Regular readers will have already realized that the Practice What You Preach podcast is based on my 2001 book of the same name. In the book I present the results of a study of the factors that drive financial success. Surveying 139 offices of 29 firms in 15 countries in many different lines of business, I asked a simple question: are employee attitudes correlated with financial success? The answer, as the book shows, is an unequivocal “yes!”
The podcast also draws from ideas I discuss in these 3 articles:
- Could Happy Workers Double Your Profits?
- Culture Drives Performance: Now There’s Proof
- Forget Money, Think Passion
and these 3 previous conversations on my blog:
I’d really love to get some reactions to the podcast episode. Did you like it? Did the findings of my study match your experience?
