A Manager's Guide to Getting Results---Without Losing Your Soul
By Karin Hurt, David Dye
Final Release Date: April 2016
It can feel like a rigged game. Executives set aggressive goals, so managers drive their teams to burnout trying to deliver. Or, employees seek connection and support, so managers focus on relationships . . . and fail to make the numbers. The fallout is stress, frustration, and disengagement, and not just among team members—two-thirds of managers report being disengaged.
To succeed, managers cannot choose between results and relationships. They need both: They must get people to achieve while creating an environment that makes them truly want to. Winning Well offers managers a quick, practical action plan—complete with examples, stories, and online assessments. They will learn how to:
Stamp out the corrosive win-at-all-costs mentality
Focus on the game, not just the score
Reinforce behaviors that produce results
Sustain energy and momentum
Correct poor performance without drama
Build productive relationships
Be the leader people want to work for
Today’s hypercompetitive economy has created tense, overextended workplaces. Keep it productive, rewarding, and even fun with this one-stop success kit.
