From Mindsets to Heartbeats
To help managers and leaders compete in the new knowledge era, Ron Foss has authored a book titled "From Mindsets to Heartbeats".
The book attempts to shift managers' traditional thinking about human performance from that of only ability to include the vital elements of motivation and emotional performance.
Ron puts it this way: "I have attempted to illustrate specific behaviours and the implications of these behaviours on the motivation of employees. Throughout my journey, I have always tried to manage and lead with some emotion and passion for each individual as an individual and not just an instrument for generating profits. Life is too short not to try and make the most of our interactions with people."
From chapter IV:
"The values of honesty, trust and integrity should be the foundation for all practices as a manager; or for that matter, any person."
From chapter VI:
"By facilitating leadership and working with employees in a learning session, managers will not only learn more about the subject matter but will also learn much more about the employees they are mentoring or coaching."
