About the Book

The key to long-term organizational success is

the ability to move employees to action. Easier

said than done, right? Not really. All it takes is three

simple 20-minute conversations.

Alan Vengel has spent 25 years helping Fortune 500

companies empower their employees to perform at

peak efficiency, generating measurable results

organization-wide. Now, in 20 Minutes to a Top

Performer, Vengel shares the secret to his and his

clients’ success: good old-fashioned communication.

Inside, he explains how to engage your

employees through specific, focused conversations,

of which there are exactly three:

    Coaching:

    Focusing on performance and feedback

    Motivating:

    Focusing on engagement and interests

    Mentoring:

    Focusing on support and development

Vengel dissects these types of conversations to

illuminate how, why, and when to initiate each one.

The conversations are not meant to be technical.

They won’t be uncomfortable or combative. They will

simply be … conversations. And you’ll be surprised

at how quickly you see results. Your people will become

better team players, take greater enjoyment in

their work, tackle problems with verve, and, in the

end, contribute valuable talent to your organization

for the long term.

Managers are facing unprecedented demands to do

more with less-a trend that is clearly not going to

reverse in the foreseeable future. You don’t need a Harvard Business School degree or expensive new

technology to empower your workforce. All you need

is the drive to make change happen.
