The Carrot Principle: How the Best Managers Use Recognition to Engage Summary

The Carrot Principle: How the Best Managers Use Recognition to Engage by Adrian Gostick

A successful business culture is not created by the CEO or HR department but by one manager at a time. A nationwide statistical study by the Jackson Organization, unveiled here for the first time, reveals that managers rated as "very effective" at recognition by their employees were also recognized as communicators, team-builders, and goal setters. Bottom line: the most successful business leaders use carrots, not sticks. The Carrot Principle illustrates how ordinary organizations can make themselves extraordinary. Based on case studies from some of the world's most successful companies, such as DHL, Avis, and Pepsi, Adrian Gostick and Chester Elton demonstrate how praise and recognition lead to improved employee commitment and bottom line results. Filled with practical how-tos and real-life examples of the carrot principle in action, this modern day classic shows managers how they can make themselves not just better liked, but more effective.
