of organizational life. Part II takes you into the distinctly different worlds of Tops, Middles, Bottoms and Customers of organizations. You see how misunderstandings and conflict develop across "worlds" and how cooperation can be achieved. Part III confronts you with critical choices faced every day -- choices that can transform your life and the life of your organization.

"I am currently reading Barry Oshry's, The Possibilities of Organization. It is very interesting and insightful. It is amazing how spot on Barry's observations are. It vividly (and correctly!) captures how I have felt as a BOTTOM in my organization. This book has helped me see new possibilities. Thank you!"Russell C. Carlson, Bank President and C.E.O

Robert J. Mroz Manager, Customer Service
"Our executives are using POSSIBILITIES to help people shift from a negative victim mentality to a positive 'can do' one. I highly recommend this to anyone wishing to make empowerment a reality."

"A classic. Oshry's Eclectic Reader in Organization. A helpful book that is easy to read, understand and retain. Freshly new and yet familiar. The obvious revealed. Profound in its simplicity. Clearly a 10."
