Format: Hardcover
Business is characterized by a lot of common sense solutions. But in fact, the many books that are released articulate only the particular view and experiences of the author. A scientific based book about how to understand and change behavior in organizations was lacking. Aubrey Daniels has made the remarkable accomplishment of writing a book that is both strongly based in the science of behavior analysis, as easy to read and to use. This is one of the best books that has been written about business, also because it demonstrates that business is behavior.

Excellent! It is a genuine relief to find a book of this calibre. If the title leads some to believe they will learn a magical, quick fix technique, then they will be disappointed. Those that genuinely seek to bring about change and improvement should read this, apply as much as they possibly can... and then read it again. Invaluable.

Whether you are implementing a behavioral safety process or need to address morale/production concerns at work or just want to get your teenagers to clean their room, this book is for you! One of the best guides on how to motivate people to achieve. This doesn't deal with manipulation - on the contrary. The book shows how to apply positive reinforcement to get a person or organization to where they want to be.

I had the opportunity to listen to Aubrey Daniels speak at a leadership workshop. Couldn't wait to read the book and gain more insights in the "ABC's" of positive reinforcement. This isn't just another "flavor of the month".

One of the very best, if not the best, books on motivating a group of people that I have ever read. I've just started implementing some of the stratagies and I'm already seeing positive results. The book is easy to read and understand.

This book describes a process that if implemented properly can have a dramatic impact on you organization.
The book is easy to read and understand. There is an over emphasis on B.F. Skinner, consequences and positive reinforcement that is necessary to help manager develop new skills. The new skill is catching people doing the right things and telling them about it. By unleashing this process in an engineering drafting department the throughput more than doubled, projects are delivered complete the first time 98% of the time, and target dates are met or delivered early.
The process works. Some people do this naturally, but many of us are so focused on results we forget that people attain those results for us. Some day every manager will manage this way.
