These vulnerable and resentful feelings affect as many as two-thirds of U.S. workers, who are either actively looking for new jobs or going through the motions at their current jobs. Fueled by bad management practices, this "psychological recession" can take a toll on your organization's bottom line. So what can we do about this problem? Drawing on what works for exceptional and profitable companies, Dr. Judith Bardwick has developed original ideas and specific strategies to regain the trust, commitment and engagement of your employees at every level. She has compiled her insights into a new book, One Foot Out the Door (AMACOM). In this book she reveals how you can increase commitment, get more from your people, magnify your bottom line, and replace the broken spirit at the heart of your company with engagement, the passionate sense of, "I'm in! Let's go!" Bardwick is a highly regarded writer, speaker and management consultant whose clients have included IBM, Hewlett-Packard and Johnson & Johnson. Prior to forming her consulting business in 1983, she was a professor and associate dean at the University of Michigan. She also served as a clinical professor of psychiatry at the University of California, San Diego. Dr. Bardwick has authored over 100 articles and books on a wide range of subjects, including optimizing individual and management effectiveness and performance, analyzing cultural views and values for positive change, developing leadership qualities, and facilitating the conditions necessary for psychological success at both the personal and corporate levels.
