Back Cover Copy

Make It Matter should matter to anyone who manages other people in any kind of business. The ideas within were key for me when I was running J. Walter Thompson North America—only I hadn’t thought it through nearly as clearly as Scott Mautz.” — James Patterson, bestselling author and former CEO of JWT North America

How many people find a sense of meaning and fulfillment in their jobs? Studies show that most do not. Their bodies may put in long hours, but their hearts and minds never really punch in. And that’s a terrible dilemma for organizations trying to coax their workforces to do more with less.

Make It Matter is the antidote to crisis levels of disengagement. This upbeat, original book shows how meaning-rich workplaces connect people, cultivate their well-being, and motivate them to make their work hours count and their results matter. Not only does the book make a convincing case for change, it also explains how to become the kind of place where people love to work—and the kind of leader they love to work for.

A paycheck may keep employees parked at their desks, but only meaning inspires them to give their all.

Advance Praise for Make It Matter:

“I have long believed that creating a sense of meaning and purpose and that recognizing that ‘everyone counts’ are fundamental for breakthrough performance. Scott Mautz validates these beliefs based on practical marketplace experience and goes on to show the reader how to achieve these outcomes in his or her own organization.” — John Pepper, retired CEO and chairman of P&G

“Scott Mautz is one of the most effective and inspiring leaders I’ve ever known. I thought he was just a born leader until I read this book. Then I realized just how intentional his approach was. Yours can be too. In Make It Matter he shares an astounding concept—and provides 35+ powerful tools—for creating motivation, fulfillment, and peak performance that sustains.” — Paul Smith, author of Lead with a Story and Parenting with a Story
