One of the most memorable bits of wisdom that flows forth from Keeping the Good Ones, and there are many, is the notion that effective managers treat their employees like people first and workers second. Grace, Maria, Devon, and Tony will show you why it's so important. And, Marvin will show you that treating them like people first might require a significant behavioral change, but one that is worth the effort...

All of the General Manager's in our hotel management company have read the book "From Good to Great". The Keeping the Good Ones video is a great tool to demonstrate the concepts from the book. The video follows the sames principles from the book and is a great resource to use to reinforce the book. Any managers/supervisors involved in hiring, training, and motivating employees would benefit greatly from Keeping the Good Ones Video and you will find your employees will be much happier and enjoy their jobs.

YYYYY Dave Maxwell(TRAX International)
Relevant and engaging personnel management training for senior supervisors and managers is hard to come by, and "Keeping the Good Ones" fills that gap. We can all relate to the main character's transition from clueless to trying too hard to achieving a final balance. The 10-Minute-Check-In was not especially well blended into the rest of the presentation, but we plan to make a virtue of necessity by using the abrupt introduction of that teaching point as a logical break point for discussion.
