Push employees to their full potential with"tough love" leadership! "Provides the tools managers need to take 'average' employees and create a cultureof accountable, fully engaged people.

"Heavily-researched and loaded with tools and examples, this book shows you how to challenge your employees to achieve the kind of extraordinary results and innovations that every CEO dreams about. Every leader needs to read this book!" Ned Fitch, CEO, Kalahari Tea "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." Training Magazine We've all heard the saying that a happyemployee is a motivated employee. Butwhat 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 employeesshows that despite the billions of dollarsorganizations spend to satisfy and engageworkers, 72% of employees admit they're stillnot giving their best effort at work. Rather,it's leaders who focus on making their peoplegreat-not happy-who inspire HundredPercenter performance. If you talk to the employees behind today'sgreat innovations, you're unlikely to hear, "Iwas inspired by a boss who coddles me." Insteadyou'd probably hear, "My boss challengesme and pushes me past my limits."
