About this title


Since its original printing in 1984, The Game of Work helped thousands of companies and hundreds of thousands of managers and employees experience increased job enjoyment while producing extraordinary results. The Game of Work examines the question of why people work harder at sports and recreation than they do on the job and uses these as metaphors for inspirational leadership strategies. Corporations worldwide have enjoyed the increased productivity, employee satisfaction and motivation, and bottom-line profits by implementing the concepts taught in The Game of Work. As qualified people become increasingly difficult to attract and retain, the implementation of the five principles in this book is the one key factor to improving results, retention, and recruitment.

Charles A. Coonradt is internationally recognized in the fields of goal setting and profit improvement as an author, consultant, and speaker. His books, The Game of Work, Managing the Obvious, The Four Laws of Debt Free Prosperity, and Scorekeeping for Success are management "must reads." He is a contributing author to the best-selling Chicken Soup for the Soul series and lives in Park City, Utah.

From the Back Cover:

Companies are raving about the game of work!

" You've helped us to clarify our scorekeeping, and in the process, enabled us to build ownership of results at the front line." VP International Operations, Pepsi Bottling Group

" We had budgeted a $4 mm improvement in costs and have just closed the year with a $10 mm improvement, 250 percent better than budget! We improved our safety record from twelve OSHA reportable accidents to none last year." Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated

" The scorecards developed were a great break-through. We have always gathered numbers. The biggest difference is now they are visual, 'owned' by the person doing the job, and used as a positive tool in our coaching sessions." President, AMSCO Windows

" Employees are taking personal responsibility for their assignments, we are measuring performance more precisely, and we are doing a better job of communicating results broadly." President, Simmons Media Group

" We're on track to grow production another 11 percent and we're just scratching the surface in a host of other initiatives." US Air Force, Air Logistics Center

" Through your guidance we have discovered the 'fun' in managing our business. Our warehouse labor and delivery expense has greatly reduced and our productivity in the warehouse has at least tripled." President, Muir Copper Canyon Farm
