Imagine your best possible organization: a place where people strive for continuous improvement, communicate clearly and honestly, freely share information, respect their colleagues and leaders, make a difference and achieve truly extraordinary levels of performance, even in tough times. Using this book’s powerful Work/Life Approach, you can build that organization. World-renowned performance consultants Dr. Gene Fusch and Richard Gillespie offer a step-by-step blueprint for developing a true performance culture, where people bring a relentless focus and selfless collaboration to bear on the organization’s most fundamental goals. A Practical Approach to Performance Interventions and Analysis walks through every step of the process: analyzing business problems, identifying performance gaps, selecting the best interventions, measuring results, and more. You’ll learn how to integrate your organization’s goals with the beliefs and needs of your people; foster unity without conformity, and diversity without division; how to overcome the fear and distrust that makes organizations dysfunctional; and how to build an organization where everyone really takes ownership of their “fraction of the action.” Along the way, they present 50 dynamic models that tightly connect theory to real-world business practice, are ROI-driven, are fully measurable, and can be utilized by all leaders and practitioners in HR, organizational development, and training. With their guidance, you can choose and execute the performance initiatives that deliver the greatest positive impact on culture, business metrics, and the lives of all your people.

This wonderful book by Dr. Fusch and Mr. Gillespie shows that it is not difficult to engineer a business environment based on both productivity and respect. Putting down in print what Mr. Gillespie has practiced working for IBM and other notable companies, this textbook reads less like a manual and more like a diary on how these 50 models of performance interventions can help businesses to become more productive - with the end-product and with employee-employee relationships, etc. This will no doubt become Recommended Reading for many college business courses around the country and around the world, if not one of the required textbooks. Business instructors owe themselves a look-see to see how this book will enhance their teaching on these interventions and analysis. High recommended!
This book is equivalent to a master's class in business management. The authors make the claim that training is not always the best answer to better organizational performance. Then they prove it! Using a systematic approach, they discuss performance gaps, end results (note: do not use the word `goals' with these two!), valuing behavior, UAS (Understanding, Acceptance, Support), ROI as it relates to measuring the end result, and much other useful information. This book, along with a bit of study and contemplation, will make any business manager better. Outstanding.
