Jacksonville, FL, July 03, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- Millennials in pursuit of happiness in organizations that align with their values, women yearning for practical tips on reaching the top without selling their soul, MBAs on a quest to hold people accountable without making enemies, and anyone tasked with helping their organization create an irresistible experience for their employees and customers will find the “The WOW Factor Workplace: How to Create a ‘Best Place to Work’ Culture” particularly enlightening. It will be released this fall.
Deb Boelkes of Amelia Island, FL – who founded the leadership development firm Business World Rising a decade ago after leading sales and professional services organizations for 25 years within Fortune 100 technology companies – collaborated with renowned psychiatrist and international best-selling author, Dr. Mark Goulston, in the writing of this book. In it, Boelkes weaves her own career lessons-learned and insightful soundbites from Dr. Mark into a stirring and illuminating narrative.
“The WOW Factor Workplace” includes shockingly candid, in-depth interviews with over a dozen notable leaders from award winning “Best Places to Work” – organizations with products, services and camaraderie so amazing that the best, brightest and most talented people line up to get in. The book also offers an abundance of helpful advice and action steps useful at any step on the career ladder.
“I started out writing this book as the philosophical foundation for Business World Rising’s Leadership Vistas peer mentoring program,” Boelkes said. “The objective was to ignite a transformation in the thinking of our high potential and high achieving clients.
“When we rolled out our semi-annual Leadership Vistas symposiums – exciting, topical, full-day events where we brought together all our peer mentoring groups, from emerging leaders to CEOs, along with all their hand-selected associates, peers and protégés as participants – I realized the entire business world needed the extraordinary insights offered in this book.”
Now with the US economy at near full employment, and with a talented workers’ market upon us, Deb is more excited than ever to release “The WOW Factor Workplace” to help every organization become a Best Place to Work.
“As I learned in combat, success depends on unleashing available talent and resources. Current leadership models are failing miserably to meet this goal. “The WOW Factor Workplace” is a powerful springboard to replace outdated thinking and find a better way that lasts.”
