Employee Engagement Books

The Power of Full Engagement: Managing Energy, Not


Time, Is the Key to High Performance and Personal
Renewal (Paperback)
by Jim Loehr (Author), Tony Schwartz (Author)

1. Book Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The authors, founders of and executives at LGE Performance Systems, an executive


training program based on athletic coaching programs, offer a program aimed at stressed
individuals who want to find more purpose in their work and ways to better handle their
overburdened relationships. Just as athletes train, play and then recover, people need to
recognize their own energy levels. “Balancing stress and recovery is critical not just in
competitive sports, but also in managing energy in all facets of our lives. Emotional depth
and resilience depend on active engagement with others and with our own feelings.” Case
studies demonstrate how some modest changes can have an immediate impact. Loehr
(Mental Toughness Training for Sports) and Schwartz (Art of the Deal, writing with
Donald Trump) also include a chart highlighting Action Steps, Targeted Muscle, Desired
Outcome and Performance Barrier and apply these tenets to individual cases. A chart
analyzing the benefits and costs to taking certain action shows the impact negative
behavior can have on both physical and mental well-being. However, the actual “training
program” whereby readers can learn how to institute certain rituals to change their
behavior is less well-defined. Managers and other employees who have attended HR
seminars may find this plan easy to use, but self-employed people and others less familiar
with “training” may be unable to recognize their behavior patterns and change them.

Employee Engagement through Effective Performance


Management: A Practical Guide for Managers
(Paperback)
by Manuel London (Editor), Edward M. Mone (Editor)

1.Book Reviews

Review
In the past few years it has been almost impossible to avoid the topic of Employee
Engagement. Ed Mone and Manny London have finally addressed the issue from the
practical point of view of those who make it happen, the managers. Mone and London
have delivered a very practical guide written in how to style which can be readily
translated into action by those on the front lines. This book guides managers through
these difficult conversations and how performance management can be used to drive
employee engagement. Mone and London seamlessly weave research and practical
guidelines into a very comprehensive and useful book for managers, as well as academics
and HR professionals. -Walter L. Jackson, PhD, Managing Director, Human Capital
Consulting, Braver Group, Boston, MA

The framework for the performance management process is well integrated and provides
a nice applied model for practitioners to use in the field. Authored by a leading
psychologist and experienced practitioner, this book recognizes some recent streams of
research (engagement, team learning, trust) and is clearly presented as a resource book
for practitioners. – William Balzer, Department of Psychology, Bowling Green State
University

The focus on employee engagement, continuous learning /development and burnout are
especially relevant given the pace at which today’s organizations operate. The book does
an excellent job of translating theory into practical guidance and provides several tools
that managers can use to apply the knowledge and recommendations suggested in each
chapter. It illustrates not only traditional tools such as 360 degree feedback, but also
frameworks and tools for effective coaching, building and promoting trust, and setting
performance and development goals. – Howard Klein, Fisher College of Business, The
Ohio State University
