The Enthusiastic Employee: How Companies Profit by Giving Workers What They Want The Enthusiastic Employee: How Companies Profit by Giving Workers What They Want

by David Sirota, Louis A. Mischkind, Irwin Meltzer

Book Reviews

"I strongly recommend this book to anyone who is or wants to be a manager in business or elsewhere. The best parts of it -- and there are many -- simply give the words of ordinary workers and managers telling you what they like and don't like about their jobs. They will almost certainly surprise you."
--Donald E. Graham, Chairman of the Board, The Washington Post Company

"The Enthusiastic Employee is a breath of fresh air. David Sirota's insights -- drawn from his years of working with a variety of corporate cultures -- have helped our organization's multi-cultural management team build bridges and better understand the unique needs of our organization. This book provides practical insights into the relationship management should have with its employees." --Bill Taylor, President & CEO, Mercedes-Benz U.S. International

"Any manager who is trying to increase the performance of his organization ought to read this book. It is refreshingly devoid of buzzwords and magic formulas. Instead, it presents a coherent, common-sense framework, based on solid research, for thinking about what motivates and what de-motivates people at work, and then provides practical suggestions for handling everything from layoffs to incentive compensation." --Charles Rosotti, the immediate past Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service and Senior Advisor of the Carlyle Group

"The Enthusiastic Employee provides universal learning -- for any organization, in any industry, in any country. The authors give us a wealth of ideas, insights, and case studies from the world's greatest companies on a wealth of management topics -- from setting the mission statement to providing performance feedback. Whether you are just starting out in management or are the CEO of a large multinational company, I know that you will find The Enthusiastic Employee to be extremely useful and truly inspiring." --Chris Gibson-Smith, Chairman, London Stock Exchange

"If you're looking for proven ways of increasing company performance while building employee loyalty, productivity and satisfaction, this book is for you. I recommend it enthusiastically." --Richard Parsons, CEO of Time Warner
