Publisher's Summary

You can't sell it outside if you can't sell it inside.

You want maximum business performance? Look under the hood, and you'll find your employee culture: It is the power that drives the enterprise engine. To harness that rumbling power, you've got to solve the mystery of what an employee culture actually is, how it operates, and how to move it forward. These are the keys that this audiobook will put right in your hands.

Renowned business culture expert Stan Slap knows the difference between understanding your employees and understanding your employee culture. The distinction isn't semantics; it's the key to whether your strategies will succeed or fail. This myth-busting book reveals why an employee culture is an independent organism with its own rules, beliefs, and motivations - and the power to make or break any management plan (and any manager right along with it). Slap shows you how to get whatever you want from your employee culture, whether it's improved accountability, innovation, flexibility, resilience, energy, loyalty, or trust.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Culture is people!

Best book I've listened to all year, hands down. A must read for anyone that understands success.

Stan Slap's "Under the Hood" feedback

Overall, a positive follow up to "Bury My Heart in Conference Room B." There is newer content here specific to the employee culture that I can instantly apply to my organization (external company examples, 7 deadly sins that ruin an employee culture). The only constructive feedback I have is that there was a lot of duplication from "Bury" in this book; possibly to educate folks that did not read "Bury". I am hoping for Stan to explore blowing out both the manager and customer cultures in future books.

Good but streched

There is a good bit of information in this book about understanding your role as a manager. The down side is this book could have been at least twice as small to convey all of the same messages. It’s very much like his book about living your values at work but this one is focused on knowing your employee culture. I can’t say that I would recommend this book to others but if you don’t mind extremely drawn out points there are a lot of good nuggets in here.
