Book of the Month – First, Break All the Rules – What the World’s Greatest Managers Do Differently

What separates the greatest managers from all the rest?

They actually have vastly different styles and backgrounds. Yet despite their differences, great managers share one common trait: They don’t hesitate to break virtually every rule held sacred by conventional wisdom.

First, Break All the Rules, initially published in 1999, established the science of employee engagement. This longtime management bestseller presents the remarkable findings of Gallup’s massive in-depth study of great managers and focuses on managers who excel at turning each individual employee’s talent into high performance.

The book explains how the best managers select an employee for talent rather than for skills or experience, set expectations, build on each person’s unique strengths rather than trying to fix his or her weaknesses, and get the best performance out of their teams.

Along with updated meta-analytic research, this re-release of First, Break All the Rules includes access to the Clifton StrengthsFinder assessment, which reveals people’s top themes of talent, and to Gallup’s Q12 employee engagement survey, the most effective measure of employee engagement and its impact on the outcomes that matter most to your business.
