Bringing Out the Best in People: How to Apply the Astonishing Power of Positive Reinforcement

Aubrey C. Daniels

1994    208 Pages    (Mcgraw-Hill)

Organizational psychologist Aubrey C. Daniels explains in this guide, the key to managing effectively has always remained the same: "Create positive consequences for workers when they exhibit actions and behaviours you wish to increase, and undesirable consequences for the behaviours you wish to decrease."

Organizational psychologist Aubrey C. Daniels explains in this guide, the key to managing effectively has always remained the same: "Create positive consequences for workers when they exhibit actions and behaviours you wish to increase, and undesirable consequences for the behaviours you wish to decrease." That's what "Bringing Out the Best in People" can help every manager to do. Revealing the scientifically proven staying power of positive reinforcement, Dr. Daniels shows executives at every level how to use his tested performance management system to: define reinforcers that work and tailor them to meet individual employees' needs; set fair performance measurement standards and implement and maintain them with minimal cost and effort; provide constant feedback and reinforcement - so employees always know exactly how to improve performance and when they've achieved it Simply by discovering what reinforces each person, Dr. Daniels makes clear that any organization can attain the kind of individual performance that adds up to great organizational performance. And he demonstrates how to build effective reinforcers into compensation and incentive packages, work rules, performance appraisals, and other in-place business mechanisms. Backed by performance management case studies at 3M, Xerox, Conagra, and other major firms, "Bringing Out the Best in People" gives managers more than the tools to permanently revitalize productivity. It shows them how to transform their employees' work into something they're ready, willing and eager to do. [less]

The 'Great Tale' of The Children of HÚrin, set during the legendary time before The Lord of the Rings. Morgoth, the first Dark Lord, dwells in the vast fortress of Angband in the North; and within the shadow of the fear of Angband, and the war waged by Morgoth against the Elves, the fates of TÚrin and his sister NiËnor will be tragically entwined. Their brief and passionate lives are dominated by the elemental hatred that Morgoth bears them as the children of HÚrin, the man who dared to defy him to his face. Against them Morgoth sends his most formidable servant, Glaurung, a powerful spirit in the form of a huge wingless dragon of fire. Sardonic and mocking, Glaurung manipulates the fates of TÚrin and NiËnor by lies of diabolic cunning and guile, in an attempt to fulfil the curse of Morgoth. [less]

Karin Slaughter’s new novel is an epic tale of love, loyalty, and murder that encompasses forty years, two chillingly similar murder cases, and a good man’s deepest secrets.   Will Trent is a brilliant agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Newly in love, he is beginning to put a difficult past behind him. Then a local college student goes missing, and Will is inexplicably kept off the case by his supervisor and mentor, deputy director Amanda Wagner. Will cannot fathom Amanda’s motivation until the two of them literally collide in an abandoned orphanage they have both been drawn to for different reasons. Decades before—when Will’s father was imprisoned for murder—this was his home. . . .   Flash back nearly forty years. In the summer Will Trent was born, Amanda Wagner is going to college, making Sunday dinners for her father, taking her first steps in the boys’ club that is the Atlanta Police Department. One of her first cases is to investigate a brutal crime in one of the city’s worst neighborhoods. Amanda and her partner, Evelyn, are the only ones who seem to care if an arrest is ever made.   Now the case that launched Amanda’s career has suddenly come back to life, intertwined with the long-held mystery of Will’s birth and parentage. And these two dauntless investigators will each need to face down demons from the past if they are to prevent an even greater terror from being unleashed.   A masterpiece of character, atmosphere, and riveting suspense, Criminal is the most powerful and moving novel yet from one of our most gifted storytellers at work today.Advance praise for Criminal “Karin Slaughter’s best yet by far: All her signature strengths are amplified a hundredfold by the past explaining the present. Reading this book was like watching a great athlete having a career year.”—Lee Child “Fascinating . . . Slaughter delivers another riveting, pulse-pounding crime novel.”—Booklist (starred review) [less]
