IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- POPin today announced the publication of a new leadership book, Management vs. Employees: How Leaders Can Bridge the Power Gaps That Hurt Corporate Performance, by Hayes Drumwright, founder and CEO of POPin. The book explores how to address the typical divide between management and the employees they lead.
In Management vs. Employees, Hayes Drumwright attacks a problem that has plagued companies for years: How can leaders bridge the power gap between management and employees in a way that inspires both to engage?
Published by Apress Media, Drumwright's book serves as an essential resource to build trust, gather input, distribute accountability, and make followers feel like accomplices in the leader's master plan.
Before launching POPin, Drumwright bootstrapped several other businesses in multiple industries, generating over $500 million in annual revenue. Based on many revealing stories of personal success and failure, Drumwright's new book details the mindset and methodologies that leaders must take to succeed. He emphasizes the importance of closing the gap on apathy and entitlement at all levels of an organization in order to create an engaged workforce that can scale up organically.
"Leaders need to take responsibility for uncovering inspiration at all levels while addressing the debilitating fears and apathy that prevent full commitment and engagement of every team member," Drumwright said. "My goal in writing this book is to help business leaders learn how to better implement change in today's over-complicated, over-structured enterprise, while inspiring the employee base to work toward corporate success with the same passion as the founders and executive team."
Greg McKeown, New York Times bestselling author of Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less, said, "I believe a person who can turn a negative into a positive can never be defeated — this is brilliantly illustrated in Management vs. Employees. Hayes Drumwright shares his stories of success, and, importantly, failure with a rare rawness that you will be grateful for again and again."
New York Times best-selling management author Patrick Lencioni said, "This is a raw, transparent and courageous book about the deeper issues that prevent leaders from doing what they really want to do. Hayes takes us on a trip through his own discovery and leaves us with advice and counsel that is practical and challenging. Brace yourself." Lencioni is considered the architect of organizational health, a concept that he calls the last competitive advantage in business today.
Best-selling author Daniel H. Pink, whose books have sold more than two million copies in 35 languages worldwide, said, "Hayes Drumwright is a world-class entrepreneur. And in this direct, provocative and honest book, he describes both the path of his life and the route all of us take to build something big. Along the way, he shows that a leader's ultimate job is not to shield people from risk, but to help them learn and grow."
Based on real-world stories from multiple company engagements, readers will learn:
- Why there is a divide between management and the employees they lead
- How to build trust, gather input, distribute accountability and make those you lead feel like an accomplice in the leader's master plan
