Pick Up the Gum Wrapper
Why is it that most people start a job with high hopes but eventually become disillusioned? With mounting pressure for results, companies can’t afford employees who are going through the motions. The truth is, most employees want to do their best at something they enjoy, feel valued for their contributions, and make an impact. The majority of leaders understand this, but making it happen can be a mystery.
In Pick Up the Gum Wrapper, Joe Bertotto walks you through three proven steps to building a compelling workplace. With concentrated effort, these steps—assessing and leveraging each employee’s unique strengths, setting clear behavioral expectations to unify the team, and applying effective leadership practices—will keep everyone’s enthusiasm high by building a workplace that’s positive, productive, and rewarding. Filled with examples and tools, this book shows you how to ensure that everyone is successful at work each day.
