Make Waves encourages listeners to step up and be the one to initiate change in their work and lives. Author Patti Johnson walks listeners through the tools and techniques that they can use to create change in their own situations. Johnson elaborates on these tools even further to give listeners a sense of how to encourage and instill these "wave-making" behaviors in others within their organization. Using several diverse case studies as illustrative examples, Make Waves highlights the important steps that individuals at any level can take toward positive change. By reinforcing listeners' desires to contribute and make a difference, Johnson connects on an individual level and bridges the gap between that desire and the actions necessary to realize bigger changes. Change can be big or small. It is the act of stepping up that Johnson embraces, as well as the ripple effect on those around. Interviews with famous Wave Makers, as well as everyday people, illustrate why it is important to be the one to start change. Wave Makers profiled include Clint Hurdle, Manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates, believes in positive attitude and culture and changes the MLB clubhouse, this year leading the Pirates to their first winning season since 1992.
