Your employees’ bodies may be putting in long hours, but their hearts and minds rarely punch in. Studies show that 70 percent of the workforce feel disengaged, without a sense of purpose in their jobs. This eye-popping statistic should horrify organizations today, most of whom are attempting to motivate their employees to do more with less.But how do you motivate the disengaged, and further engage the engaged? The answer is not pay, perks, or promotions. Those are nice Band-Aids that can work for a short time, but they aren’t addressing the underlying problem: their employees’ need to take part in work that matters. This upbeat, original book shows how meaning-rich workplaces connect, inspire, and catapult employees into new realms of productivity and well-being.

Insightful research findings, stories, and guidelines help readers create: • Direction: reframing work to add meaning • Discovery: offering challenges and thoughtful opportunities to learn and grow • Devotion: cultivating an authentic, caring culture, free from corrosive behaviorsMake It Matter is the first ever book that serves as a practical, yet inspiring how-to guide for motivating by creating meaning--the motivational tour de force of our times. When people feel they matter, they give their all. Everybody wins!

'Full of compelling advice on how to lead more effectively by choosing your words more wisely' - ADAM GRANT, author of Originals and Give and Take Your words matter more than you think Most of us use the language we inherited from a time when workers worked with their hands and managers worked with their heads. Today, your people do much more than simply follow orders. They contribute to performance and solve problems, and it's time we updated our language to reflect that. In Leadership Is Language, former US Navy captain L. David Marquet offers a radical playbook to empower your people and put your team on a path to continuous improvement. The framework will help you achieve the right balance between deliberation and action, and take bold risks without endangering your mission. Among other things, you'll learn: · How to avoid the seven common sins of questioning, from binary questions (should we do A or B?) to self-affirming questions (B is the better option, right?) · Why you should vote first, then discuss, when deciding on a plan with your team, rather than voting after discussion · Why it's better to give your people information instead of instructions As a submarine captain, Marquet used his counterintuitive model of leadership to turn the worst-performing submarine crew into the best-performing one in the fleet, a story he recounted in his bestselling book Turn the Ship Around! Now, in Leadership Is Language, he draws on a wide range of examples, from the 2017 Oscars Best Picture mishap to the tragic sinking of the SS El Faro, to show you exactly how the words you use (and don't use) impact how your people contribute.
