Our longtime client and friend, Greg Slamowitz, Cofounder and Co-CEO of Ambrose Employer Group has just published a new book called Flip the Pyramid. Ambrose is a Professional Employer Organization that provides outsourced human resource services, and has been named for the second year in a row as one of the 50 Best Companies to Work For in New York State. Quite an honor. I'm really looking forward to reading Greg's thoughts on what it takes to "create a workforce that is engaged, aligned, empowered and on fire".
Here's a little more info in case you're also interested:
Micromanagement is a killer. Surveys indicate that 79% of workers believe that they have been micromanaged, with 71% reporting that it has interfered with their ability to perform their job. The impact: micromanagement keeps most organizations from attaining optimal success, or sometimes from achieving any success at all. Fortunately, you have the solution. FLIP THE PYRAMID, by Greg Slamowitz - shows you how to supercharge the efficiency of your organization, creating a powerful tribal culture that not only engages, aligns and empowers the talents of every last employee, but ultimately transcends the company itself to fully engage your customers. Flip the Pyramid turns the traditional org chart on its head, showing how to fully engage the innovation and power in each individual to take your company to the top.
Check out the book endorsements:
