Short Synopsis
We sketches the landscape of today's changing job environment and gives managers and individual employees alike a road map to full engagement.

Full Synopsis
We live in a new world where work and life are blended as opposed to balanced, and feelings of financial security and entitlement are a thing of the past. Job satisfaction is at a record low, a crisis with far-reaching impact. For businesses, a disengaged workforce means lower levels of productivity and service, and ultimately lower growth and profits. For individuals, our emotions at work spill over to the other areas of our lives and take a toll on our health and relationships.

In We, Rudy Karsan and Kevin Kruse dig deep to reveal the nature of work in the modern organization and share the secrets for achieving full engagement at work, based on findings from over ten million worker surveys in 150 countries and also on their own experiences leading fast-growth companies. They show the inevitable linkage between the success of the individual and the success of the organization, and how both must come together to succeed.

For managers and all professionals, We details the leadership behaviors that generate emotional buy-in and commitment from team members. Karsan and Kruse highlight the three factors that drive one's level of engagement the most:

—Growth: Team members feel they are growing in their careers and learning new things.

—Recognition: Team members feel that their ideas and accomplishments are appreciated.

—Trust: Team members trust senior leadership and feel confident about the future.

We is an indispensable guide packed with solid research, case studies from innovative companies, individual stories of personal growth and achievement, and actionable steps that will both enhance your own engagement at work and transform your approach to leadership.

"Karsan and Kruse show the power of having engaged employees for business success and provide practical guidance for how to achieve it." ---Peter Cappelli, PhD.

"Compelling research and detailed advice that will enable leaders at all levels in an organization to step up the emotional commitment they need from their team members to materially improve performance." ---Douglas Conant, CEO, Campbell Soup Company
