Based on the largest study of worker attitudes in the world and more than a decade of Gallup research, the authors explain the 12 Elements essential to motivating employees. The book also features the inspiring stories of 12 managers around the world who succeeded in these dimensions. More than a decade ago, Gallup combed through its database of more than 1 million employee and manager interviews to identify the 12 elements most important for sustaining high performance. These were identified in the 1999 bestseller First, Break All the Rules. The Gallup study now includes 9 million employee and manager interviews spanning 114 countries and conducted in 41 languages. The authors weave together the latest Gallup insights with recent discoveries in the fields of psychology, physiology, game theory, neuroscience, and management. Chapters in the book follow great managers as they harness employee engagement to turn around a failing call center, save a struggling restaurant, improve patient care in a hospital, maintain production through power outages, and face a host of other challenges in settings around the world. Written to be accessible to all managers and employees, 12 explains what every company needs to know about human nature on the job.

Vital Friends

Release Date: 2006-08-01
Genre: Business & Economics

#1 New York Times bestselling author Tom Rath delivers a fascinating read that will change the way you look at your family, friends, coworkers, and significant other. What’s the quickest way to ruin a friendship? Can bosses actually learn something from marriages? Are very close friendships in the workplace such a bad thing? These are just a few of the questions that #1 New York Times bestselling author Tom Rath asked when he embarked on a massive study of friendships. Along with several leading researchers, Rath pored through the literature, conducted several experiments, and analyzed more than 5 million interviews from The Gallup Organization’s worldwide database. His team’s discoveries produced Vital Friends, a book that challenges long-held assumptions people have about their relationships. And the team’s landmark discovery — that people who have a “best friend at work” are seven times as likely to be engaged in their job — is sure to rattle the structure of organizations around the world. Drawing on research and case studies from topics as diverse as marriage, management, and architecture, Vital Friends reveals what’s common to all truly essential friendships: a regular focus on what each person is contributing to the friendship — rather than the all-too-common approach of expecting one person to be everything. The book includes a unique ID code that provides access to the Vital Friends Assessment and website. This groundbreaking test reveals which friends play each of the eight vital friendship roles in your life. Tom Rath’s fast-paced and inviting storytelling takes a mountain of important research and makes it remarkably accessible and applicable. By the time you finish reading Vital Friends, you’ll see your family, friends, coworkers, and significant other in a whole new light.

Decade of Change

Release Date: 2011-05-17
Genre: Business & Economics

Change is often an abstract concept, discussed in business conferences and academic seminars. But it's been all too real this past decade. The momentousness of change during the past 10 years has inspired the Gallup Management Journal, an online business magazine that posts articles weekly for nearly 300,000 subscribers, to review how it covered and evaluated events during this period; how it tried to make sense of rapid change right as it was unfolding; and most importantly, how Gallup's most visionary people, as well as the great minds with whom Gallup regularly associates, helped organizational leaders navigate the most tumultuous years in memory. In these pages, you'll find insights and wisdom into how to manage, and make the most of, change. Nobel Prize winner Daniel Kahneman probes the nature of decision-making. Lieutenant General Russel Honoré, of Hurricane Katrina fame, offers leadership lessons he applied in the crucible of crisis. Vinton Cerf, one of the creators of the Internet, tells how he'll get six billion people online. Visionary executive Ray Anderson makes a powerful business case for environmental sustainability. Gallup Chairman and CEO Jim Clifton reveals what everyone in the globe most wants, And a host of other executives and thinkers tackle everything from mitigating the fear of layoffs, to promoting wellbeing in the workplace, to building customer engagement amid the post-crash ?new normal.” Some of the best business and organizational minds can be found in these pages, steering leaders through the various crises of the past decade, and helping find a way forward to what we all hope will be a brighter and more prosperous future. Decade of Change is as much a look backward as it is a roadmap for what lies ahead.
