Competitive behavior–making yourself look good at the expense of those around you–is poor preparation if you expect to move up in an organization. While stealing another person’s ideas or taking credit for someone else’s accomplishments may seem to move you along more quickly at the lowest levels of an organization, it won’t take you very far.
The reason is, that the higher you move up, the more value those around you place on teamwork and cooperation–competitive people are simply not welcome because they create disharmony. So, while competitive people may win a few battles early in the game, they almost always lose the war. Keep that in mind the next time you’re tempted to one-up or out-do someone.
- 100% Employee Engagement Guaranteed! Newly Revised [Kindle & Paperback Editions]
Imagine a workplace where every employee is engaged with their work … where every employee shows up each day excited about giving every bit of energy, creativity and passion to performing their job. These employees don’t need to be motivated because they already are and they channel their motivation toward creating a competitive edge for their company that can’t be easily copied. They’re constantly making innovative changes to products, services and customer experiences while providing superior levels of customer service which results in loyal customers. This means higher levels of repeat and referral business which, in turn, translates into significant increases in market share. In addition, absenteeism and turnover rates for these fully engaged employees are far below industry averages because they absolutely love what they do. This book presents a new management model that guarantees an employee engagement level of 100%. If you implement this model in your organization, every one of your employees will become engaged with their work; all working at their full potential. Think of what it would mean to the success of your business or organization if you could get all of your employees engaged with their work.
