The Definitive Business Book On Staff Engagement!

As a business owner who took a start-up to over 120 employees and $12 million in sales, I remember desperately looking for answers as we dealt with the challenges that come with growing a successful business.

We were a small business, not a corporation, so while I valued reading Jim Collins’ book, Good to Great, and appreciated Jack Welch’s book Straight from the Gut, they weren’t talking about my world!

If you have 96 – 160 employees, your world is much different than it was when you had 35 employees or 75 employees. And by reading the sixth book in the 7 Stages of Growth series, you’ll learn exactly why.

You’ll have a research-based understanding of the right things to focus on today, have the ability to predict what’s coming as you add more people, and adapt your leadership skills to what your company needs from you specifically as the company grows.

By reading Fostering Happy Employees, you’ll discover:

  •  Why this stage of growth is called Strategic ….
  • Why the top gate of focus is People ….
  • Why your top leadership style is Affiliative ….

Stage 6 is also about helping your leaders feel confident on how to engage their teams, make better decisions and help each employee see the relationship between staff satisfaction and profitability. Your job, as the CEO of this Stage 6 organization is to provide the vision for the next strategic growth opportunity.

In Fostering Happy Employees, you’ll find solutions to the five top challenges for Stage 6:

  1. The need for better staff buy-in

And more importantly, you’ll discover a formula for growth that has helped hundreds of CEOs proactively manage the chaos that comes with growing a business.

“Nowhere have I ever found an incisive, insightful analytical tool like that offered by the 7 Stages of Growth. It makes charting a company’s growth as easy as painting by numbers.”

David Zucker

CEO, Zocalo Community Development

“As a fast-growing company, we struggled to keep our focus on areas that were critical for growing successfully. By working with the Stages of Growth, we discovered what our current operational environment really is, identified critical path objectives and developed a strategic set of initiatives that will become our roadmap for our future.”

Jeff Bay

Managing Director, HayMax Hotels

“One of the biggest issues I struggle with as the CEO of a growing company is the unknown and having to make timely decisions with only 80-90% of the data available. One of the biggest attractions to the Stages of Growth X-Ray program is it helped my leadership team move from ‘wondering’ what to do next to ‘taking action’ through a detailed initiative plan built with confidence and organizational buy-in. This program allows a CEO to stop guessing at what he/she should be focused on and helps them identify exactly what to focus on. That’s a huge advantage to any organization.”

Jeff Debus

CEO, Beckwood Press
