My friend Steve Balzac, author of "Organizational Psychology for Managers" (download book excerpt on Motivation here), answers these questions:
1. Many tech companies handle leadership by promoting an engineer to team management/leadership. Is it true that engineers only respect other engineers as team leaders? What does that do to team performance?
2. You mention the use of games in chapter 8. How can games be used to develop leadership skills and inspire innovation?
3. How can I apply the principles in your book to promote effective organizational change? How can gamification help me there as well?

Find out the answers to these questions and more.

We'll also learn an example of this concept at work: how his company, TWI Services, Inc. provides certified direct marketing services for medical practices.
Consultant, trainer, senior partner with the Chip Bell Group, and co-author of Managers as Mentors: Building Partnerships for Learning, Third Edition, Chip R. Bell describes how the relationship between a mentor and the protege goes far beyond coaching to become a real learning partnership. Chip Bell provides a fresh approach to mentoring that establishes every manager as a potential mentor for colleagues, co-workers, and team members. Instead of simply coaching to create improved performance, Chip Bell demonstrates how the mentorship becomes a mutual and collaborative learning opportunity. Chip Bell outlines the SAGE structure of the mentoring experience. The four steps of Surrendering, Accepting, Gifting, and Extending create a positive and cooperative learning environment that benefits the mentor, the mentee, and the whole organization. Chip Bell also shares ideas for continued, self planned learning after the mentoring experience ends. Learn how to be both a great mentor, and a strong mentee, and share in the lifelong learning process.
