Details: Product Description Since its original printing in 1984, The Game of Work helped thousands of companies and hundreds of thousands of managers and employees experience increased job enjoyment while producing extraordinary results. From the Back Cover Companies are raving about the game of work! “ You’ve helped us to clarify our scorekeeping, and in the process, enabled us to build ownership of results at the front line.” VP International Operations, Pepsi Bottling Group “ We had budgeted a $4 mm improvement in costs and have just closed the year with a $10 mm improvement, 250 percent better than budget! We improved our safety record from twelve OSHA reportable accidents to none last year.” Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated “ The scorecards developed were a great break-through. We have always gathered numbers. The biggest difference is now they are visual, ‘owned’ by the person doing the job, and used as a positive tool in our coaching sessions.” President, AMSCO Windows “ Employees are taking personal responsibility for their assignments, we are measuring performance more precisely, and we are doing a better job of communicating results broadly.” President, Simmons Media Group “ We’re on track to grow production another 11 percent and we’re just scratching the surface in a host of other initiatives.” US Air Force, Air Logistics Center “ Through your guidance we have discovered the ‘fun’ in managing our business. Our warehouse labor and delivery expense has greatly reduced and our productivity in the warehouse has at least tripled.” President, Muir Copper Canyon Farm About the Author Charles A. Coonradt founded The Game of Work in 1973. His methodology includes teaching the principles that unlock keys to employee involvement, engagement, and energy, thereby affecting a company's bottom line. Coonradt and his team of management consultants teach leaders how to effectively integrate these principles into their enterprises, which have included Fortune 500 companies and corporations such as Wendy's, Sherwin Williams, Boeing, Coors Brewing Company, Coca-Cola, Quaker Oats, Ralph's, and Sysco. Coonradt is internationally recognized in the fields of goal setting and profit improvement as an author, consultant, and speaker. Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved. What we’ve discovered is that human nature doesn’t change and our proven methods are not trendy, or the latest management consulting style, or the latest best seller by the newest management guru. The Game of Work is not a silver bullet or a magic potion that can be swallowed or experienced in one evangelical weekend. The Game of Work requires a leader’s dedication to his or her team members and a willingness to change behavior to produce better results. Zig Ziglar said, “You can get anything you want if you help enough people get what they want.” That is the bargain of life. The methodology and thought technology captured in the Game of Work gives each leader the keys to unlocking that unlimited human potential. From baby boomers to Generation X to the Digital Generation of the twenty-first century, it is more important to find the similarities in people’s job expectations and experiences than to focus on the differences. The five principles of the Motivation of Recreation are: • Clearly defined goals • Better scorekeeping and scorecards • More frequent feedback • A higher degree of personal choice of methods • Consistent coaching
