This book presents a new leadership model that guarantees an employee engagement level of 100%. Putting this simple, three-step formula to work in your business—profit or nonprofit—will ensure that 100% of your employees will become engaged with their work—all working to their full potential. As a result, your employees will get more done, have more fun and generate way more profit.
This should be exciting news to leaders who are struggling to deal with the changing landscape of employee issues revealed in a recent global study conducted by the Gallup organization. It found that only 13 percent of employees are engaged with their work. This means that slightly more than one in ten employees are willing to do whatever it takes to make their company successful. On the other hand, nearly nine in ten aren’t working anywhere near their potential— they’re either apathetic toward their job, doing the minimum amount to get by or actively doing things to undermine the success of the business.
100% Employee Engagement—Guaranteed! will reveal:
The simple, three-step formula to establish an environment where every employee is engaged with their work
The new role that leaders must play in today’s changing marketplace to keep the employee engagement level at 100%
How the leadership practices at leading companies like Google, W. L. Gore & Associates, Southwest Airlines and Zappos embrace this new leadership model.
100% Employee Engagement—Guaranteed doesn’t over-promise and under-deliver. Combining a research-based formula with case studies that show it in action in some of today’s leading organizations, this book delivers a true solution to guarantee an employee engagement level of 100%.
Several weeks ago, I opened up Facebook and noticed that, Nancy; a long time friend of mine had made the following post: “Well, I did my good deed for the day. I went to City Hall and the bank and on the way home it started raining. As I drove down the road that leads to my house, I noticed an elderly lady walking alongside the road with her walker, I had seen her before but didn't know her, so I stopped and asked her I could take her home so she wouldn't be soaked by the time she got there. I put her walker in my backseat and off we went. When I dropped her off at her house, she said, ‘Thank you so much for stopping even though you don’t even know me.’ I made sure she got inside okay and was just glad I drove by when I did.” These are the kinds of deeds the world needs more of because they make it a much better place.
Recently, I was watching an episode of Globe Trekker on Public Television. The host of the show was passing through a city in Mississippi where he met a woman who was heralded as being an outstanding cook of Southern food. When he asked her what her secret was she reeled off a list of ingredients and then said that the main ingredient was love. She went on to say, “If you don’t cook with love, it don’t taste like nothin’”. The same holds true with most other tasks and activities that we have to perform as we journey through life. If we perform them without love, nobody notices and life becomes dull and mundane. On the other hand, if we perform these same activities with love, everything we touch becomes a masterpiece and life becomes joyful and fulfilling.
