Summary of Ownership Thinking
How to End Entitlement and Create a Culture of Accountability, Purpose, and Profit
Teach your employees to love your company for more than just their paychecks
Whether your experience bears this out or not, consultant Brad Hams believes that a sense of entitlement has swept across America, ruining the nation’s values and workers. He’s retaliating with a plan to win back the hearts of employees who now care more about their paychecks than their employers. Hams wants to replace what he sees as a sense of entitlement with a sense of ownership by getting workers emotionally involved in their companies’ financial results. While his suggestions verge on the simplistic and some might backfire on you, arcing as they do from paternalistic to even patronizing, Hams does offer ideas for motivating employees to change their attitudes from me-first to company-first. getAbstract suggests Hams’s training concepts to executives who want to teach staffers to focus on the fiscal health of their employers.
