9780131218567: Values-Based Leadership: Rebuilding Employee Commitment, Performance and Productivity (Prentice-Hall Career & Personal Development)

Recognizing the decline of employee commitment and motivation and the corresponding effect on corporate performance, this text offers a model to re-invigorate companies and restore the heart and soul of organizations. The "Anomic Management" model helps organizations replace prevalent feelings of drift, powerlessness and an "I don't care" attitude with a renewed sense of commitment.

From Booklist:

It has become quite fashionable today to decry a lack of values in society, and this lament has even carried over into management literature. One of the major trends in business books now is to stress the need for values, norms, social responsibility, stewardship, or trust in order to shape management--or more precisely--leadership. (In the organizational setting these terms are less likely to be used as code words representing hidden political or social agendas.) The Kuczmarskis are husband and wife; he heads a Chicago-based management consulting firm, she is executive vice president at the firm and an educator and trainer specializing in leadership skills. The Kuczmarskis hark back 100 years to when Emile Durkheim coined the term anomie to describe what they say was a similar era of normlessness with the same resulting sense of isolation and purposelessness. Their book is an attempt to teach managers leadership techniques that will help develop shared norms and values that all employees can subscribe to. David Rouse
