How can you inspire your employees to the high levels of
engagement that drive strong results across the board?
Drawing on over 30 years of research and data from more than two
million constituents around the world, Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner,
the bestselling authors of The Leadership Challenge, expand
on their work with The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership to
create a new metric?Positive Workplace
Attitudes?addressing how leaders affect employee engagement.
Their research shows how positive feelings about being part of the
workplace strongly influence people's willingness to apply
discretionary effort to their work. People put forth much more
effort for their best leaders and very little for their worst
leaders. Leaders who more frequently exhibit exemplary practices
foster engagement and inspire people to go from acceptable to good
and even to great.
Filled with new findings from Kouzes and Posner's original
research, Great Leadership Creates Great Workplaces expands
the reach of The Leadership Challenge to address pressing,
critical issues around employee engagement, and how leaders can
improve it to outperform the competition.
