What We're Saying

August 03, 2007

I know it is only a few of days into August, but we are starting to see and think about the fall. Jack is quoted today in a Bloomburg News story about Dream Manager by Matthew Kelly. He is a little more positive about the book than might be evident from the quote. READ FULL DESCRIPTION

After a summer of same-old, same-old on the Wall Street Journal Business Bestseller List, two new books appear this week signaling the start to the fall business book season. Given some of my comments recently, it serves me right that I have to report both titles are business fables. Pat Lencioni returns with his sixth story-based book, titled The Three Signs of a Miserable Job: A Fable for Managers (and Their Employees). READ FULL DESCRIPTION

Finding It

By 800-CEO-READ

Recently, I was at a popular electronic "super store" (think Circuit City/Best Buy type). I was browsing through the DVDs and noticed a flaw, basically due to the fact that I'm a big trivia geek: most of The Thin Man mystery series were shelved with movie musicals like Grease, West Side Story and everything Elvis. Odd, right? READ FULL DESCRIPTION

The Myth of Work-Life Balance

By Sally Haldorson

When was the first time you heard that phrase: work-life balance? Initially, I remember it coming up primarily in discussions about women and the tough choices they make to balance their responsibilities and desires as mothers with the demands of their careers.

Full Description

A business parable about how companies can achieve remarkable results by helping their employees fulfill their dreams Managing people is difficult. With disengagement and turnover on the rise, many managers are scratching their heads wondering what to do. It's not that we dont dream of being great managers, it's just that we havent found a practical and efficient way to do it. Until now . . . The fictional company in this remarkable book is grappling with real problems of high turnover and low morale -- so the managers begin to investigate what really drives the employees. What they discover is that the key to motivation isnt necessarily the promise of a bigger paycheck or title, but rather the fulfillment of crucial personal dreams. They also learned that people at every level need to be offered specific kinds of help and encouragement -- or our dreams will forever remain just dreams as we grow dissatisfied with our lives and jobs. Beginning with his important thought that a company can only become the-best-version-of-itself to the extent that its employees are becoming better-versions-of-themselves, Matthew Kelly explores the connection between the dreams we are chasing personally and the way we all engage at work. Tackling head-on the growing problem of employee disengagement, Kelly explores the dynamic collaboration that is unleashed when people work together to achieve company objectives and personal dreams. The power of The Dream Manager is that simply becoming aware of the concept will change the way you manage and relate to people instantly and forever. What's your dream?
