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.

The book is an uncomplicated read, with simple concepts and corroborative evidence from many frontline companies. The implementation guide is indeed a user-friendly tool kit that succinctly addresses all the jigsaw pieces to make the gestalt look complete. A perfect book for anyone who struggles with why employees do not seem engaged!"

"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.
--Martin Wiedenhoff, Digital Marketing Evangelist at 360decision.com, Montreal, Canada
"The key competitive advantage for any organization is having an engaged workforce. This book shares steps on how some of the world's best organizations retain their edge. Learn how to achieve higher levels of loyalty, productivity and profitability."

Cell Phones do not Excuse us from noticing People in Need
Jeff Lewis is a friend of mine who is a quadruple amputee which means he has prosthetic hands and feet. Not long ago, he was riding the light rail which runs from Mesa, Arizona to downtown Phoenix. When he boarded the train, there were no empty seats, so he had to stand. As the train took off with a jerk, he had to grab a perpendicular pole with both his prosthetic hands. Most of the people in his train car had their noses buried in their cell phones and did not look up to notice that Jeff needed a seat. The only person who offered him a seat was a very elderly woman who had difficulty walking. Of course Jeff turned her down since he felt that her need for a seat was worse than his. My advice is this: take a break from your cell phone every now and then and look around you to see if there’s someone in need whom you can help. You could find yourself in a position to do someone a huge favor.
Jeff Metcalfe recently wrote a story for The Arizona Republic about a man named Bryan Caldwell who played football for Arizona State University during the late 70’s-early 80’s. Two years ago, he was diagnosed with a Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a cancer of the immune system and he knew he would not live much longer. According to the article, “Caldwell was told he would survive only six months without chemotherapy and other invasive treatment. He lived for two years on his terms in Palacios, Texas, before dying Saturday at age 54. ‘This way is a whole lot better,’ he said. ‘I caught a lot more fish than the other way,’ in the hospital.” I applaud Mr. Caldwell for having the courage to live out his life on his own terms rather than being chained to a hospital bed with no quality of life.
