This was like other business management books I have read. There are some good ideas in it, but overall, the book is one you can scan for the main points. The authors draw on extensive surveys and corporate examples to make their points. However, after a while, you get a bit tired of hearing yet another story from some corporation, and to be honest, at times, some of the stories seemed a bit "pie in the sky." When I read books like this, I am looking to see what I can learn in terms of leadershi ...more
This is no different than any other management style encouragement book. Maybe I'm disenfranchised from my company's lack of ability to change - but they all just irritate me more than give me hope when my company assigns them to be read.

So, in terms of readability - it was fine. No major epiphanies, and no major flaws with writing style... neither was it particularly engaging. Its a normal middle-of-the-road for this genre type-book.
Really enjoyed the topics on belief and rewarding good behavior, which reinforces the desired behaviors over time and hardwires into the culture.

A concise book of examples managers have successfully used to better engage employees. This work deserves credit for its appropriate focus on the fact your employees are your public face. People do not just work for the paycheck; virtually everyone wants to contribute to something bigger and better. But few companies inspire their workers to get psychologically "all in".

Most of the lessons and advice were obvious, i.e., why it's important to form partnerships, recognize employees, and create open lines of communication. The Accountability chapter was by far the most useful and one that is worth reading and re-reading. A lack of accountability, impacts credibility, stifles growth, creates insecurity, and lowers morale.
Nothing really earth-shattering or new here. I was hoping for something a bit more practical in nature. I also didn't like that they seemed to only interview members of human resources and management, rather than the average employee in terms of gauging the success or failure of their practices.
Great book if you are looking for ways to change or improve the culture of your workplace, community, team or family. Excellent current examples of where these methods are working and examples of where the culture is failing and why.
This book has great information but I think it would be better to read it rather than listening to it while driving. I would have liked to take some notes and didn't have the opportunity so may read the print version soon.

Very good book. An easy read with lots of ideas to implement to help change/encourage cultures. Lots of anecdotes gave context to the ideas which helped the reader either adopt or discard as appropriate or otherwise.
Gary Hines
Not a bad read - but one to review on occasion. I plan on keeping this one and adding to my reference shelf for future needs. Especially for Chapter 12.
Rick Yvanovich

Several good and ready to use ideas that anyone who has to lead people ought to know
Some solid concepts. A little hard to find applicability for small organizations.
Michelle Cable
Has some good ideas. Also reminds you that sometimes the simple is the way to go.
