Blurb: The transformational workplace of the twenty-first century is front and center. Are you ready to navigate its twists and turns toward reaching your career goals and dreams? In Hire Train Monitor Motivate, author and veteran organizational leader, David J. Waldron, offers powerful, yet simple techniques that can dramatically improve your organization, team, or individual career achievements in today’s hyper-competitive local and global marketplaces.

This practical book will teach you how to master the art of workplace effectiveness by first making a lasting commitment to placing people first, whether a customer, recruit, staff member, or coworker. Then hire, or get hired for an optimistic mindset; train, or be trained for delivering quality products and services; monitor, or allow monitoring for regulatory compliance; and motivate, or stay motivated for enduring performance.

As a practitioner more so than an academic, Waldron, presents unpretentious, everyday workplace rules that when implemented, or followed, can transform your organization, team, or individual career to one of lasting distinction. Master the proven techniques for playing the game the right way and learn how to practice leadership or teamwork by inclusion toward making your workplace a great place to learn, earn, and grow.

Hire Train Monitor Motivate guides the reader toward recognizing his or her essential role in today’s transformational workplace. A work environment—whether for-profit, nonprofit, or in the public service—that requires an understanding and buy-in to the Millennial Model, the cultural transition of the now predominant generation that, according to Waldron, is fast becoming the new standard in organizational behavior, group dynamics, and individual effectiveness. This horizontal hierarchical model will likely drive the influential organizations, teams, and careers of the twenty-first century as the vertical hierarchy of the Baby Boomer generation did in the twentieth century.

Waldron guides the reader in embracing crucial areas of the modern workplace. Join him as he explores the emerging dominance of the expert economy; the importance of lifelong learning and perpetual career development; and how to be an active participant—as opposed to the spectator—on the precipice of reinventing compensation and worker equality. Plus, why accepting the significance of work/life balance will remain necessary to sustainable career success.

Whether an owner, donor, leader, manager, supervisor, or staff member, make a commitment to your essential role in the transformational workplace. Read Hire Train Monitor Motivate, today, and make your workplace a great place tomorrow. Your organization, team, and career are counting on you.

My Review:

To begin with, this is a quick, good read. Usually the books that talk about HR and management wisdom and the like read as textbooks, always didactic, always sleep-inducing. What sets this book apart is the fact that this isn't a lengthy text or research paper that uses jargons to make a point look valid.
For one, it is a fairly quick read, and while you'll surely want to make notes and markers and jot down tips from it, it doesn't take you very long to absorb the meaning that the book is trying to convey.
There are umpteen professional, hands-on tips on important HR activities like interviews, group discussions, hiring, incentives, among other things. So, even if you are not hiring but are getting hired, it provides useful insights from the other side of the table. I have myself made a lot of markers at different pages to refer to these points in the future.
If you're a part of any organization, which at some level, each one of us is, then, in my opinion, you need to apprise yourself with the mechanics of the crucial processes of hiring, training, etc.
So, to give you an example, it talks about ninety-day impact, which is a very useful piece of information, considering its knowledge will help everyone in the system aim at higher efficiency.

With short paragraphs and short snippets on every HR topic under the sun, I can see myself coming back to the book for reference purposes in the future.
Simply put, here is some practical knowledge. here are some techniques that work.
The other things- the title, the cover are also so precise and apt that they reflect and portray the meaning of the book quite well.
So now, while this book is certainly not boring as a textbook, while imparting equal, if not more, information, still there's a scope for including more and more anecdotes and maybe engaging comments/exercises. It would have drawn me to read the book almost instantly.
The author's own experiences have been drawn inspiration from, considering his amazing background in the field and his body of work. No doubt, this book is a resource for anyone who wishes to enhance his/her knowledge about human resource management.
