If you're lucky enough to have a job, you have to read this book!
By Michael Dawson - January 31, 2011
Your job matters more than you think. In fact, it has a startling impact on all aspects of your life, including your happiness, your health, your weight, your life expectancy, your relationships - even the intimacy of your marriage and your children's behavior at school! This is because work doesn't leave us when we leave the office. Our work-related emotions 'spill over' into other areas of our lives.
'We: How to increase performance and profits through full engagement' is not your typical business book. Yes, it covers employee engagement, leadership and how to increase productivity. But what really distinguishes this from the crowd is that it's also a book for individuals on how to achieve happiness at work.

This is *the* book that both employers and employees need to foster a sense of unity in the workplace ...

Not another tome of inspiring workplace tales. Full of real data and tools.
By Adam Bauser - January 27, 2011
If you're looking for one of those business books where every chapter starts with some thought-provoking story about how some individual or company came to some profound revelation that forever changed their career destiny or bottom line, you should probably find another book to read. While Karsan and Kruse do share more than a few useful anecdotes from their time as business leaders, they also pack this book full of worksheets, surveys, and tools that push the reader to actually apply what's being taught. Better yet, the stuff being taught didn't just fall out of their heads, it's supported with loads of data and research. Have a pencil handy while reading We: How to Increase Performance and Profits through Full Engagement, because you're going to want to take notes.
