On Fire at Work flies in the face of other books on workplace culture by showing that employee engagement isn't the ultimate goal--it's merely the starting point.

The guiding principle is that any organization in any industry--from Fortune 500 firms to mom-and-pop shops--can learn how to bring out the very best in their employees.

The book's content-rich research and conversational case study-based narrative make it a timely,actionable go-to reference on employee performance and productivity for C-level execs, corporate and government managers, HR professionals, and small business owners.
