Summary
  • There is a myth in American and other first-world business cultures that being tough and unreasonable are keys to extracting high productivity from employees, but profound economic, demographic, and cultural change are creating a workplace where that myth can no longer be believed. People who are hard to work for will face increasing difficulty in finding top-quality employees, especially highly educated ones. If your organization has this problem, it could seriously hamper the accomplishment of strategic objectives. This book explains how to use positive management (PM) as an organization-wide strategy to motivate employees, increase productivity, and accomplish organizational goals by creating upbeat and dignified relationships in the workplace. It covers the use of PM in a variety of situations, including difficult and negative ones, to achieve higher employee commitment and motivation, to lower communication inefficiencies, and to reduce absenteeism and turnover
