It saps your organization's strength, directly affecting your organization's ability to achieve the levels of customer satisfaction, productivity and profitability you know you could achieve.

The greatest managers in the world seem to have little in common. They differ in sex, age, and race. They employ vastly different styles and focus on different goals. Yet despite their differences, great managers share one common trait: They do not hesitate to break virtually every rule held sacred by conventional wisdom. They do not believe that, with enough training, a person can achieve anything he sets his mind to. They do not try to help people overcome their weaknesses. They consistently disregard the golden rule. And, yes, they even play favorites. This amazing book explains why.
Addressing todays work issues (including employee retention and burnout) with an engaging metaphor and an appealing message that applies to any sector of any organization, Fish! offers wisdom that is easy to grasp, instantly applicable, and profound: the hallmarks of a true business classic.

Jim Collins asked the question, "Can a good company become a great company... how?" In Good to Great Collins, the author of Built to Last, concludes that it is possible. Collins began by sorting through a list of 1,435 companies, looking for those that made substantial improvements in their performance over time. They finally settled on 11 well known companies and discovered common traits that challenged many of the conventional notions of corporate success. Going from good to great doesn't require a high-profile CEO, the latest technology, innovative change management, or a fine-tuned business strategy. But instead a corporate culture that rigorously found and promoted disciplined people to think and act in a disciplined manner. Good to Great is one of those books that managers and CEOs will be reading and rereading for years to come.

This book teaches readers how to recognize their style and its implications, how to read the styles of others, and how to choose the most effective style (or combination of styles) for any situation.

The bulk of the book details how, after finding your own voice, you can inspire others and create a workplace where people feel engaged.

As a social science researcher and an esteemed business consultant, Marcus Buckingham (First, Break All the Rules and Now, Discover Your Strengths) has spent considerable time studying the big picture. This wide-angle approach led him to an unexpectedly narrow conclusion: There is a core concept to even the most complex topic. What he has discovered in The One Thing You Need to Know is that single "controlling insights" exist for a whole range of situations, and when properly applied, can encourage exponential improvement and lead to precise action and results. In applying this concept to managing, leading, and individual performance he has pinpointed the single element necessary for achieving success in each of these three key positions.
