Teaming up with research giant Towers Watson, All In authors Adrian Gostick and Chester Elton present an unprecedented 300,000-person study conducted during the worst of this recession. The data reveals that today’s high-performance organizations have a distinctive kind of culture in which employees believe in their leaders and the company’s mission, values, and goals. These employees are not only engaged, but also enabled and energized, which leads to impressive results—average annual operating revenues three times higher than companies lacking such a positive culture.
- Based on this research and their extensive consulting experience with the who’s-who of successful companies, the authors present a simple 7-step road map that all managers can follow to create a high-achieving culture within their own teams.
With the most current data available on corporate culture, the authors offer specific how-to's for each of the seven steps. They relate stories of leaders in action that vividly depict just how these powerful methods can be implemented.
Readers can expect to learn:
- The 3 researched-based characteristics of the world’s most profitable, productive organizational and team cultures.
- The 7 steps today’s most successful managers use to generate buy-in.
- How managers at any level can build a productive workgroup culture of their own where employees commit to the culture and give that extra push of effort.
Gostick is a global thought leader on workplace strategy and the author of several successful books on employee engagement:
- The Carrot Principle
- 24-Carrot Manager h
- The Orange Revolution
