“An organization can only become the-best-version-of-itself to the extent that the people who drive that organization are striving to become better-versions-of-themselves.“Matthew Kelly, Author of the Dream Manager
The Dream Manager
By Matthew Kelly
Recruiting and retaining the best employees is as important as ever. In The Dream Manager, Matthew Kelly shares his belief that employers must get into the “dream business.”
His premise is that the future of organizations and the potential of their employees are intertwined; their destinies are linked. He states, “An organization can only become the-best-version-of-itself to the extent that the people who drive that organization are striving to become better-versions-of-themselves.”
The problem is, the great majority of people in the workplace today are actively disengaged. To become more attractive to workers, companies should help them realize their dreams, even those set aside by being caught up in the hustle and bustle of surviving.
This book, based on a real Cincinnati-based cleaning company, provides tools to unleash an energy that will transform your business by making the connection between your employees’ daily work and their dreams for the future. The style of this book is much like Patrick Lencioni’s: a fable to begin and then tips for applying the concepts.
This book is a great read for both business and personal applications. It was an excellent reminder to me that not only do we all need a dream manager, but we are also someone else’s dream manager. That responsibility is awesome.
