The "contented cow" companies make more money. I like the fact that the book contains that kind of data. But I also like the stories the authors tell which bring the data to life. The book is a good read, and makes a world of difference around the work place. This book is written in a great style and reflects the candid, slightly business-irreverant style of the authors. I have read hundreds of management books and found "Contented Cows" to be one of the most enlightening and refreshing, yet statiscally valid approaches to improving performance and productivity through improved employee relations.

Are your people fully engaged and focused on giving their best effort or are they doing only enough to keep them employed?

As Bill and Richard point out in this book(a revised and updated version of their first book), each of your employees have the ability to control the amount of discretionary effort they put into their work. How much they give can very slightly from day to day, depending on how they feel their effort is valued by you and your leadership team each day they are there. Some may refer to this as their "internal attitude" and each of them are in control of it.

This book covers a lot of area, including why your company values and your ability to effectively influence the people who build the product or greet your customers are so important to the bottom line results generated.

So how do leaders gain the effective influence with the people whom they are leading that will drive the consistent positive results they seek? Here are a few you should know.

1.)They set realistic and achievable goals for their people with appropriate rewards for achievement, for both tactical short term and strategic long term goals.
Without a clear compelling direction in place; employees feel what you have given them is just the "flavor of the month" policy and their attitudes and efforts will reflect this.

2.)They come across as authentic and "walk the talk". Bill Hewlett and David Packard of Hewlett Packard are great examples of this. They had an approach to business unmatched in their industry. I know this, because I worked for them when Bill and Dave were still running the business.
Google search "Dave Packard's 11 simple rules" and you'll begin to understand why their employees loved to come to work everyday.

3.)They empower there people to make decisions and take ownership of their processes, rewarding them appropriately which further inspires them to part with more of their discretionary effort. People need to feel and see the impact their effort has on both internal and external customers. As leaders, we need to help them make those connections and to communicate a clear and compelling picture of the direction we're going for are team as often as possible.
If the message you send, both spoken and unspoken, is that your people are a bunch of under-performers, them that's the results you will get from them.

These are just a part of the Contented Cows message covered in this book. There are few other authors that can deliver this message in a humorous and thought provoking way.

As a military trained person and having worked in many organizations outside of the military,the content of this book resonated with me. Very clear practical and rational principles and methodologies. Some of which I have used and some I will definitely start to use. Everyone from the CEO down to the shop floor should read this.

Great validation for those entrepreneurs/organizations that believe staff engagement is a key element of ultimately successful customer experiences that lead to profitable growth.

"Contented Cows" is an insightful perspective on the importance of relationship-building in the workplace (and in all our other roles with human interaction). I have already bought copies for other colleagues. I highly recommend it as not only practical, but thought-provoking.

One of the best business philosophy books I've read. When owners/managers understand they need their team more than the team needs them, it will improve the business.
