This is a book about meaningful leadership-the kind of leadership that succeeds in running a profitable business, in improving the lives of frontline workers, and in helping the community in which you do business thrive. In other words, the kind of leadership we need now, and the kind of leadership that can only come from business leaders.
Too many of our workers walk a financial tightrope, with one small setback leading to a cascading number of other problems-the kind of blow that can jeopardize attendance, productivity, and employment. Businesses pay the price, too, through absenteeism and lost productivity, distracted or unmotivated workers, and turnover.
What if you could fix it? What if you could create structures for your employees-outside your own HR department-that could make the essential difference between keeping a job and losing it?
In this book, Mark Peters shows you how. He describes a clear, practical, successful and repeatable path you can take to serve your company, workforce, and community, modeled on the hugely successful collaboration he founded with other business owners. This book is a blueprint any group of businesses in any community can use.
