From Library Journal
What movitvates people to work productively? What factors prevent or inhibit good work habits? These are two studies that examine these questions. Psychologist Eisenberger analyzes the psychological, economic, and sociological factors that had produced a strong work ethic in United States history and the conditions that led to its decline. He compares the diminishing American work ethic with the productivity of the Japanese. Case studies of Henry Ford, Estee Lauder, and Chuck Yeager--all followers of the work ethic--are also presented. According to the author, employers, parents, and educators should contribute to reviving the work ethic by rewarding increased effort at home and on the job. Ludeman, a business consultant, approaches the work ethic from the framework of management techniques. She is an advocate of "the Worth Ethic," a "belief in your indelible self-worth and potential worth of others" and discusses strategies to promote the Worth Ethic within a company. These include recognizing individual's achievements at work; promoting high ethical standards; encouraging honest and open behavior; finding meaning in work tasks; and encouraging collaboration on work projects. Both authors offer positive methods to increase productivity. Their books are recommended to business collections.
