Fun works : creating places where people love to work by Leslie Yerkes( Book )
25 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 474 libraries worldwide
Leading-edge organizations have discovered that fun can--and does--translate into bottom line success. By harnessing the power of fun, companies find they can better retain employees and customers, motivate teams, improve productivity, increase innovation, and create a sense of community. Leslie Yerkes details precisely how eleven successful companies--including Southwest Airlines, Pike Place Fish, Isle of Capri Casinos, EmployEase, and Prudential--have integrated fun into the normal course of business. This new edition provides updates on how these same companies have grown, prospered, and continued to thrive--in spite of national tragedies, natural disaster, growing competition, and changing economic conditions--in part because of the culture they have created through what Yerkes calls "The Fun/Work Fusion." Yerkes illustrates eleven principles--from capitalizing on the spontaneous to hiring good people and getting out of their way--that will inspire you to inject a sense of playfulness and joy into your workplace. Full of real-life examples, strategies, ideas, resources, tools, tips, and techniques, Fun Works will help any company in any industry become a place where people love to work

Beans : four principles for running a business in good times or bad : a business fable taken from real life by Leslie Yerkes( Book )
8 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and Chinese and held by 301 libraries worldwide
This is a true story about The El Espresso coffee shop. Although the real-life coffee shop goes by another name, this small business is typical of many other businesses, large and small, that operate every day across America and around the world. The El Espresso has chosen to stay small and do what it does best: serve its customers well. In this age of headlines about corporate executives run amok, Jack and Dianne Hartman, the owners of The El Espresso are the kind of businesspeople who deserve a little good press. For more than twenty years, they have stayed true to their values and their principles. In the process, they have created a business that has earned the reputation for serving Seattle's best coffee - coffee good enough to make people willing to line up in the rain to buy a cup. To help you apply the principles of Beans to your own workplace, the book poses some great questions at the end, designed to help you examine the state of your own relationship with work - whether you are the owner, the manager, or an employee. As you read Beans, you will experience a business where everyone wants to be a regular, where the customer is known and respected, and there is an honest blur between serving people and running a business. Learn the lessons of Beans and this can be your business too
They just don't get it! : changing resistance into understanding by Leslie Yerkes( Book )
8 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 173 libraries worldwide
"They Just Don't Get It! explores an all-too-common dilemma: what to do when people around us just don't get it. Through the use of a charming illustrated fable, Yerkes and Martin tell the story of Julie Buffet, a hard-charging executive with what she thinks is a fantastic idea. But nobody gets it - not the client, not her boss, and not her coworkers. And Julie doesn't understand why." "We have all found ourselves in this situation and we typically view the problem as a failing on their part. They Just Don't Get It! shows us that changing resistance into understanding is a conscious decision that's more about us than it is about them."

Told over the span of a single day, it follows The El's founder, Jack Hartman, through a business crisis that will challenge him and make him clear on why he does what he does. Unsure of whether he has lost the passion needed to sustain his business, Jack hires a consultant who flies to Seattle to "help" him but in reality bears witness to the secrets of good business, whether it's a com
