PRIMED TO PERFORM: How To Build the Highest Performing Cultures Through the Science of Total Motivation by Neel Doshi & Lindsay McGregor. Copyright © 2015 by Neel Doshi & Lindsay McGregor. Published by arrangement with HarperBusiness, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers
Neel Doshi and Lindsay McGregor offer sterling advice on engagement, motivation and performance: Provide play, purpose and potential, not bonuses.
Consultants Neel Doshi and Lindsay McGregor bring together just about everything worthwhile about employee engagement, motivation and workplace performance. They offer data and evidence to support each claim and piece of advice. Their entertaining case studies inform readers throughout, illustrating the three essential “direct motivators” that every company should use to build long-term success and the three “indirect motivators” that lead to lower performance. Though this manual can be repetitive, getAbstract recommends it highly. For leaders at every level, HR professionals, compensation executives, consultants, entrepreneurs and students, this could be today’s best work about motivating performance.
In this summary, you will learn
- How six motivators drive people at work: three that lead to high performance and three that cause low performance, and
- How to build a culture of positive motivators while eliminating negative motivators.
