Details: Product Description In today’s organizations engagement is vital—more is being required of workers than ever. In this new edition of his classic book, Kenneth Thomas draws on the latest research findings to identify the key to employee engagement: intrinsic motivation. Only intrinsic rewards—rewards that come directly from the work itself—encourage the profound commitment and sense of ownership needed for a truly engaged and innovative workforce. Thomas identifies four intrinsic rewards, explains exactly how and why they build engagement and provides a diagnostic framework to evaluate which need boosting and how to boost them. The second edition has been revised and updated throughout, with an expanded section on how leaders can identify their own intrinsic rewards and new tools, tips and practices for encouraging intrinsic motivation in others. Review "Ken Thomas continues to contribute to our understanding of the mystery of employee engagement. He provides leaders with a roadmap that will not only guide them in working with their talented teams, but also help them understand their own motivation as well.” —Beverly Kaye, CEO/Founder, Career Systems International and coauthor of Love 'Em or Lose 'Em and Love It, Don't Leave It “This new edition is even more timely and relevant than the first. Before you work another day, read this book so you know how you can make the most of what drives you and others.” —Jim Kouzes, coauthor of The Leadership Challenge and A Leader’s Legacy "In this second edition, Ken Thomas elegantly captures the essence of engagement and how leaders can create and sustain it. Valuable reading for anyone wishing to create or lead a 21st century organization.” —David. W.

How Work Has Changed I find that a lot of people hold old assumptions about work that no longer apply. So this first part of the book will help you understand how dramatically work has changed, the nature of today’s work, and what engagement looks like in today’s organizations. It is hard to grasp how rapidly and dramatically the worker’s role has changed in this country. Consider that we even use different words to describe workers now. Few organizations still use the word subordinate to describe workers. Even the word employee has given way to associate in many Fortune 100 organizations. These word change
