Front Cover
FriesenPress, Dec 7, 2012 - Business & Economics - 224 pages
Many mission statements commit to treating people as the most important resource in the organization, yet, according to extensive research, more than 50% of all employees in the USA are not engaged in their work. When employees are not engaged in their work, leaders have to carry most of the load by default! Is it any wonder that most leaders tend to feel lonely at the top? This book educates leaders on how to effectively engage every member of an organization by describing, in detail, a live case study of a CEO who followed the Five Star Power process and achieved unprecedented results in the organization.The process has been proven in many global organizations in the past 30 years. Over the four year period that the Five Star Power process was embedded in the organization, the team achieved the following: EBITA improvement of 175%, cash flow improvement of 254%, employee satisfaction of 85%, reduction in absenteeism of 16%, improvement in safety of 54%, organic sales growth of 52%, and the organization outperformed its industry by three times. You can do this too-just follow the yellow brick road of Five Star Power.
