"Murphy finds that most workplaces are brimming with untapped talent. Only it's suppressed by goal-setting that discourages big ideas and leaders who focus on happiness rather than greatness."
We’ve all heard the saying that a happy
employee is a motivated employee. But
what if that’s not true?
Leadership IQ CEO Mark Murphy says the
“happy employee” philosophy doesn’t work.
A study of more than 500,000 leaders and employees
shows that despite the billions of dollars
organizations spend to satisfy and engage
workers, 72% of employees admit they’re still
not giving their best effort at work. Rather,
it’s leaders who focus on making their people
great—not happy—who inspire Hundred
If you talk to the employees behind today’s
great innovations, you’re unlikely to hear, “I
was inspired by a boss who coddles me.” Instead
you’d probably hear, “My boss challenges
me and pushes me past my limits.” Most
workplaces are brimming with untapped talent—
only it’s suppressed by leaders who fail
to connect with and challenge employees to
unleash their true potential.
Here are just a few of the big ideas in Hundred
- The harder the goals you set, the
better your employees will perform
- You should never use a Compliment
Sandwich to deliver feedback
- Talented Terrors—people with great
skills and a bad attitude—can destroy
your company culture
- Before you can start motivating
Hundred Percenters, you have to
stop demotivating them
- You should never ask your employees
if they’re “satisfied”
This groundbreaking book debunks management
fads that don’t apply to today’s workplace
and provides the facts, theories, and direction
you need to become a 100% Leader.
Apply Murphy’s leadership lessons and you’ll
see innovation, productivity, and profits soar,
while employee turnover rates plummet.
