Monthly Book Pick!
This month I picked Marcus Buckingham’s First Break All the Rules [Kindle Edition]. This book is a summary of Gallup’s studies accumulated in the mid to late 1990. Gallup’s research produced twelve simple questions that distinguish the strongest departments of a company from the rest. This book introduces this essential measuring stick and proves the link between employee opinions and productivity, profit, customer satisfaction, and rate of turnover.
“Engaged workers view the world differently than disengaged workers do because they have managers who develop their strengths rather than fixate on their weaknesses.”
This book will teach managers how to engage workers and dig deeper to create a sustainable organization.
