5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Motivated Employee by Gary Brose, July 16, 2012

The Ultimate Motivated Employee by Gary Brose

(7 Steps to a more productive workforce)

Gary’s book includes quotes and his comments as they relate to motivation. Here is one I liked:

“A boss creates fear, a leader confidence. A boss fixes blame, a leader corrects mistakes. A boss knows all, a leader asks questions. A boss makes work drudgery, a leader makes it interesting. A boss is interested in himself or herself, a leader is interested in the group.” Russell H. Ewing

– And another:

“Surround yourself with the best people you can find, delegate authority, and don’t interfere as long as the policy you’ve decided upon is being carried out.” Ronald Reagan

Gary says Delegate responsibility-it says that you TRUST THE EMPLOYEE


“In looking for people to hire, you look for three qualities: integrity, intelligence and energy. And if they don’t have the first, the other two will kill you.” Warren Buffet

There is also a great excerpt from Simon Sinek in SIMON SINEK SPEAKS ABOUT LEADERSHIP

Gary also discusses a couple of radical concepts including “Delinking reviews and raises” and restructuring compensation to include greater pay for performance factors.

I have so much to say about this book. First of all I am in the corporate environment daily and can see all of this information valuable to the corporate world and all that are under him. I learned a lot about Leadership and most of the quotes and stories kept me motivated to be all “I can be.” Not just at work but also in the outside world. I have been told that I am “over-qualified” for positions and I just don’t get that. I have been over looked in many organizations and still it boggles my brain. I know if I were a leader I would follow this book to a “T.” It is of my understanding that bosses want to find out and tell their employees “what they do wrong.” That is not the way to do it. I know that Praise does work though. I would gladly hire Gary if I were the CEO of any Corporation. I believe in what he writes and I value the hard work that was put into his book.
