Format: Hardcover
This book begins with the clear and compelling message that engagement is inextricably linked to high performance. As we know that high performance equates to a robust bottom line, it naturally follows that as conscientious business leaders we should want to know how to create high levels of employee engagement. This book lays out ten steps that will help you get there. Moreover, the book is written in an easy to understand, highly readable style that makes you want to embrace its ideas and get started. So many business books leave the reader with the nagging sense that there is a huge gap between the advice offered and the reality of implementation. Louder than Words really is a book that contains achievable concrete recommendations. As the numerous clients and devotees of Bob Kelleher would attest, it is worth its weight in gold. My recommendation is to get it, read it, and follow it. You will be glad you did.

I picked up `Louder than Words' hoping to find a little help solving the puzzle of employee engagement. Kelleher's ten steps have changed what was the mystery of creating an employee engagement culture into an action plan that is easy to follow, realistic, and effective. His writing is clear and provides real-world examples that bring the concepts to life. I highly recommend this book.

Every time I pick up this book I learn something new or reminded of a key component of employee engagement. It is a critical time for companies to address employee engagement instead of worrying solely about the bottom line in this economy. Now is the time to determine what distinguishes you from the competition in terms of engagement. Great reading!

About five years into my HR career, I can honestly say the advice, topics and real-world examples in Louder than Words is spot on! I was reminded of some key tenets of employee engagement, but was introduced to so many more in Louder than Words. It's about time someone wrote an Organizational Development book in plain English, one that employees at all levels in a company can comprehend and take away immediate action items to implement in their own organization. Louder than Words takes employee engagement to the next level--the top!

I've just read "Louder Than Words" by Bob Kelleher. This is a terrific book! It's a fast read "Primer for those who are new to the principles of Employee Engagement. And for those who have started Employee Engagement programs, it is an excellent reference book for ways to update or refresh your program.

These ideas work. I personally saw them in action at ENSR Corporation.

Our company's leadership team has been focusing on employee engagement ever since exposure to Marcus Buckingham and his classic work "Now Discover Your Strengths" a number of years ago. This work is true to the subject and adds a number of practical steps and measurement tools to help management implement and maintain a higher level of engagement. The title says it well and this book should help align our management team's efforts to improve the level of engagement across the company; especially in our remote offices where challenges are often the greatest.
