Works a We Thing has totally transformed performance feedback in our organization. As a result of this book and implementing the process performance management now works. Performance management is no longer an outdated, useless exercise that doesn't affect change. Employees agree to the work required of their role and the organization understands how work affects employees' lives. It all starts with reading the book and then implementing the web-based, easy to use process.

At its core, "Work's a WE thing" offers a simple premise: Your relationship with an organization is based on mutual attraction (you both must find a relationship attractive) and gaining agreement (you both must agree to the terms of the relationship). If any aspect of this breaks down, then so will the relationship. Though this sounds simple, organizations and their associates grapple with it everyday. At the heart of the matter is the fact that what motivates an individual is radically different from what motivates the organization. The beauty of the work is that it bridges the gap between these two worlds.

Unlike many career management books that offer pat answers to these very complex issues, "Work's a WE thing" provides you with rich, but straightforward, frameworks to help you self identify the aspects of work that bring you fulfillment and how to develop an understanding of what the organization is looking for even when the organization is unclear itself.

For instance: the personal fulfillment analysis goes way beyond salary to include aspects of the work at hand, those you're working with, and outside work factors. Although these are issues that you personally and deeply care about; the organization will be ambivalent about them at best. It's looking for performance that is altogether different.

So how do you get what you want? It gets back to making yourself attractive to the organization. To do so you have to speak its language and make an attractive offer in trade. Interestingly, once you understand how to communicate more effectively to the organization many past challenges will begin to make more sense, and therefore how the situation could have been influenced for the better also becomes apparent.

Danny McCall has created a readable text for employers interested in improving relationships between supervisory personnel and employees through dialog between two friends, one of which is afraid she will be fired.

The concepts are introduced in an easy to read book packed full of information, concepts, strategies and solutions. Every employer should purchase this guide to better communication and a cost effective productive workforce for every supervisor and manager.

Employees, particularly those who are worried about being terminated because they feel they are not producing according to what they think their supervisor wants, or employees who are not happy with their job function but wish to stay with their current employer should read this book.

Finally, someone has figured out how to make what organizations want and what individuals need in the workplace. For over 20 years, I've struggled with explaining how to prioritize work and what I really needed individuals to do in order to continuously improve. Additionally, I've struggled with trying to understand what my leaders really needed from me and how I can continue to improve my work in their eyes.

Danny McCall get's it. Once you read this book you will wonder why no one has ever put this into words before now. Danny is brilliant! I'm sold!

Danny McCall and his staff have done an outstanding service in developing and publishing this manual.
The concept makes sense, and is easy to adapt. The book is easy to read and is logical in presentation.
Go, Danny!
