The book, The Engagement Formula, presents a new leadership model that guarantees full employee engagement. If you implement this new leadership model in your organization, 100 percent of your employees will become engaged with their work - all working at their full potential. Sound impossible?
It is impossible under traditional management methods that emphasize top down direction and control. On the other hand, full employee engagement is routine when you utilize the leadership model presented in this book.

"This book is the complete package when it comes to employee engagement. The Engagement Formula is grounded in relevant theory (McGregor and Maslow), connected to reality (dozens of successful companies are already using it) and it's dead on."
--Harry Paul, coauthor of Fish! and Who Kidnapped Excellence?
The Engagement Formula is for those who know little about motivational behaviour in the workplace. If you are a manager and your staff turnover is above 10% per year, this is a book for you. If you never heard of Southwest Airlines, Google or Zappos success stories about how to create a crowd of engaged fans, this is the best money you will ever spend.

Right Now is the Best Time of Year to Repair any Strained Relationships
With all the good will that gets passed around during the holiday season, it's the perfect time to repair any strained relationships you might have in your life. People are generally in a great mood, which makes them far more open to forgiving and accepting forgiveness. So, if you have any strained relationships, now is the perfect opportunity to make that phone call and say, "I've missed you. Can we get together for lunch sometime soon?" Or, to walk over to a fellow employee's work area and say, "I'm sorry about the way I acted during the meeting last month." If you do this, you'll not only crank up the intensity of the holiday spirit that's already inside you, but you'll start the New Year with a clean slate as well.
Let's all make it a Point to be Extra Nice to Retail Clerks this Holiday Season
As the holiday shopping season ramps up, malls and stores become more and more crowded which greatly increases the stress levels of many shoppers. Some of these up tight shoppers vent their increased stress at retail clerks by being rude, mean and nasty toward them. This, in turn, makes their job incredibly difficult and thankless during what should be a very happy time of the year. If you want to make a big difference in these clerks' lives, you might consider being extra nice to them this time of the year. As they're ringing up your merchandise, smile and say something to them that brightens their day. You'll find that doing so not only puts a smile on their face, it will put one on yours as well. This is what the holiday season is all about.
