From the #1 New York Times-bestselling author of Drive and A Whole New Mind, a short guide to what not to say when you’re trying to attract talent. In the new economy, everyone is a free agent. That can be a headache for managers—or it can be an opportunity. In this concise manifesto, Daniel Pink, author of Free Agent Nation, equips business leaders with a simple, provocative, and powerful strategy for winning talent wars. By eliminating seven words from their business vocabulary—by banishing the terms that make talented people’s skin crawl and the best employees head for the exits—they can attract and inspire the new economy’s superstars. Spirited and often hilarious, this mini-essay is important reading for every manager in America.
