"Murphy finds that most workplaces are brimming with untapped talent. Only it's suppressed by goal-setting that discourages big ideas and leaders who focus on happiness rather than greatness."
Training Magazine

We?ve all heard the saying that a happyemployee is a motivated employee. Butwhat if that?s not true?

Leadership IQ CEO Mark Murphy says the?happy employee? philosophy doesn?t work.A study of more than 500,000 leaders and employeesshows that despite the billions of dollarsorganizations spend to satisfy and engageworkers, 72% of employees admit they?re stillnot giving their best effort at work. Rather,it?s leaders who focus on making their peoplegreat?not happy?who inspire HundredPercenter performance.

If you talk to the employees behind today?sgreat innovations, you?re unlikely to hear, ?Iwas inspired by a boss who coddles me.? Insteadyou?d probably hear, ?My boss challengesme and pushes me past my limits.? Mostworkplaces are brimming with untapped talent?only it?s suppressed by leaders who failto connect with and challenge employees tounleash their true potential.

Here are just a few of the big ideas in HundredPercenters:

  • The harder the goals you set, thebetter your employees will perform

  • Talented Terrors?people with greatskills and a bad attitude?can destroyyour company culture
  • Before you can start motivatingHundred Percenters, you have tostop demotivating them
  • You should never ask your employeesif they?re ?satisfied?
