Presenting a whole new language and a revolutionary mind-set that promotes inclusion and connectedness, The Membership Organization outlines the process for transforming a mainstream organization into a workplace community based on a shared vision of success, a sense of ownership, and empowered initiative among employees at all levels. Insights in this book facilitate expanded employee opportunity and enhanced organizational performance that will give companies the competitive edge they need to survive in the global marketplace.
Organized around seven principles of membership – contribution, motivation, decisioning, relationship, leadership, accountability, and advocacy – this book gives corporate executives, managers, and organizational consultants and trainers concrete steps for creating a shared sense of urgency, involvement, and ownership throughout the organization. By building partnerships that go beyond participation, by re-enrolling employees at all levels as members of the organization, business leaders encourage information sharing and innovative thinking, gained the commitment and achievement of employees, and ensure organizational success in an ever more competitive world.
