In her first book, Unlock Behavior, Unleash Profits: How Your Leadership Behavior Can Unlock Profitability in Your Organization (2000, McGraw-Hill), author Leslie Wilk Braksick describes the critical role behavior plays in successfully executing business strategies. She uses real-world examples to illustrate exactly how behavior impacts everything from employee performance and retention, to implementing technology systems, and reducing manufacturing cycle times. The book also provides the feedback and coaching tools that Braksick herself uses with executives to help leaders move employees from mere compliance to genuine commitment. "The ability to apply behavioral science consistently is a key distinguishing feature of great leaders," says Braksick. The book also includes advice on how best to integrate two corporate cultures after a merger.
