The Management
Collection houses seven
volumes of the annual publication Developing
Human Resources. This series contains
practical material written by and for human
resource development (HRD) professionals.
Each annual volume is divided into three
sections: Structured Experiences,
Instrumentation, and Professional
Structured Experiences includes
work sheets, exercises, discussion
suggestions and other "hands on" activities.
These activities are useful for HRD
professionals who work with groups to
promote experimental learning goals such as
coping strategies, leadership skills, and using
feedback for group development.
The second section, Instrumentation,
consists of materials to be used in training
groups. For example, the 1992 annual
instruments could be used to determine
burnout potential and to assess an
organization's emphasis on Total Quality
Professional Development, the final
section, provides articles and other resources
of information that are useful in training
sessions or other career development
These volumes may be found in the
Management Collection at the call number

What Would He
Do, Anyway?
The place: the organized
chaos of your office. The events: just
another day-in-the-life. Your devoted, loyal
assistant of 12 years announces that he just can't
work another day with that so-and-so down the
hall, while you realize that the carefully crafted
consensus on your reorganization plan has fallen
apart. The question that immediately pops into
your mind: What would Attiia the Hun do now?
We can help you answer that question
with a tape in our video collection.
Leadership Secrets of Attiia the Hun, based
on the very successful book of the same
name, answers the question, "How prepared
are you for the battles you fight every day?"
We actually have two versions of this
tape. In the first, approximately 50 minutes in
length, the famous Hun tells you his secrets in
a series of monologues, and Wess Roberts
(the author of the original book), provides
analysis and appraisal of Attila's techniques.
The second tape, subtitled "The Monologues",
is 18 minutes in length and features Mr. Hun's
monologues alone, without Mr. Roberts'
commentary. This choice of presentations
gives you the ability to tailor your training
sessions as you like; though, if you don't use
the longer tape, it probably is important to
provide some sort of discussion/interpretation
of the Hun monologues.
Call us, or come to the Library to make
arrangements to watch any of our videos.
While you're here, pick up a copy of our video
catalog. And don't forget — Attiia the Hun is
waiting to talk to you. ~

The House Energy and
nfnJlf^u Commerce Committee ordered
[JUiJulJUU H.R. 3865, National Waste
^	^ Reduction, Recycling, and
Management Act, reported as amended on July 2.
After five days of markup they voted 28-15 in favor
of the bill. This is a controversial bill that pleases
neither environmentalist nor industry.
The following comments were made by
some congressmen:
Rep. Hall (D-TX), thanked Dingell for"holding
the line"against"anti-jobs, anti-business...and
anti- American" bill.
Rep. Waxman (D-CA) said many
environmental groups were urging the committee to
reject the bill and he would oppose the bill, stating,
"This committee doesn't reflect the votes on the House
floor." He feels the full House will be more sympathetic
to environmental provisions.
Rep. Sfkorski (D-MN) said Americans want
"fundamental change" in the way waste is handled, and
he feels the bill doesn't do that.
Rep. Eckart (D-OH) called the bill a "significant
step forward"and said "I choose to see this glass as
half full."
Rep. Dannemeyer (R-CA) said he opposed
the bill because it would result in additional federal
government regulation.
Rep. Swift (D-WA) said the bill doesn't weaken
existing law but strengthens it in a number of ways,
including provisions concerning scrap tire recovery,
movement of interstate waste, and packaging
recycling. He said it doesn't address the way
hazardous waste is handled but it is a good municipal
waste bill.
At this time it appears this bill has a good
chance of passing.
