HR Works: Get Winning Workplace Results by Winning Over Your Employees

In many workplaces across the country, managers feel pressured by company leaders to achieve specific goals or levels of productivity, and become focused on winning no matter what it takes, using motivation by fear to get their employees to work faster, harder and for longer hours.

These tactics may work in the short term, but lose their effectiveness over the long haul as employees will eventually tune out, burnout, or simply seek employment elsewhere, thus creating morale and turnover issues—a recipe for disaster for any employer.

Our guests on Episode 38 of HR Works:The Podcast for Human Resources want to change that. Karin Hurt, Founder of Let’s Grow Leaders, and David Dye, President of Trailblaze, Inc, have authored a new book—Winning Well: A Manager’s Guide to Getting Results-Without Losing Your Soul—which lays the groundwork and provides tools for managers who want to be known for getting results, yet also be someone whom employees will both respect and want to work with.
