To get the most out of a workforce, stop coddling and start fostering accountability. That’s the message from Cy Wakeman, one of the world’s foremost HR thinkers and author of the new book, No Ego: How Leaders Can Cut the Cost of Workplace Drama, End Entitlement and Drive Big Results.
Brimming with keen — and often humorous — insight into what makes people and teams work more efficiently, the former therapist Wakeman gives leaders the communication tools and strategies to turn an office into a happy, productive place, full of people who thrive amid change and do their jobs well, without the drama. How much more effective would you, your teams and your organization be without the entitlement, mind games and drama that plague so many workplaces? Find out by learning Wakeman’s road-tested leadership strategies for creating and sustaining a no-excuses, high- accountability culture full of high-performing, “emotionally inexpensive” people.
