Companies compete to find and keep the best employees, using pay, benefits, promotions, and training. But these well-intentioned efforts often miss the mark. The front-line manager is the key to attracting and retaining talented employees. No matter how generous its pay or how renowned its training, the company that lacks great front-line managers will suffer. The authors explain how the best managers select an employee for talent rather than for skills or experience how they set expectations for him or her -- they define the right outcomes rather than the right steps how they motivate people -- they build on each person's unique strengths rather than trying to fix his weaknesses and, finally, how great managers develop people -- they find the right fit for each person, not the next rung on the ladder. And perhaps most important, this research -- which initially generated thousands of different survey questions on the subject of employee opinion -- finally produced the twelve simple questions that work to distinguish the strongest departments of a company from all the rest. This book is the first to present this essential measuring stick and to prove the link between employee opinions and productivity, profit, customer satisfaction, and the rate of turnover.… (more)

"Foreword by Jim Harter".

Where the book makes its bones is in understanding and measuring talent. The authors offer creative ideas on incentive-based pay and advise that companies tailor incentive plans to the individual. ( )

“Swedbank” bankas Lietuvoje išleido jau devintąją knygą savo klientams - M. Buckingham ir C. Coffman “Pirma sulaužykite visas taisykles”. Tradiciškai prieš Kalėdas išleidžiamu pasauliniu verslo bestseleriu, bankas siekia pristatyti pasaulyje pripažinimą pelniusias verslo valdymo ir lyderystės idėjas bei prisidėti prie jų diegimo Lietuvoje.

Naujai išleista knyga yra paremta fundamentaliu tyrimu. Knygos autoriai, “Gallup” bendrovės darbuotojai, apklausė 400 įmonių, 1 mln. darbuotojų ir 80 tūkst. vadovų. Susumuoti apklausos rezultatai yra sutraukti į dvyliką paprastų klausimų, kurie skirti stipriausiam kompanijos padalinio nustatymui. Šioje knygoje pirmą kartą aprašoma veiksminga vertinimo priemonė, įrodanti darbuotojų nuomonės ir našumo, pelningumo, klientų pasitenkinimo bei darbuotojų kaitos sąsajas.

“Šią knygą pasirinkome todėl, kad ji ne tik kelia netradicinių idėjų, apie kurias, manau, ne vienas esame intuityviai mąstęs, bet ir pagrindžia jas solidžiu tyrimu, pavyzdžiais bei parodo, ką reiškia jų taikymas praktikoje. Knygoje pateikiamo tyrimo išvados verčia susimąstyti – net ir vienodomis verslo sąlygomis, naudojant vienodus išteklius, verslininkai gali atsidurti priešingose sėkmės diagramos poliuose. Knyga dar kartą patvirtina, koks svarbus verslo komponentas yra talentingi darbuotojai”, - apie knygą įspūdžiais dalijasi “Swedbank” banko Lietuvoje valdybos pirmininkas Antanas Danys. “Tikimės, kad vadovai ir specialistai, skaitydami šią knygą pasisems naudingų žinių ir pritaikys jas praktikoje, ugdydami įgūdžius ir sėkmingai plėtodami verslą Lietuvoje ar tarptautinėse rinkose”.
