Some of Mackenzie's Media
The following review appeared in the January 2017 issue of the book review publication "Library Bookwatch".
Synopsis: "The Performance Principle: A Practical Guide to Understanding Motivation in the Modern Workplace" by Mackenzie Kyle is specifically written for any manager, supervisor, or business leader who feels there must be a better, more systematic way to motivate their team and achieve phenomenal results.
"The Performance Principle" tells the fictional but illustrative story of Will Campbell, the newly promoted executive in charge of the Hyler manufacturing facility. The company has fallen on hard times and Campbell is given a year to turn around Hyler’s fortunes, a feat made all the more challenging because of the discontent among all of Hyler’s employees, from management to sales to the unionized shop floor. Over the course of several tumultuous months, Campbell and his team learn the unique principles of performance management and the powerful results it can deliver.
"The Performance Principle" effectively illustrates the fundamentals of performance management, providing a model that allows the reader to understand exactly what motivates people in the workplace, and how to align this with an organization's strategy.
Critique: Informed and informative, thoughtful and thought-provoking, a fun and compelling read from cover to cover, "The Performance Principle: A Practical Guide to Understanding Motivation in the Modern Workplace" is an exceptional and unreservedly recommended read for anyone charged with the responsibility of supervising a workforce be it for a local small business or an international conglomerate. While certain to be an enduringly popular addition to community, corporate, and academic library Business Management collections and supplemental studies lists, it should be noted for students and non-specialist general readers with an interest in the subject that "The Performance Principle" is also available in a Kindle format.
