Michael L. Stallard with Carolyn Dewing-Hommes and Jason Pankau
Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
IT'S A 300 BILLION-DOLLAR PROBLEM NATIONWIDE. HOW MUCH IS IT COSTING YOU AND YOUR ORGANIZATION?
Research by the Gallup Organization suggests that fewer than three out of ten Americans are engaged in their jobs. Imagine the wasted human potential! In economic terms, disengaged workers cost our economy $250-$300 billion every year--and that's a conservative estimate. Motivational speeches and incentive programs can produce a short burst of enthusiasm or a spike in productivity. But a flameout almost always follows, then a return to the sorry status quo.
What makes organizations thrive over the long term? What makes people perform to the best of their abilities--not just for a burst of productivity, but over the course of a career? As Michael Lee Stallard shows, it all comes down to creating an environment where people feel connected to one another, to their work, and to the larger mission of the organization.
Michael Lee Stallard shows the three keys that can empower a leader to transform even a lethargic, disconnected organization into an impassioned, innovative, and thriving workplace. Practical and inspiring, Fired Up or Burned Out just might launch the revolution that corporate America needs. Starting with you.
