It's The Manager is Gallup's newest Wall Street Journal's Bestseller & Amazon Bestseller.
Gallup Chairman and CEO Jim Clifton was interviewed recently by Phil Laboon of Arianna Huffington's Thrive Global about It's the Manager, the book he coauthored with Gallup Chief Workplace Scientist Jim Harter.
Thrive Global: "Thank you so much for doing this with us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?"
Jim Clifton, Gallup CEO: "Not so much a story, but I have always had an insatiable curiosity to know what all people are thinking. This drives me and inspires me. Amazingly, I get paid to lead an organization that finds out what millions of people are thinking on almost all subjects."
Learn why the manager is key to every aspect of your workplace.
Thrive Global: "Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you began leading your company?"
Clifton: "Gallup has always been known for our U.S. polling, but in 2005, we built a World Poll that covers 160 countries."
Our big breakthrough -- one of Gallup's biggest ever -- is that what the whole world wants is a good job. Our World Poll discovered the great global dream.
That has always blown me away. People all over the world want a good job with mission, purpose -- and one that they're really good at -- with a living wage. This finding gets you pretty close to the meaning of life in the new millennium.
Our big breakthrough -- one of Gallup's biggest ever -- is that what the whole world wants is a good job.
