Book Description

19 Dec 2007

Look around your business. Are your people committed to your goals? Or are they merely complying with them? Imagine how much further you could go if everyone knew where they were going and actually wanted to get there ...

It’s just common sense that the more committed people are to their work, the more they’re going to put in and the more your business will get out. The evidence bears this out: engagement levels predict profitability. But how do you make sure people are on board? The Extra Mile shows you how to achieve that extra competitive edge by harnessing the commitment of your people, and engaging them with your aims.

 

The Extra Mile is the result of four years of research into engagement by a joint team from Cass Business School and Towers Perrin. This ambitious and wide ranging project drew on the results of various studies and surveys which together totalled 33 million respondents. These hard-hitting statistics were supplemented by more than 50 in-depth interviews with executives and leaders drawn from a variety of business sectors. You will hear from some of them in their own words in this compelling book which distils the results of the research and the interviews into a compelling and engaging read that will make managers think again about how to get their teams to go that all-important extra mile.

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally Engaging. 25 Sep 2008
Format:Hardcover
An associate recommended "The Extra Mile" to me and it is excellent.

I have spent my career helping organisations to implement change and Macleod and Brady have managed to bring a fresh perspective to the crowded shelves of Organisational Development books. What's so good about this book is that the authors don't dress anything up, they just tell you what you need to think about and even provide you with a series of handy lists of what to do next as you work through the processes. The quotes from the senior executives and business leaders they interviewed whilst conducting their research are also compelling.

Everyone has an opinion on what creates culture within an organisation, but very few people have done the legwork to explain how it can be changed on purpose. By focusing on the twin forces of Engagement and Alignment, the authors have made a significant contribution to the thinking and made it all so easy to understand and develop.

I am recommending this book to all of my colleagues and associates involved in orchestrating change in their organisations. Invaluable!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lining us up 25 Sep 2010
By Langley
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
We are all looking for the next magic bullet in business. Simplicity is always going to be in the top quadrant, but so are some other issues. One of those is making sure that everyone in a business is facing in the right direction and pulling on the same rope. Translating that into business language for a moment, means engagement and alignment. Put another way, make sure that everyone in the business is engaged and then you have energy. Make sure that everyone in the business is aligned, meaning that they all understand what their job is, how to do it and why it is important. This excellent book is an explanation of those processes and how businesses need to harness them. Well written, with an engaging style. If I had a criticism the it would be that there are so many facts, sometimes they overwhelm the underlying message.
