Got ten minutes a day? -- Then you can create a more successful, more collaborative business culture!



As a manager, you've tried to keep things positive, but nothing seems to work. You can't control the economy, what's going on in your employees' lives, or other factors--so what can you do to build and sustain a winning culture in your workplace?



Whether you are a mid-level manager or a senior executive, Make Work Great offers the blueprint for building a positive, motivating, and productive workplace in any kind of organization. In this definitive guide for today’s multicultural, decentralized business environment, Ed Muzio, award-winning author, internationally recognized workplace improvement expert, and consultant, delivers state-of-the-art analysis, advice and guidance, and scores of team-building and motivation exercises that you and your staff can do in ten minutes a day--without disrupting routines or interrupting important business.



You can't force others to change, but you can control what you do and with whom you engage at work to:



  • Build a positive outlook, one-on-one

  • Enlist a network within your organization to improve your business culture

  • Strengthen peer relationships and improve problem-solving capabilities

  • Take back control of workplace morale and efficiency

  • Inspire others to support, encourage, and collaborate with their team members



There are lots of excuses given for why businesses fail to make the most of their most valuable resource--the people whose work creates the value that drives the bottom line. With Make Work Great, you hold in your hands the key to unlocking your people's potential to exceed expectations, creating synergies out of the disparate talents and abilities they bring to the table, and making your business better able to anticipate opportunities and respond to challenges.

    Changing the way America works

    Never before has an author expressed so succinctly how to organize people in the information age. The practical tools and techniques contained in this book are even more crucial to organizations today when people are having to do more and more with less and less. This book will change how America works.

    Quick read with high ROI - useful to anyone who is employed or wants to be

    Make Work Great takes the overwhelming and makes it simple and obvious. Using the techniques in this book any person can change the culture of their workplace, to make it great. The author, Ed Musio, masterfully distills a hugely complex and intimidating subject, rendering it into a simple practical guide on how to change an organization's culture. No pomp and circumstance, just a practical step by step guide that really works. The approach outlined in this book will be particularly important in the era of social and professional networking.

    The book itself is a quick read with high ROI - learn how you can become a culture builder from any role in any organization. I wish I'd had this book earlier in my career.

    A Great New Tool Kit

    In my thirty plus years as a trainer and consultant to leaders in a variety of companies, I have been constantly asked to recommend books that could help someone be a better leader or manager. Before now there has not been a single book that captures what I consider to be most, if not all, the essential keys to success. I have used these tools, taught these tools and, to have them all in one place, it is like getting a handbook to professional and organizational success.
