9780130497666: The Haves and the Have Nots: The Abuse of Power and Privilege in the Workplace...and How to Control it (Financial Times (Prentice Hall))

The Haves and Have Nots introduces a unique framework for understanding how employees' efforts depend on their identification with the organization, how employee/employer ties are built and broken, and how enterprises can achieve powerful competitive advantage by overcoming their tendencies to create "haves" and "have nots." Drawing on extensive case studies, it identifies the real psychological reasons why executives demand unfair special privilege, shows how this undermines the organization, and offers proven, practical solutions.

From the Back Cover:

"No one should be allowed to manage who has not read this book and taken its content to heart." —Russell L. Ackoff,
Anheuser Busch Professor Emeritus of Management Science,
Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania"Timely, hard hitting and practical. Harvey Hornstein's book is a breakthrough for the leadership required to build healthy organizations. His formula, the three Rs—Reward, Respect and Recognition—are spot on." —Professor Noel Tichy,
The University ofMichigan,
and author of The Cycle of Leadership- How Great Leaders Teach Their Organizations to Win "If all bosses used Hornstein's guides for leadership, I guarantee that their workers' full talents would be deployed?and with relish. It's what that over-used word 'empowerment' is all about." —Warren Bennis,
Distinguished Professor of Business Administration, University of Southern California,
and co-author of Geeks and Geezers- How Era, Values, and Defining Moments Shape Leaders"If you have been uneasy about the direction American management has taken in the last decade, as I have, this book is a must read. Using powerful examples, Harvey Hornstein illustrates how management practices, compensation systems, and attitudes have created a we-they climate that harms both corporate performance and employee well-being. In a highly readable fashion, Hornstein also shows how managers who want to make good on their claim that people are the company's most important asset can do so. It is not rocket science. It does require the wisdom Hornstein imparts so eloquently." —Michael Beer, Emeritus, Cahners-Rabb Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School"Prior to this well-written, finely tuned book by Hornstein, it is highly unlikely that fairness in the workplace has been explained better. Moreover, for every claim, a ton of evidence is provided to support the significantly important points that Hornstein makes. CEOs would be wise to distribute copies to all of their managers, and if the managers read it, then give them a bonus!" —W. Warner Burke,
Professor of Psychology & Education,
Teachers College, Columbia University
