Grazier, P. B. (1989).  Before It's Too Late: Employee Involvement, an idea whose time has come.
"When I started working in employee involvement I was completely unaware of the psychological implications. But then we began to observe behavior changes of the workers, and began to hear comments from their friends and spouses. We were experiencing a dramatic and powerful change that extended beyond the confines of the workplace. We were dealing with a concept that was affecting the whole person.
It was then, and only then, that we realized how tragic it is when a management system doesn't understand the need for recognition, for self-actualization, and job enrichment...and doesn't understand that how we treat people will largely determine how they respond and perform." (p. 85)

Peters, T. J. (1987).  Thriving on Chaos.
"It's absurd! We don't want for evidence that the average worker is capable of moving mountains—if only we'll ask him or her to do so, and construct a supportive environment. So why don't we do it?...
I am frustrated to the point of rage—my files bulge with letters about the power of involvement. Sometimes it's planned, and I'll talk about that. Sometimes it's inadvertent. But the result is always the same: Truly involved people can do anything!" (p. 286)
