Look around your business. Are your people committed to your goals? Or are they merely complying with them? Imagine how much further you could go if everyone knew where they were going and actually wanted to get there ... It’s just common sense that the more committed people are to their work, the more they’re going to put in and the more your business will get out. The evidence bears this out: engagement levels predict profitability. But how do you make sure people are on board? The Extra Mile shows you how to achieve that extra competitive edge by harnessing the commitment of your people, and engaging them with your aims. The Extra Mile is the result of four years of research into engagement by a joint team from Cass Business School and Towers Perrin. This ambitious and wide ranging project drew on the results of various studies and surveys which together totalled 33 million respondents. These hard-hitting statistics were supplemented by more than 50 in-depth interviews with executives and leaders drawn from a variety of business sectors. You will hear from some of them in their own words in this compelling book which distils the results of the research and the interviews into a compelling and engaging read that will make managers think again about how to get their teams to go that all-important extra mile.

As a highly successful musician and producer, Rickey Minor has worked with some of the world’s most celebrated performers. He knows firsthand that there are reasons why some people succeed, while others fail despite their talent.

In There's No Traffic on the Extra Mile, Minor spins stories from his life in the music business into inspirational gold, imparting the lessons he has learned the hard way, including: • Always give people more than they were expecting. But remember that you can’t please everyone all the time. • Look for mentors. Minor recounts how Quincy Jones became his. • Why every action moves you closer or farther away from your aspiration—and how to tell the difference. • If you can’t get what you want, it may be because youÂ’re not ready yet. When the time comes, you’ll know. He also provides juicy behind-the-scenes anecdotes about Idol contestants, and the keys to their success. He sees the show as a condensed version of life itself. The setbacks the performers face, and their triumphs, mirror our own. But his bottom line, no matter what your field of endeavor, is this: If you drive hard enough, sooner or later you will be the only one left on the road.

An experiment is under way in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem: a woman, recently widowed, is starting a trial period in assisted living, mainly to placate her over-anxious son, whilst in Jerusalem her daughter Noga, a young harpist, returns from her job with a Dutch orchestra to look after the family apartment. To enliven her stay, Noga's brother finds work for her - playing roles as an extra in film, TV, and in the opera Carmen. The random roles Noga is thrust into resonate strangely with her own life which she begins to re-evaluate. Central to her past is the fact that she refused to have children, resulting in the break-up of her marriage. No-one in her family understood her motives for not wanting children and everyone has a different explanation for it. Now, a chance encounter with her former husband reveals his continuing powerful, love as well as a shocking deed she committed during their marriage. But Noga is a free spirit neither tied to the past nor defined by it, and always keen to push boundaries. She lives for her music and is willing to go wherever it takes her. The three-month experiment proves as much of a test for her as for her mother and both are radically transformed by the end. A.B. Yehoshua is as creative, humorous and provocative as ever in The Extra, exploring themes familiar to him of love, family relationships and artistic ambitions, set mainly in an ever-changing Jerusalem.

Is the chance to serve as an extra for Hitler’s favorite filmmaker a chance at life — or a detour on the path to inevitable extermination? One ordinary afternoon, fifeen-year-old Lilo and her family are suddenly picked up by Hitler’s police and imprisoned as part of the "Gypsy plague." Just when it seems certain that they will be headed to a labor camp, Lilo is chosen by filmmaker Leni Riefenstahl to work as a film extra. Life on the film set is a bizarre alternate reality. The surroundings are glamorous, but Lilo and the other extras are barely fed, closely guarded, and kept in a locked barn when not on the movie set. And the beautiful, charming Riefenstahl is always present, answering the slightest provocation with malice, flaunting the power to assign prisoners to life or death. Lilo takes matters into her own hands, effecting an escape and running for her life. In this chilling but ultimately uplifting novel, Kathryn Lasky imagines the lives of the Gypsies who worked as extras for the real Nazi filmmaker Leni Riefenstahl, giving readers a story of survival unlike any other.
