I strongly recommend Dr. Ira Wolfe's book, "Understanding
Business Values & Motivators." Dr. Wolfe writes
in a Blanchard style of getting the information across in
an easy, understandable and practical way. With a better
understanding of our "motivators", we can do a
much better job of relating to our employees, enhancing
productivity and reducing our workday stress.

Ira Wolfe does it again! Every business owner, large company
executive, and human resource manager needs to read Understanding
Business Values and Motivators. Ira describes simply and elegantly
how to understand what people value. The business values and
motivators instrument is perhaps THE missing link in our assessment
models to date. Read and be enlightened. Apply and profit.
