It’s ironic that we sometimes pick up just the right book at the right time. It speaks to us. It provides practical advice. It contributes to our personal growth and success. Help Them Grow or Watch Them Go is one such book. Co-authored by Beverly Kaye and Julie Winkle Giulioni, this book is an essential read for managers who are attempting to retain their star performers….or who are trying to encourage their average performers to excel. As the term employee “engagement” becomes more and more the focus, the information in this book will help managers assist their employees in their career development. It contains lots of “how to” hints and lists of questions to use in conversations with employees. So, you’ don’t have to try to think of everything yourself–this book lays it out for you!
A good side benefit of reading the book is that you, as an individual or if you are not a manager, can use the questions and the suggestions for own growth! If your stuck at a place in your job and you are looking for ways to be more engaged, be more satisfied, and be more passionate, answering the questions may encourage you to take the initiative to create your own career path! As a leadership trainer and coach, Help Them Grow or Watch Them Go, gave me lots of ideas for supporting my clients and trainees in my classes.
Written in an easy to read style with lots of great examples and wonderful quotes for motivation, this book will be a great addition to your professional library. I had the privilege of reviewing this book for the publisher, Berrett-Koehler, as it was being developed. I found it to send a very positive message about enhancing the performance of our employees and helping others to be tryly engaged in their work.
The official release date is September 18. Be one of the first ones to purchase this book and put it to use! You’ll love it!
