Overview

A business fable packed with hard-won wisdom, The Invisible Employee follows a group of people who live and work together on a mysterious island. In these pages, managers learn how to combat one of the most common negative attitudes in business—that smart employees keep their heads down and never do more than is asked.

Bestselling authors Adrian Gostick and Chester Elton illustrate that invisible employees undermine our efforts at building great companies. And they show how effective leaders change this mind-set by engaging their people in their cause and finding a way to bring out their best by setting clear goals, seeing the right behaviors, and celebrating every success along the way. The end result is an organization of productive employees who feel noticed, valued and appreciated. In other words, they feel visible.

In today's competitive environment, all of us are looking for the next big product, the next big capability or solution. But great managers are turning back to the basics. They are finding that recognizing people leads to a more engaged workforce and a more successful business. The Invisible Employee shows you how to bring out the hidden potential in your team and your business.
