The Power of Recognition / Book Club


In today's environment when the "new normal" is defined daily, it can be hard to retain good employees. With unemployment at an all-time high retaining talent can be tricky if you don't invest time and energy in helping your employees know they are appreciated.

When was the last time you told your colleagues how much you value them? It sounds like a trivial thing in the middle of a busy work day. But as Novak discovered during his years as a hard charging executive, there's nothing trivial about recognition. It can make a life-or-death difference to any organization, when people see that someone important really notices and appreciates their contributions.

Whether you're trying to lead a small department, a Fortune 500 company, or a non-profit organization, the story and lessons of O Great One! can help you make everyone around you happier and more effective.

This Book Club is offered in four parts. The first three parts address the three parts of the story. Participants are expected to read the assigned part and come prepared to answer a set of questions written for that section of the book. The final session is about applying the 10 Guiding Principles offered in the book to the readers work environment.

Sign up to take part in a journey that will help you see how critical recognition is to getting the most from your employees at work and to keep them coming back. Best of all, recognition is free and easy to apply when its timely, meaningful, and genuine.
