The Power of Better Series : Volume I - Leading Like You Own It! Why We Never Wax a Rental Car.
"I'm still the same ol' me" is a line from a country song. It should not be your personal or organizational mission statement. Sadly, this line from a country song describes many crews, departments, companies, organizations, associations, schools, careers and lives. Greg Gilbert has found the secret to beating disappointment, discouragement and dissatisfaction. It is simple; "Get Better." We are not here to "keep things as they are." We are here to grow, develop and improve in all aspects of Leadership and Life. We MUST be intentional about "getting better." Improvement is NEVER accidental! Pick an answer. My results, profitability, customer service and morale are; 1. Getting Better 2. Falling behind. There is no "Staying the same" choice. This is not an option. "Getting Better" should be a desired destination for every team member, manager, supervisor, HR Manager, teacher, administrator and association member in this country. The path to "Getting Better" will always lead through Education, Engagement and Accountability. There are no shortcuts. Great speakers and authors do not tell you what to do. They educate, inspire and encourage you to ask yourself two questions; 1. Why am I doing this? 2. Why am I not doing that? That is the Education. Great readers and attendees of conferences, keynotes and seminars will take the next step. They answer these two questions in writing and will implement personally or with their team; 1. When will I stop doing this and what steps will I take? 2. When will l begin doing that and what steps will I take? That is Engagement. Great readers and attendees of conferences, keynotes and seminars will take the final step. They will set follow-up dates to track progress to insure they are "Getting Better." That is Accountability. This book will supply the Education. If the Education is taken through the Engagement and Accountability stages, "Getting Better" is guaranteed. This leads to better results, profitability, customer service and morale. These are the questions; Q. What are you doing to improve your team? Q. What has improved in the last 12 months as a direct result of your actions? Q. What is the Return On Investment for you reading this book or attending a seminar? The answers are in "The Power Of Better." Greg Gilbert has written a book that should be given to every Foreman, Supervisor, Manager, HR Manager and every person in a position of Leadership or influence. They WILL run into the situations covered in this book. Why not learn from Greg's experience?

No refunds were requested.

About Greg Gilbert
This is Greg Gilbert. I refuse to write in third person. My audience and readers are smart enough to know this is written by me. If it pertains to Human Resources, leadership, management, supervision or life, I've been there, done that, journaled it, heard the grievance and I'm now teaching and writing about it. I have been able to utilize, witness and share the unbeatable benefit of Education, Engagement, Accountability and the Leader/Owner Mindset. I have witnessed their benefit as a telephone repairman, Supervisor, Area Manager, Husband of over 39 years (to the same wife), Dad, Papaw, farm kid and as the primary HR contact for over 2000 team members. I began journaling "what worked" and "what failed" in 1978. My Human Resources career and my farm upbringing were the most educational periods of my life. Both have led to content that has been shared with thousands of attendees. The experiences are now also shared through my books. I am a firm believer in presentations and books with both content and humor. I sometimes utilize "Mr. HR With A Guitar" as a unique method of sharing these lessons and adding humor. Thousands across the country have been introduced to "The Power Of Better" Movement and "Leading Like You Own It." I invite you to join me on this "journey through my journals" through my books and Leadership Development Sessions.
