 Praise for the Book


"Never Get Lost Again is a home run. The authors make it clear that talent development and business sense are crucial to the success and survivability of every organization and that these skills have never been more important for HR professionals than they are today. This is a must read for anyone in Human Resources and for leaders in other business functions as well." -- Jack Greaf, President & CEO, Mitsubishi Electric Power Products, Inc.

"In Never Get Lost Again Glube and Hartman have focused the reader on the value of HR professionals being different from the majority of co-workers by both intent and design. Their guidance on using these differences and on developing the legitimate ability to speak the language of business should be generously inserted into the development plan of anyone who plans to walk the career path 'less traveled' by their HR peers." --  Paul D. Gibson, Executive Vice President & Chief Human Resource Officer, Mattamy Homes
