Publisher's Summary

You can't sell it outside if you can't sell it inside.
You want maximum business performance? Look under the hood, and you'll find your employee culture: It is the power that drives the enterprise engine. To harness that rumbling power, you've got to solve the mystery of what an employee culture actually is, how it operates, and how to move it forward. These are the keys that this audiobook will put right in your hands.
Renowned business culture expert Stan Slap knows the difference between understanding your employees and understanding your employee culture. The distinction isn't semantics; it's the key to whether your strategies will succeed or fail. This myth-busting book reveals why an employee culture is an independent organism with its own rules, beliefs, and motivations - and the power to make or break any management plan (and any manager right along with it). Slap shows you how to get whatever you want from your employee culture, whether it's improved accountability, innovation, flexibility, resilience, energy, loyalty, or trust.

Stan Slap's "Under the Hood" feedback

Overall, a positive follow up to "Bury My Heart in Conference Room B." There is newer content here specific to the employee culture that I can instantly apply to my organization (external company examples, 7 deadly sins that ruin an employee culture). The only constructive feedback I have is that there was a lot of duplication from "Bury" in this book; possibly to educate folks that did not read "Bury". I am hoping for Stan to explore blowing out both the manager and customer cultures in future books.
