Building A Winning Culture In Government

By

Building Successful Government

Building A Winning Culture In Government is a revolutionary blueprint for building organizational success in the private sector―and now in government

Government Culture. Our government organizations face political fallout, media scrutiny, reduced funding, and the many challenges involved in motivating large, multi-layered and highly regulated organizations. It’s no surprise that many government organizations report that their employees are less engaged than ever and that leaders feel helpless to change the situation. In many cases, employees and government leaders are caught in a vicious cycle. Performance declines, scrutiny increases, and employee paralysis ensues.

Breaking this cycle and building successful government. Change the mindset from “leaders are a select few in the organization” to “everyone can and should be a leader.” This simple shift is key to building successful government organizations in the 21st century. If every member of the organization is a leader, it enables government organizations to leverage the power of five highly effective and proven FranklinCovey practices that have made private sector organizations successful and are now bringing about positive change in public sector organizations.

The five highly effective practices. Transform your government organization into one that is more responsive to the public interest and provide a more rewarding, less stressful, and overall better life for your employees:

  • Practice 1: Lead with purpose and find your organization's mission, mantra, or manifesto.
  • Practice 2: Make the 7 Habits of Highly Successful People your organization's operating system.
  • Practice 3: Unleash and engage people to do infinitely more than you imagined they could.
  • Practice 4: Inspire trust and be the most trusted organization possible.
  • Practice 5: Create intense loyalty with all stakeholders.

Getting My Bounce Back

By

Female, Fit and Fifty

Exercise is not optional: You don’t have to run a marathon to be fit and healthy or suffer through a triathlon that includes a half-mile swim in the ocean. But you do need an exercise habit. Especially as we age, exercise is not optional. Yet unless we had been athletes as kids or young adults, and few of us were, we do not know how to find our edge. Learning how to carve out time to meet our fitness needs or to push ourselves physically and mentally is one of the greatest challenges to aging well.

Finding the inspiration to exercise: Inspired by her highly popular blog “Be the Dog”, Carolee Belkin Walker's Getting My Bounce Back is a relatable story of what it’s like to be a successful professional woman encountering all things fitness for the first time. Even if readers have never put on a pair of running shoes or tried again and again to get a fitness habit, they’ll relate to the highs and lows of Walker’s journey to the back of the pack and ultimately stumbling on a path to resilience and well-being.

Happier more confident woman: You could fit two of Walker inside what her body looked like in February 2014. But it is the powerful sense of confidence and resilience that’s had the greatest impact on Walker and inspires others. This book is about Walker digging in, discovering who she is, and seeing how far she can push herself to be strong, fit, healthy, and most important, resilient. Her writing is full of humorous situations as she decides to be an active participant in life and not take the setbacks, or herself, too seriously.

Benefits of reading Getting My Bounce Back:

  • Learn how to make time for exercise
  • Get inspired to get fit
