One of my favorite business books on engaging your employees to help your business make money is:

The Great Game of Business

by Jack Stack.

I have given copys to  dozens of business owners, led a $10M company based on his principles.  My copy of  his book has more than 50 pages marked with reference points that are “spot on”.

His book references a Profit Sharing plan which I used, however, I have found Gain Sharing to be more effective with my clients.

When you read or are taught anything, you need to apply the principles that you are learning and be congruent with you are.  If not the effort will likely not succeed!

“Look, I believe that people as a whole hate to be “managed” and told what to do. The goal, therefore, should be to have a system in place where people can manage and lead themselves. Rather than boosting up or tearing down individuals, therefore, the system should be about getting to the root causes of problems and enabling anyone – not just charismatic and visionary leaders – to come up with the solutions. That’s what The Great Game of Business is: a leadership system.” Jack Stack
