A Leader’s Guide to Ending Entitlement and Restoring Pride in the Emerging Workforce
Work ethic in America is fast declining, plaguing young and old alike. But in Reviving Work Ethic, Eric Chester shows that you do best to focus on your young employees—those whose habits and ideals can still be influenced.
Chester presents an incisive look at the root of the entitlement mentality that afflicts many in the emerging workforce. He provides specific actions that business owners, managers and executives can take to give their employees a deep commitment to performing excellent work.
And his advice is crucial to a healthy bottom line. Too often, talented but difficult-to-understand younger workers stand between your company and its profits. If leaders are not connecting with them and modeling the key components of work ethic, employees are likely not connecting effectively with customers—leaving all kinds of money on the table.
The first business book written on work ethic since 1904, Reviving Work Ethic is the culmination of years of research as well as presentations to over two million youth. Chester’s experience shows in his confident analysis of the 7 Components of Work Ethic and in his proven strategies for handing them down to young employees.
