Dennis Bakke just released his book, “Decision Maker: Unlock the Potential of Everyone in Your Organization, One Decision at a Time.” In a minute, I will tell how to win a fee copy of the book.

If someone asked you for the key to employee engagement, happiness at work or bottom line results, what would you say? Chances are it would be something like pay-for-performance, employee benefits, a safe work environment or plenty of Dennis Bakke Book - The Decision Maker Bookopportunities. My guess is, decision-making authority would not be at the top of your list, but Dennis Bakke thinks it should.

Dennis first introduced the importance of decision making in his book “Joy at Work: A Revolutionary Approach to Fun on the Job“. Since then, the co-founder and former CEO of AES (a global Fortune 200 power company) and CEO of Imagine Schools, authored a follow up book entitled, “The Decision Maker: Unlock the Potential of Everyone in Your Organization, One Decision at a Time”. The book is Based loosely on Bakke’s experience implementing the Decision Maker Process at AES. Through story, Bakke chronicles the opportunity, struggles and benefits of driving decision-making throughout a company, together with an Advice Process.
