"Managing to Inspire
provides both the theory and practical examples managers need to increase their effectiveness." Will Graylin, Chairman of the Board WAY Systems International
"Our managers and supervisors value and use the specific advice and guidance in this book. Managing to Inspire is helping us to achieve our goals for satisfied, self-directed, productive employees." Frank Ferguson, President, Curriculum Associates, Inc. 1976-2007 President, BOSE Corporation 1969-1976.
Your success as a manager rests on your ability to get the most from those you supervise. The traditional carrot-and-stick approach takes you only so far and never inspires employees to do their best work on a regular basis. To create an environment that fosters productivity, you need to know what motivates your workers to succeed.
People work hardest for what matters most to them, and they naturally resist control and coercion. If you create an environment where employees satisfy their basic needs by engaging in quality work, productivity will increase dramatically. This book shows you how to do just that.
If you are satisfied with employees who are doing just enough work to get by, this book has nothing to offer you. However, if you want employees who are productive, hardworking, and satisfied as they help the organization thrive, then Managing to Inspire will be an invaluable resource.
