Regular readers will recognize the name Eric Chester from when I reviewed his last book, “Reviving Work Ethic.” Eric has just released a new book called “On Fire At Work – How Great Companies Ignite Passion in Their People Without Burning Them Out.” As you may suspect from the title Eric's book addresses the topic of employee engagement.
Why You Should Read This Book
If you haven't asked yourself how to get good employees and how to keep them then you have never worked in a leadership or management position. It is the fundamental fulcrum on which all success balances.
Eric's approach flips around the almost silly notion that good people are just born and if you are lucky you will hire one. Instead Eric approaches engagement with the philosophy that good people are inspired and led to be good. Thus it is the leader that makes the people.
Eric uses examples and stories from interviews with over 25 founders/CEOs/presidents of companies like Marriott, Siemens, BB&T Bank, Wegmans, 7-Eleven, Hormel, Canadian WestJet, Ben & Jerry’s, and The Container Store, along with smaller companies like Firehouse Subs, the Nerdery, and Build-A-Bear.
