Publisher's Description

When it comes to qualities such as passion, enthusiasm, energy, and creativity, the majority of the American workforce could be described as "severely lacking." Too many people just go through the motions, viewing work as something they have to do rather than something they love to do. This translates into lackluster performance, lost opportunities, and a staggering loss of profits. So how does a team leader turn a business-as-usual team into a remarkable one?

Remarkable! is an entertaining and enlightening business parable that has the power to turn any team around. Through the humorous and eye-opening story of Dusty, leaders will discover how to build a culture that inspires team members to bring the best of who they are to the table every day. Addressing the three dimensions of culture--values, beliefs, and behaviors--Remarkable! introduces readers to the Four Maxims of Value Creation: creativity, positivity, sustainability, and responsibility. It shows leaders the most effective ways to cultivate these qualities in their team members and how to craft a corporate culture where people can thrive.

    I chose to review this book from Baker Books because I am always on the lookout to learn more and be better in my business life. As a young business owner, I know that I don't know everything. I treasure opportunities to delve deeper into the truths that lend themselves to success with people and in business.

    Unfortunately, Ross and Salyers buried those truths in car talk.

    I'm not a person who's into cars. I know when my oil needs to be changed because the mile counter matches the sticker on my window, and I know that I need to change my oil at that point because I can perceive the difference in my driving experience if I neglect it. I also know how to jump-start my car if necessary. But that's it. I don't know - nor do I care to know - what the clutch and drive shaft are, or any of the other inner workings of my car. I have a mechanic for that.

    So imagine my disappointment and...honestly, sheer boredom...when this book that did not mention it would be a giant car analogy turned out to be a giant car analogy. I can handle a little bit of car talk, and in leadership books I'm used to seeing it. But I couldn't get through this thing because all of the 56 pages I forced myself to choke down were in-depth car analogy talk inside of another analogy. I think that someone who really understands and likes cars might get a lot out of this, but I think that the authors are missing a huge swatch of the current business owners and high-level workers by assuming that car talk is the one and only way to communicate their ideas.

    Assessment, Alignment, Adjustment, Advancement, all woven into what the publishers have called a leadership parable. Its tale of a chat at a car repair shop that leads the wisdom seeker into change. His business prompted the conversation, but, as with lots of things in life, the advice and instruction he receives goes deeper, but the focus remains on his business questions.

    Ross and Salyers parable reads easily, is a bit pedantic to suit me, but gives the patient reader plenty to ponder. Within the four sections listed above illustrations from car repair lead to application elsewhere, as is the way of the parable. The meat comes in the last few chapters. The first half is the ground work. The rewards are to those that read both, even though I nearly set the book aside in that first half.

    Summary graphics in the appendix tie it together in a neat package. A glossary of terms is helpful too. Beyond that, they provide a link to the Remarkable Engagement Index to evaluate your own performance in areas covered within the text. Other material is available as well.

    I did find the book helpful and do recommend it to you. It does require chewing on the information presented; dont expect an easy fix is what I am trying to say.

    I received this book from the publishers in exchange for a review.
