This book is designed to address attendance improvement, but it also addresses other areas that influence attendance, such as record-keeping, good communication, and follow-up. Leadership approach and high expectation will ensure attendance improvement in only a short period of time. This book is designed to give managers tools to monitor and regulate attendance in such a way that employees will: - Desire to come to work - Believe it is important for them to be at work - Believe their manager is thinking about them when they are not at work The goal in writing this book is to transform the work place from one of hostility between management and employees to cooperation and mutual respect. I believe-and have proved- that the potential of managers and employees working together is unlimited. This book can-and should be-implemented in work areas of any size." // from the Foreword Curtis Byrd is a motivational speaker of thirteen years and an experienced executive manager with effective teaching and administrative skills that impact others to learn how to lead by example.
