The groundbreaking guide to inspiring 100% performance from employees--updated with expanded research findings
In this new edition of his guide to unleashing employees' full potential, Mark Murphy explains why true employee motivation is not achieved by focusing on making your people "happy." The most effective leaders are the ones who respect their people enough to push them to deliver real results--to become Hundred Percenters.
Basing its conclusions on a detailed study of more than 500,000 leaders and employees, Hundred Percenters, Second Edition, provides the tools and techniques--and the rationale behind them--to help you create an army of employees who don't just do their best—but who also deliver results.
