Engagement IS NOT enough
Lack of employee engagement is like a cancer, eating away at your organization's vital organs. It saps your organization's strength, directly affecting your organization's ability to achieve the levels of customer satisfaction, productivity and profitability you know you could achieve. Keith Ayers presents a compelling argument that the focus on engagement has failed because leaders think engagement can be bought through bonuses, benefits, and share options. That is like trying to cure cancer with an aspirin or band-aid. The cure for the cancer of disengagement is for leaders to look in the mirror at the leadership they provide. In this in-depth exploration of the leadership skills needed to get every employee to want to perform at their best, Ayers challenges leaders to stop focusing on engagement, and set their sights on igniting the fire of passion in their employees.$35*

The 8 Dimensions of Leadership
The 8 Dimensions of Leadership is the first book to explore leadership through the lens of Inscape's third generation DiSC model of human behaviour. This title is designed to paint an inclusive picture of the varied approaches that make for strong leadership. It primarily focuses on the interpersonal realm of leadership and helps readers identify which of the eight approaches comes most naturally to them. Sugerman, Scullard and Wilhelm show readers how to determine which of the eight DiSC dimensions aligns best with their leadership approach: Pioneering, Energizing, Affirming, Inclusive, Humble, Deliberative, Resolute or Commanding. The authors explore the strengths and weaknesses of each style in depth. But they also emphasize that any single-dimensional approach to leadership is incomplete. It's not enough to just build on your strengths. To be truly effective you need to incorporate all eight dimensions into your leadership approach. This book will give readers new, scientifically-based insights into what makes them tick as leaders and show them how they can continue to hone their skills.$35*
The Five Dysfunctions of a Team
In The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, Patrick Lencioni once again offers a leadership fable that is as enthralling and instructive as his first two best-selling books, ‘The Five Temptations of a CEO’ and ‘The Four Obsessions of an Extraordinary Executive’. This time, he turns his keen intellect and storytelling power to the fascinating, complex world of teams. Kathryn Petersen, Decision Tech’s CEO, faces the ultimate leadership crisis: Uniting a team in such disarray that it threatens to bring down the entire company. Will she succeed? Will she be fired? Will the company fail? Lencioni’s utterly gripping tale serves as a timeless reminder that leadership requires as much courage as it does insight. Throughout the story, Lencioni reveals the five dysfunctions which go to the very heart of why teams even the best ones-often struggle. He outlines a powerful model and actionable steps that can be used to overcome these common hurdles and build a cohesive, effective team. Just as with his other books, Lencioni has written a compelling fable with a powerful yet deceptively simple message for all those who strive to be exceptional team leaders.$30*
