Excellent Book!

This is a "must-read" book for every person already in a management position and every person just starting out in management. Following this book the business world will become a much better place for management, employees and customers.

This book offers real world examples of how to engage and motive people in the workplace. The practice tools and exercises in this book will hold your attention; this book explains in plain English exactly what needs to be done to succeed as a motivating leader.

The Cornerstones of Engaging Leadership is well written, easy to read, and makes perfect sense. I look forward to reading more books from Mr. Casey Wilson.

"Discretionary effort is the difference between how well people actually perform and how well they are capable of performing." When genuine interest is invested in people it is far easier to tap the discretionary effort that is harbored. An engaged leader knows this.

Somewhere along the corporate path, far too many leaders and managers lose sight of the importance of individuals' motivations for working and contributing. Most of us have worked for disengaged leaders or managers who never asked what motivated us. This book presents in a very simple manner a how-to to motivate people to give their best by engaging in their interests, motivations and passions at work.

I intend to keep Casey's book at work as a handbook to reinforce the keys of engagement. A great read.

Casey shares with us critical, practical, actionable and powerful insights that lead to increased profits, performance and productivity as well as long-term healthy growth of an enterprise.

Having been a successful business owner, I have experienced first hand numerous benefits associated with having engaged employees as well have also experienced the losses and destruction that occurs when employees become disengaged.

Heck, in my own career, I myself personally have been both engaged and disengaged. Believe me, engagement is far better. In the book, Casey nails it, showing us what leads to disengagement. But then he also goes onto show us how to increase engagement in a very practical way.

In my mind, this book is not just a nice to read but a MUST read.
