Positive Management: Increasing Employee Productivity


There is a myth in American and other first-world business cultures that being tough and unreasonable are keys to extracting high productivity from employees. Not true. Profound economic, demographic, and cultural change is creating a workplace where that myth can no longer be believed. If your organization has people who are hard to work for or is facing increasing difficulty in finding top-quality employees, this book will help you learn more about positive management and how to reach your strategic objectives. This book explains how to use this positive management (PM) as an organization-wide strategy to motivate employees, increase productivity, and accomplish organizational goals by creating upbeat and dignified relationships in the workplace. It covers the use of PM in a variety of situations, including difficult and negative ones, to achieve higher employee commitment and motivation, to lower communication inefficiencies, and to reduce absenteeism and turnover. Any manager, business owner, or student of management will want to have this book on hand when positive management is the next step and the right step.
