Description: The great competition today is not just for customers, but for American employees. How do you attract the best, keep them happy, and harness their considerable ingenuity and entrepreneurism? Indeed, how do you find common ground at all on which to organize so resourceful yet so individualistic, so diverse, and often so contentious a work force, the most talented of whom are also often the most iconoclastic?

Mavericks in the Workplace shows that such traits, once regarded as debilitating weaknesses, are in fact sources of great strength for organizations. The key to tapping them is not Human Resources programs, piling on more perks, or even pricey compensation programs. The key can be found in a clearer understanding of our social, cultural, and political heritage. William Lee draws on intensive work by historians, who have brilliantly pieced together the puzzle of what makes Americans tick. How do they normally organize, for example, when faced with the most daunting tasks? What bonds them to groups, and to each other? What sort of leadership do they respect and respond to most strongly? Above all, how do they best form into societies (and every business is a small society) that harness their considerable wealth-creating potential? The answers will shock conventional management wisdom -- but they will resonate with the employees you want to hire and keep.
