In today's business environment, people, rather than products, technology and processes, are increasingly becoming the crucial factor in differentiating profitable organizations from those that are not. It is therefore important to understand employee commitment and loyalty in organizations. This book begins by defining loyalty, the types of loyalty (emotional and behavioural) and how these can be measured and interpreted. The author discusses the potency of combining the two types of loyalty to segment employees into different categories which can then yield loyalty rankings. He goes on to discuss the elements that can be tweaked and managed and which impact on the loyalty scores of an employee. This book concludes with the processes involved in building accountability in order to ensure that everyone in the organization is aligned to, and expends energy in, building employee loyalty.

"If, like some, you regret that Montessori too rarely in her writings appreciated the humanity of teachers-their creativity, their curiosity, their doubts-this book stands as the perfect complement." Evocative and unique, The Tao of Montessori offers a quiet balance to the noisy demands of teaching and parenting through a special blend of encouraging verse. Award-winning Montessori teacher Catherine McTamaney revisits the eighty-one verses of Lao-tzu's Tao Te Ching and relates them to the life and work of teachers, parents, and children. Originally meant to remind rather than direct and to show the way toward natural harmony in the world around and within us, Lao-tzu's verses find a new meaning through McTamaney's skillful mixture of spirituality and education. Take a moment to read a single stanza, then put it aside and muse upon its meaning. By revisiting one verse each day, you can relate its images to your life as a teacher, parent, or child. Whether you are familiar with the writings of Lao-tzu or are simply ready to explore a refreshingly contemplative perspective on children and teachers, The Tao of Montessori is a profound work of intellectual stimulation.
