  • Our common belief in business is that the heart has no place in workplace management. In fact, most of us were taught that the heart acts like Kryptonite in leadership: it inherently undermines a manager's effectiveness - and lowers productivity and profitability. 
  • In this stunning and groundbreaking work, however, leadership and engagement expert, Mark C. Crowley, provides irrefutable proof that we were wrong. 
  • Crowley begins by showing us how traditional leadership practices are failing. Across the globe,employee engagement and job satisfaction scores have fallen to crisis levels. 
  • According to astonishing research from Gallup (insight Crowley was first in the world to report) 70% of the US workforce is now disengaged. 
  • It used to be that a job and a paycheck kept workers satisfied and productive. Today, pay barely makes the list of what inspires people to put their hearts into their work and contribute to their highest capacity. 
  • Right before our eyes, human beings have evolved in what they need and want in exchange for work. 21st Century employees are seeking to find purpose, meaning and feelings of significance. What drives their engagement is feeling valued, respected, appreciated, developed and cared for. 
  • Crowley's profound insight draws upon recent medical science discoveries which prove it's the heart, not the mind, that drives human motivation and achievement. 
  • There's nothing soft about Lead From The Heart. It represents the future of workplace management and a roadmap to driving uncommon engagement, productivity and profitability. 
  • When you Lead From The Heart, your people will follow.

Book Description Balboa Press, United States, 2011. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. If you re a leader in America, you ve got a big problem. More than half of all workers hate their jobs. In fact, job satisfaction and employee engagement have been declining for twenty-two straight years. One hundred years ago, a job and a paycheck kept workers satisfied. Now, pay barely makes the list. Employees needs have evolved dramatically. But our leadership practices have failed to keep up. In Lead From The Heart, Mark C. Crowley presents compelling new evidence that the solution leaders need lies in the last place traditional business would seek it: the human heart. Twenty-first-century employees need to feel. valued, respected, developed, and cared for. Their work has to matter. Recent scientific discoveries tell us that it s the heart, and not the mind, that drives human performance and achievement. Drawing on decades of experience as a senior leader for regional and national financial institutions, Mark C. Crowley offers proof that leaders who intentionally engage the hearts of their employees will be rewarded with uncommon (and highly sustainable) performance and achievement. We ve seen centuries of evidence of what the heart can do in sports, art, and music. Business is next. Lead From The Heart, and your employees will follow. Seller Inventory # APC9781452535425
