Kirk Snyder’s book  The G Quotient (Jossey Bass/Wiley & Son's) is based on a five-year study about the beliefs and behaviors of more than three thousand working professionals across a wide spectrum of business sectors. Addressing the plummeting low levels of employee engagement, job satisfaction and workplace morale  in the United States, Snyder undertook a long-range research project that uncovered a unique exception to this downward trend in employee dissatisfaction.

From Fortune 500 companies to entrepreneurial enterprises, Snyder explains in The G Quotient why employees of white-collar gay executives are responding to a new ethos and pathos of business leadership resulting in record high levels of employee engagement, satisfaction, and morale.  A mainstream business book, recommended by Harvard Business Review and named one of the Best Management Books of the Year by strategy+business, whether you are managing teams of a few or a few thousand, The G Quotient provides all managers with vital information and insight about fully engaging the strengths and talents of today’s ever-changing workforce.
