This Friday I am doing a talk here in Jackson on motivating your employees. The talk is part of the Small Business Summit put on by OSB Community Bank and takes place at the Grand River Marketplace from 11:30am to 2pm. (Warning: the content of this presentation will make lesser minds explode).
I am debating whether to put together another Freebie for you. I can certainly write up what I am going to say. My hesitation is that it will end up mostly being a book review. Well, two book reviews.
Much of my leadership style and much of how I motivate my team come from two books.
Drive by Daniel H. Pink
Maestro by Roger Nierenberg
Would you like to learn how to motivate your staff to their highest level of achievement and creativity? Read Drive.
Would you like to learn how to lead a team of high-achieving creatives? Read Maestro.
Would you like me to summarize my thoughts on the two books including how I use their approaches in real life in a new Freebie later this fall? Leave me a comment below (or on Facebook or Google+ or by email).
Hope to see you Friday.
PS Would you like me to give this presentation to your group? Send me an email. This presentation will knock the argyles right out of those wingtips.
