Overview

To realize elite workforce performance is deceptively simple—you only have to...



Find the best person for each job,

Identify the best in each person,

Create the best workplace for everyone.



As important and helpful as the behavioral sciences have been for some aspects of business, when it comes to building a truly great workforce, psychology has been at best, completely inadequate. Many of our behavioral experts and much of our conventional wisdom about human behavior can actually make us worse at managing people.



This book provides a straightforward, yet smart science that effectively addresses each of the above factors of elite performance. Offered here are practical ways to apply this science and gain an unmatched competitive advantage for your organization. More important, if you are open and ready, you will begin a fulfilling journey, and develop a smarter way of thinking about your leaders, managers and people.
