Learn how to create the kind of workplace that attracts, develops and keeps the best employees while improving performance and profitability. Gallup's 2016 re-release of its management classic, First, Break All the Rules, gives you the tools you need to turn individuals' talents into performance. First, Break All the Rules includes access to the CliftonStrengths assessment and access to Gallup's Q12 employee engagement survey for up to 10 employees. What do the world's greatest managers do differently? Despite their different styles and backgrounds, great managers don't hesitate to break virtually every rule held sacred by conventional wisdom. They don't believe that, with enough training, people can achieve anything they set their minds to. They don't try to help people overcome their weaknesses. And yes, they even play favorites. In this longtime management bestseller, Gallup presents the remarkable findings of its massive in-depth study of great managers. From Fortune 500 companies to small, entrepreneurial firms, the best managers excel at turning each individual employee's talent into high performance. And perhaps most important, Gallup's research produced the 12 simple statements that distinguish the strongest departments of a company from all the rest. First, Break All the Rules is the first book to present this essential measuring stick and to prove the link between employee opinions and productivity, profit, customer satisfaction and the rate of turnover.
