The authors highlight the hypocrisy found within most companies... a hypocrisy that has killed trust and choked off employee initiative. -- Robert Dorsey, Ph.D., Executive Consultant, IBM Global Services

From the Publisher

Give-To-Get Leadership is anchored in the most basic rule of human relationships - people give to get. The book provides leaders the means to enhance performance and profit by offering to pay their employees the non-monetary currencies of the Hidden Paycheck.

Format: Paperback
If you're familiar with the literature and the anecdotes popular in the field of leadership, motivation, or human behavior, don't waste your time with this book. You'll be frustrated in your quest for something new. If this is a brand-new field for you, this book will give you a good survey of the stories, old saws, and oft-repeated phrases and concepts. Many of these gleanings, though not all, are cited in the notes section at the back of the book.
I suspect that this book was self-published using the services of book designers who either don't know what they're doing or think they're really creative. Trying to read an entire book in a sans-serif typeface was hard on the eyes. Chapter starts were not strongly called out, making it difficult to separate sections of the book to organize thinking as a reader.
The flow of the text was interrupted a number of times with the presentation of extraneous information that really didn't contribute to the author's points. I got the feeling that there was a lot of filler in these pages.
The authors describe categories of Equity Sensitivity-Benevolents, Equity Sensitives, and Entitleds-to explain that there's a balance to be achieved. Give to others and they'll give to you. With my knowledge of leadership, I found these descriptions to be relatively shallow, causing me to get bored and distracted. It was a challenge for me to make it all the way to the last pages of the book. It doesn't take 300 pages to state that people work for more than money and that the relationship with the immediate supervisor is paramount.

Format: Paperback
"Give to Get Leadership" holds the secret to getting the performance you want from your employees. Huseman and Hayes have created a tremendously practical and readable book that will open your eyes to the real needs of your people -- the Hidden Paycheck they expect from you. As a leadership coach, I see the effect of not meeting these needs all the time: dissatisfaction, suspicion, lethargy and more. Read this book and learn how to keep your employees loyal, motivated and productive.
