Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

Release the Power and Potential of Every Employee.

Have you ever wanted a book you could share with everyone who works for you -- a book that gives employees the tools they need to make their work more rewarding and help the organization become more successful? Here, at last, is such a book -- from Bob Nelson, the million-copy bestselling author of 1001 Ways to Reward Employees. What's more, this book is essential for anyone who wants to get ahead and applies equally to managers and employees.

Bob Nelson maps out a specific and easy-to-follow strategy for fulfilling what he calls "The Ultimate Expectation" at every workplace: that people will use their best judgment to figure out what needs to be done and then do it without having to be told. His advice is surprising and novel. For example, some of the ways he suggests to excel at work include.
  • Make Your Job More Difficult
  • Develop a Reputation as the Office Cheapskate
  • Shoot Holes in Your Own Plans
  • Ask Silly Questions

Brief, to the point, and inspiring, Nelson's advice can be applied to any situation, from the mailroom to the boardroom, and is illustrated with examples and anecdotes from real life. This book is a perfect "first day on the job" read; an inspiring motivational tool for long-time employees; a useful resource for any HR department; and an invaluable investment for anyone who wants to go further than he or she ever dreamed possible in a job, a career, and in life.


"Simple, smart and savvy . . . shows employees how to reach for the sky and use initiative they never knew was there."
—Dr. Stephen R. Covey, author, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

"Nelson has boiled self-leadership down to its very essence -- intoxicating, yet vital in today's increasingly competitive global business environment."
—Peter Economy, co-author, Leadership Ensemble: Lessons in Collaborative management from the World's Only Conductorless Orchestra

"If you're . . . looking for practical tools to get more out of life or work, read this new book!"
—Robert K. Cooper, Ph. D., author, The Other 90%

". . . It is also a great tool for employers to share with everyone in their workplace."
—Stephen C. Lundin, Ph.D., and John Christensen, authors, Fish!

"Bob Nelson's book . . . shows readers that they are, in fact, the masters of their own fates and successes."
—Martin Edelston, Chairman and Ceo, Boardroom Inc.
