Summary

Like college athletes, engaged employees are valuable, but entangled employees, like Olympians, are the ones who take an organisation to new heights. What makes these top-performing employees have such an impact on the success of each of their organisations? What encourages their sense of organisational ownership? With deep insight into eight award-winning, market-leading companies, It's My Company Too! explores how the highest-performing organisations entangle employees, systems, culture, and leadership into a unified drive for excellence. The entangled culture emerges from a unique synergy and magnetism within the organisation that is the result of leaders: Doing extraordinary things; Building an ethical organisation; Focusing human capital; Using processes to guide performance; Building self-efficacy and esteem; Developing freedom and responsibility within a culture of discipline; Hardwiring discretionary thinking and actions; Guiding the transformational process. Through interviews and extensive field research, the authors analyse how companies across industries tackle internal and external challenges, constructing the pieces of the entanglement puzzle. Along the way, they show you how to develop motivated, involved, and entangled employees who embody an organisation's core values, vision, and mission -- and succeed beyond imagination.
