About The Book:
Leaders soon learn that it’s impossible to inject motivation into people who lack passion. So how do you find and keep the truly passionate, committed, high-performance people who will take your organization to new levels of success? If you’re tired of gimmicks and fads and interviewing “flavors-of-the-month,” this indispensable guide will show you how to get down to what really matters.
The booklet provides five major sources of clues to help you identify passionate people, an elegantly simple way to determine whether this passionate person is right for this organization, ten keys to keeping the people you’ve worked so hard to find, and seven keys to effective teams.
“One additional concept on Powersharing: When a leader gets to a point when his or her most significant satisfaction comes from seeing others in their teams be successful, then that to me is a sign of the best leader. When the leader is not interesting in plugging themselves saying, “See, here is what I did,” but rather, “See what my team member did,” or, “See how my team worked together to effectively come up with this solution, you’re there. You have arrived when it really doesn’t make much of a difference who gets the accolades for the effort.” - Dan Cole, Senior VP Administration, Ameren Energy, Fuels, and Services
