"This book is well thought out, well written, and thorough. It contains page after page of examples and is a one point source for ways to make Monday mornings less tedious and more fun. Want to make your employees look forward to the workweek? This is the 'must have' book for you."
"Every administrator needs a copy of this book . . . and should keep it on the top of the 'To Do Pile'."
"The timing of this book is invaluable as our district addresses staff recruitment and retention goals."
"This book is for every well-intended administrator or frustrated staff member! It shows the power of positive reinforcement and the importance of recognition and appreciation in our schools today."
"As a professional trainer, Looking Forward to Monday Morning is a marvelous addition to my collection of icebreakers and team building exercises. Organizations that implement even a few of the ideas in this book will find they have happier, more productive employees who enjoy coming to work."
"Through the use of subtle humor, Hodges gives us extensive ideas and examples of ways we can improve our individual workplace environments. This book was truly enhanced by the inclusion of personal experiences by the author."
"In the spirit of the holiday season we gave all faculty, board members, administrators, and counselors copies of the book."
"Diane Hodges reminds us that there is a vast difference between compensation (the money) and recognition...many talented people leave good jobs and good money simply because they do not feel appreciated or valued as people. Buy the book, read the examples, but even more important, follow through. Go on, show someone you appreciate them!"
"If you ever wanted to thank your staff but didn’t know how, this is the book for you. Hodges notes that surveys show that recognition for a job well done ranks higher as a motivational factor than wages and job security. Principals and managers who actively show how much they value their employees build a positive climate that filters down to students. The ideas contained in this book are sure to tickle your staff and build morale."
The user-friendliness of the text and the world of ideas that can be implemented by administration and even teachers themselves!
