Inspire, Motivate and Bring Out the Best in Your People

Employees have taken the brunt of this recession with layoffs, pay cuts and being overworked to make up for those who lost their jobs. Workers face constant worry over the possibility of losing their jobs. Add to that the dehumanization of Lean manufacturing and other robotic time- and cost-saving, “leave your brain at the door” measures, it’s time that someone did something how to improve the morale of North American workers.

Brian Tracy has done exactly that with his new book Full Engagement! He knows that the best way to get the most from your workers is to fire them up, to make their jobs matter. Show them how to win, show them how to succeed and show them how to be important.

This new book is full of easy-to-understand ideas for motivating employees by simply doing what’s right. Tracy shows the reader how to make people feel important through politeness, courtesy and constructive mentoring. He claims that by making people feel like winners, we make them winners. He demonstrates how something as simple as being very clear in our communications is the most important tool we have for getting our point across.

This is by far Brian Tracy’s best effort. It’s simple, it’s clear and it’s full of ideas that will make your company a great place to work. I recommend Full Engagement! to everyone serious about building great teams.
