Based on insights from the data that drives Fortune Magazine’s 100 Best Companies to Work for, and similar lists in 45 countries on six continents, Trust Rules will show you how to lead your team to achieve extraordinary business results.
This manager’s handbook ranked #1 Best Seller during its first week of launch on Amazon.co.uk. (International Business category) and looks set to become a business classic.
Senior Great Place to Work leader and management expert Bob Lee has studied Trust Index© survey feedback from two million employees across eighty countries to reveal the manager actions and attitudes that have the greatest impact on how their people experience the work place. The result is a comprehensive, easy-to-use guide to developing committed and high-performing employees who are genuinely passionate about what they do. Bob explains:
“I grew tired of buying management books that I could never find time to finish reading, so I wanted Trust Rules to be a book that a busy manager could read in ninety minutes max. When one reviewer wrote that ‘…there’s not a single sentence too much … it’s ideal for the managers who don’t usually read books’, I knew I’d nailed it!”
At just 27,000 words and 156 pages this may be one of the few management books you’ll actually find the time to read from cover-to-cover!
And why should you invest that time? Although every manager can be a great manager, most aren’t. That’s why great managers get noticed. If you want to rise above the ordinary and lead your team to achieve extraordinary results, Trust Rules will show you how.
