(New York, June 1, 2015)
The Gallup Organization has found that only 29 percent of employees are truly engaged in the work they do. That’s like an engine running at less than one third of its power. Now imagine a company where eight out of ten people are truly engaged. What would this mean to productivity, morale, retention, and ability to recruit top talent? The proven path to that transformation is revealed in Performance Breakthrough: The Four Secrets of Passionate Organizations, 2nd Edition (Highpoint Executive Publishing; hardcover, $24.99, 978- 0-9861585-2-0; e-book, $9.99, 978-0-9861585-0-6).
Revised and enhanced from the popular first edition by nationally recognized speaker and consultant, Mike Goldman, Performance Breakthrough 2nd Edition reveals the four secrets for creating a more passionate, productive, and profitable organization. “I’ve worked with dozens of companies over the last twenty-five years, and from large organizations such as Disney, Levi Strauss, and Polo Ralph Lauren to the local accounting firm, hotel, or plumber—the largest opportunity for improvement was helping people better realize their potential,” says Goldman. “New strategies, processes, and systems are certainly important, but people will trump them every time.”
Performance Breakthrough’s message is communicated in the form of a fictional story to help make its concepts real and easily understood, augmented by new case studies, summaries, checklists, and other tools that will help an organization of any size create positive energy, find passion, and achieve its own Performance Breakthrough.
As Verne Harnish, CEO, Gazelles, and author of Scaling Up (Rockefeller Habits 2.0) states in the book’s foreword, “Performance Breakthrough provides a framework to drive enthusiasm and engagement throughout your organization. This framework is based on simple, actionable, and inexpensive ideas, not high-level concepts. The story, case studies, and tools you’re about to learn will both motivate you to inject more passion into your organization, and provide you with specific steps to make it happen.”
