Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

Thank God It’s Monday! is about loving what you’re doing and creating massive results. Roxanne Emmerich introduces you to two CEOs: one desperately struggling to stay afloat and another who’s discovered a better route to growth and profitability. As you join them both on their journey, you’ll gain valuable insights for jumpstarting positive change from anywhere in the organization…replacing dysfunctional organizational behaviors with passion and creativity…overcoming setbacks…making vision and values actually work!

Whether you’re on the front line, in an office, or running the show, you’ll see how to:
• Replace dysfunctional behaviors with passion and creativity
• Overcome setbacks with a “bring it on” attitude
• Breathe results-generating life into vision and values
• Think big and make big things happen

Thank God It’s Monday! presents a unique approach that makes an impact on three groups at once:
• Employees discover how to win at work and love their work
• Companies turn around results quickly and profoundly
• Customers experience a powerful and visible commitment to their success

You will shift from a “why we can’t” to a “how we can” workplace...in one day! Your customers will go crazy about you. You will find yourself loving to go to work where everyone exclaims, Thank God It’s Monday!


“Thank God Roxanne is willing to share her special mix of motivation and proven methods to supercharge your workplace. Readers will move from ‘Thank God It’s Monday’ to ‘I Wish Every Day Could Be Monday.’”
—Harvey Mackay, author of the New York Times #1 bestseller Swim With the Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive

"Thank God It's Monday! is a mantra all organizations should chant. This book helps you not only see the joy that work can bring but it gives you ways to bring it to life. Buy this book only if you truly want to transform your organization."
—John Christensen, creator of the FISH! Philosophy and coauthor of FISH!

“Roxanne Emmerich provides an important reminder that trust, integrity, accountability, and FUN are the cornerstones of real business results. Changing the culture of your workplace can be challenging but delivers an undeniable return. Given we spend at least a third of our adult lives at work, we should all aim to wake up after the weekend and shout, ‘TGIM!’”
—Jeffrey Hayzlett, Chief Marketing Officer, Eastman Kodak Company

“Read Thank God It’s Monday! and let Roxanne Emmerich’s engaging stories and inspiring ideas help you create passion in your organization. The words ‘love’ and ‘work’ can be used in the same sentence!”
—Ken Blanchard, coauthor of The One Minute Manager® and author of Leading at a Higher Level
