Anyone who has ever been in a leadership position has struggled with the notion of getting optimum performance from your people. FULL ENGAGEMENT by Brian Tracy will be a huge help in that regard. The world of work is far from being a perfect system. People are often promoted due to their ability to perform a specific job. For example, if you're in the widget building business, you might be inclined to promote your best widget maker (let's call him Wally), to supervisor of the widget production line. But the truth is, just because Wally was a widget wizard, doesn't mean he is qualified to lead others.

We see this sort of thing happening all the time. In my career in the military, I saw it constantly. In the military, if you hang around long enough, and don't get into trouble, you will soon find yourself supervising others. Unfortunately, although there are some great ones, the military is laden with those that are not well suited for leadership. We also see this in local politics. Perhaps the worst "leader" I have ever personally known was a woman elected to county office with a staff of 30 or so people. She was elected to County Clerk because she had some knowledge of real estate and the court system. Unfortunately, she had no understanding whatsoever of how to lead people. Turnover was a constant problem for her and those unfortunate few that did try to tough it out working for her were the most miserable, un-motivated group of people you could ever imagine.

When I think of my favorite books on business, leadership or self development, several of Brian Tracy's books come to mind. This book will join the ranks of those favorites. FULL ENGAGEMENT takes an in-depth look at how to - as the subtitle suggests - Inspire, Motivate and Bring Out the Best in Your People.

Brian Tracy has been the top influence in my own business success over the last decade+ in my life, and his latest book is another winning resource that can immensely help all managers and business leaders. In fact the topics he covered, and more importantly, how Brian explains them in "Full Engagement!", would make for a great core seminar content for managerial/leadership skills training for today's business leaders.

In what we often find in modern businesses, with short-attention span/poor-communication skills from supervisors to employees to customers, the concepts that Brian covers in "Full Engagement!" can provide a Much-needed wake-up call, and roadmap, to help companies improve internal values, leadership tone, and business success.

Bringing out the best in your people (or in my case as a solo entrepreneur, my students/customers), is a critical success factor in surviving and thriving in these tough economic times. Brian's in-depth coverage of the "a to z" of successful communications and leadership skills in this latest book makes for a success foundation that should be on every business leader's desktop.

Back when I was a consultant to 140+ Fortune-500 companies, I always found that "communications problems" ranked as a top concern within organizations. Digging deeper, I often found that it was the nonverbals, the coercive values, the dysfunctional communications that caused many problems in companies, which lead to poor customer service and sales, costing competitive advantage.

Were I still consulting with client companies, Brian's "Full Engagement!" would be a book I'd definitely buy a dozen+ copies of, to give to the executive team, and to key middle managers for their review...

This is just the right book at the right time. Look nobody has had it tougher than our workers during the past couple of years. They have taken the brunt of this recession what with layoffs, pay cuts, being over worked to make up for those who lost their jobs to just plain constant worry over the possibility of them losing their jobs. To that add the dehumanization of Lean manufacturing and other robotic time and cost saving leave your brain at the door measures, it's time that someone did something good for the American worker. And Brian Tracy has done exactly that with his new book Full Engagement!
Tracy gets it, he knows that the best way to get the most from workers is to fire them up, is to make their jobs matter, its showing them how to win, its showing them how to succeed and yes its showing them how to be important.
This new book is full of easy to understand ideas for motivating all of your employees by simply doing what's right. Tracy shows us how to make our people feel important through politeness, courtesy and constructive mentoring. He claims that by making our people feel like winners, we make them winners. He demonstrates how something as simple as being very clear in our communications is the most important tool we have for getting our point across.
From the book: Five Steps to Winning
1. Clear goals: Make sure you use the SMART model when setting goals;
S= Specific
M= Measurable
A= Achievable
R= Realistic
T= Time bound
2. Concrete measures: Use milestones to show people their progress.
3. The Success Experience: Get them on the track to success. Even if you have to start with small simple jobs, make them successful
4. Recognition of Achievement: Everybody loves to get recognized.
