Most employees feel invisible to their leadership—and many times prefer to stay hidden in the corporate shadow lands. The Invisible Employee, part fable, part business advice, teaches managers how to actively engage employees, and find the way to bring out the best in them. This book focuses on how managers can lead people from obscurity to achievement and take companies from ordinary to extraordinary by something as simple as setting a guiding vision, providing rewarding work, and then recognizing the right behaviors. Like other bestselling business fables, The Invisible Employee combines a good yarn with great business advice and practical guidance for managers. Following a group of people as they attempt to live and work together on a mysterious island, the book combats one of the most common negative attitudes in business—that smart employees should keep quiet, keep their heads down, and try not to draw attention to themselves. The Invisible Employee argues that this attitude undermines our efforts at building great companies and that effective leaders can break their employees of this negative attitude. The Invisible Employee guides management to learn to engage their staff by setting a clear guiding vision, recognizing the strengths in their employees, and providing a sense of visibility and connection to corporate values and goals. In short, employees feel invisible to corporate leadership because leadership allows them to. This book shows managers how to get involved and lead their people from obscurity to achievement-and reap the rewards across their entire organization.
