Have you ever wished you could only somehow get your people to tackle their work with a more positive attitude, a little more initiative, a shared feeling of ownership, and personal responsibility for their success? Here is a one-of-a-kind book that will inspire leaders like you to overcome problems and threats, break through to higher performance levels, and generate new enthusiasm in employees. The Starfish Files uses an easily read story about some notes on business management and a leaders challenges to present a message that goes much deeper than good-sounding advice. The book describes a low-ranking manager with a somewhat unprofitable firm who was struggling with performance challenges and wondering how to produce improved results. During a seaside vacation, he became inspired and captured his thoughts in writing, thinking the material would be beneficial to other managers dealing with the same problems. He gives the notes to a friend, a successful author a and business professional and asks him to take a serious look. More notes followed and The Starfish Files was created a lightly edited but completely authentic account of the notes. The Starfish Files reveal his uncanny knack for creating a high-performance work climate in which everyone has star potential and employees truly do accomplish amazing things.
