Overview

"If only I could get better people, we'd be more productive around here." "I shouldn't have to hold their hands while they do their job." "If only I wasn't burdened by the people I manage."

Have you ever uttered these words? Have you ever wondered why you can't get your people to do what you want them to do? Have you ever felt powerless as a manager? The truth of the matter is, you have all kinds of power to get better people and to get people better. As a coach, you can have incredible talent on your team, but if you don't create an environment for success, your team will never be incredible. And without incredible teams, companies don't become incredible. They plod along at best, and falter at worst.

Written by founder of The Game of Work consulting company and author of the book The Game of Work Charles A. Coonradt, The Better People Leader holds the key to helping you inspire your team to greatness. This book teaches you to take the proactive and accountable approach to leadership, giving you the power to draw out your employees' strengths, strengthen their weaknesses, and help them improve. As a better people leader, you have the power to coach your employees to greatness, to enable and ennoble them. In return, they will do all that you ask of them and more, and you will see personal, team, and company successes you cannot imagine today.

Charles A. Coonradt, acclaimed author, consultant, and speaker, founded his consulting company in 1973. Based on the phenomenal popularity of Coonradt's workshops, he wrote and published The Game of Work book shortly thereafter.

It has been updated and reprinted continuously since then. Coonradt is internationally recognized in the fields of goal setting and profit improvement on five continents and has authored three other management "must-reads": Scorekeeping for Success, Managing the Obvious, and The Four Laws of Debt-Free Prosperity. He is a contributing author to the best-selling Chicken Soup for the Soul series, as well as a founding member and frequent lecturer at the School of Entrepreneurship, Brigham Young University, Marriott School of Management.

Lisa Ann Thomson has dealt with words for more than a decade as a writer, editor, and web content manager. She has written about a wide variety of subjects, from modern business to Mayan archeology and from international travel to local home construction. Working with the web, Lisa has been a product manager, content manager, information architect, and producer. She currently lives in Salt Lake City, Utah, and is a full-time writer and consultant.

Read an Excerpt

What is it that we love about certain movies?

Think about Miracle, which is based on the story of the 1980 U.S. Hockey Team and their dramatic Olympic gold medal victory. Remember the Titans is the story of a newly integrated high school and its football team in 1971 as they overcome prejudice among themselves and the community to achieve an undefeated season. What about We Are Marshall and its telling of a young coach determined to rebuild the football program at Marshall University after seventy-five members of its football team and coaching staff were killed in a plane crash in 1970? Who doesn't feel inspired by these stories, particularly knowing they are based on real events and real people? Even fictional characters like Akeelah, her teacher, and her principal in Akeelah and the Bee make us cheer as we watch this young girl rise above her circumstances to excel and win the National Spelling Bee. And one of my favorites is The Mighty Ducks-the tale of a ragtag group of teen hockey players and their unlikely coach who turn a losing team into a championship team.
