9 Keys to Creating Self-Motivated High Achievers


If a manager wants their staff to perform at their best, then they need to become the best manager they can be - someone who can ignite employees' passion for their jobs, enabling them to execute their duties at a high level whether the manager is there or not.

From the acclaimed author of The Best Damn Sales Book Ever, Warren Greshes’ new book, The Best Damn Management Book Ever: 9 Keys to Creating Self-Motivated High Achievers (Wiley, November 2011, Hardcover & e-book, $19.95, 978-1-1180-3232-9) advises managers, executives, and business owners how to do just that with a concise trove of management wisdom.

The Best Damn Management Book Ever uses entertaining real-life stories to explain practical, easy-to-implement strategies to hone leadership skills. Greshes discusses how mangers can communicate more effectively with direct reports, gain insight, and determine each employee's "Hot Buttons" and motivators.

Greshes shares detailed steps for creating a culture of excellence, including:

  • Set high standards and help employees build winning streaks with daily goals that incrementally expand their comfort zones
  • Clearly explain to all employees the importance of their jobs
  • Teach people the tools and techniques to be self-motivated
  • Create opportunities for middle-of-the-pack employees to interact with the top 10 percent
  • Learn to offer constructive criticism balanced by praise, recognition, and positive reinforcement
  • Install the self-starting generator in employees, enabling them to perform at a high level
  • Correctly manage the three distinct groups that comprise every organization
  • Delegate more effectively
  • Use your time as a manager, executive, and business owner more efficiently

In each chapter, Greshes breaks away from the topic to give readers either a “Leadership Tip” or “Leadership Alert” in order to expand on a point and give readers more practical information that can be put to use immediately.

“Creating a staff of self-motivated people is going to save managers a tremendous amount of time to do the things they need to do in order to achieve success for their careers, and their companies,” says Greshes. “The best way to get started is to remember one simple rule of thumb: Your staff, the people who report to you, are your customers. A manger’s attitude toward them will be their attitude toward the customers and clients that buy from their company. Whether they work in customer service, sales, secretarial support, accounting, installation, or the shipping department, each one of these people has the ability to make an impact on a company in either a positive or negative way. The choice is yours.”
