The principles found in The Gift move employees from minimal effort to amazing contributions.

… And those amazing contributions have significant economic benefits.

Based on their forthcoming book, How to Earn the Gift of Discretionary Effort, this leadership training program teaches five managerial levels that can be used to earn  discretionary effort from employees on a regular basis. The five levels are outlined in the short 4-minute video on the home page entitled, Discretionary Effort Leadership: The Core Elements.

The video below outlines the economic benefits of moving employees from disengaged to engaged. When the discretionary effort leadership five levels are implemented in your company and employees are moved from disengagement or minimal effort to an engaged employee giving amazing contributions on a regular basis, they become your competitive advantage, adding to the bottom line.  Investing in the Discretionary Effort Leadership programs for your managers and joining the world-wide discretionary effort initiative is the best way to enhance your profits.

Discretionary Effort Leadership chronicles the new work order that is emerging based on a continuous change cycle in the nature of organizational life and the expectations of the workforce.

Revolutions in technology, growth in globalization, endless business mergers and unavoidable marketplace fragmentation have fundamentally changed the nature of organizations. Simultaneously, a workforce has emerged that is more educated, mobile, diverse and discerning in work and life choices than ever before.

Whatever was left of the old industrial age social contract between employer and employee has been torched by the recession and the race to information age profitability.
