Turn your organization into a star-making machine.
In every company, a select few produce more, sell more, and deliver better results. These stellar performers consistently outshine their peers—and achieve more than most would believe possible. If only these people could be cloned! The Star Factor delivers the next best thing: a unique system for unlocking their wisdom, transforming that knowledge into actionable steps, and helping other employees internalize these new attitudes and behaviors, bringing much-needed change to the whole organization.
The book’s proven Affirmative Leadership methodology has produced astonishing results for companies in a range of industries: The world’s largest semiconductor manufacturer doubled its accuracy rate for inventory management forecasting; and a top fast food chain dramatically reduced its employee turnover.
Supported by recent breakthroughs in neuroscience, including research on motivation, learning, and achievement, The Star Factor presents a sustainable, people-centered system to build a culture of greatness that starts with the stars and spreads to every corner and every level of the organization.
