The new definition of a high-performing workplace, based on proprietary and cutting-edge research on emotional intelligence from a world-leading authority on performance.
In Make Your Workplace Great, Steven Stein addresses the changing workplace and the demands on managers to make the right hires. He explains how an organization can measure job satisfaction and productivity levels, and how factors such as happiness on the job, compensation, and work-life balance can be addressed by the organization. The author also discusses organizational cohesion, which includes nurturing interpersonal relationships, ensuring good managers are in place, and coaching organizations to deal with diversity issues, stress, and anger/violence in the workplace. Finally, the author addresses how an organization can enhance its brand among its own people through training and innovation, fostering optimism, integrity, and quality leadership.
The author drills down into these issues through 7 keys:
7: Be proactively responsive by doing the right things to win the hearts and minds of your people.
1: Hire capable people who love their work.
2: Compensate people fairly.
3: Don’t overwork (or underwork) people.
4: Build strong teams with shared purpose and visible goals.
5: Make sure managers can manage.
6: Treat people with respect and leverage their unique talents.
