Managing Energy Rather than Engagement – A Personal Development Tool
The subtitle highlighted on the front cover “A Brain-Based Approach That Blends the Engagement Managers Want with the Energy Employees Need” and the strong endorsements by influential industry leaders highlighted on the back cover immediately piqued my attention and interest
The reader books user friendly format, independent and clearly defined chapter themes, and the forceful approach of the author allow the reader the option of reading the book sequentially or by choosing chapters of interest that meet a specific immediate need or personal interest.
Each of the ten chapters opens with three questions:
- What’s the brain science?
- How does this show up at work?
- Why does it matter?
My interest was piqued by many of Wilson’s observations and expressions. The concepts focused creative energy and the power of conversation as an innovative tool for improving employee performance and business results. Chapters include a case study and an energy management question designed to open a dialog between you and your leaders.
“Beyond Management” is a book you will want to put into the hands of every member of your management team. The book is an excellent equipping tool. The ten leadership principles are innovative, practical, and infused with ideas for humanizing the workplace.
A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.
