Overview

When Engaged Leadership was first published in 2007, a majority of employees in the United States had already mentally checked out on the job—and that was before the ax came down in 2008 and 2009. Without a doubt, employee disengagement still exists, and if you want your business to survive, you need a plan to overcome it.

High unemployment and a limping recovery have provided even more reasons for building a culture of engagement. Those left in the workforce—now doing the work of two or more people and living in fear of a pink slip—may be more productive, but you can't call them engaged. As the economy turns around, your industrious workers will have options they haven't had in years—and if they're unhappy, they'll jump ship.

Engaged Leadership offers both a fable and a step-by-step blueprint to ensure a culture of engagement that will draw employees out of their rut and keep your best and brightest. Learn how to:

  • Recruit support from the top 29 percent—those employees who are engaged—to influence others to get on board with the new culture

  • Prepare your organization for change and provide open and honest communication with employees about the company's performance and their own

  • Motivate employees by celebrating small successes, encouraging work-life balance, and creating a fair work environment

  • Lead across generational divides

  • Identify and recruit appropriate talent, according to their needs and yours

With job satisfaction in the United States at its lowest level in two decades, disengagement has reached epidemic proportions. The key to your company's recovery—and that of the entire economy—lies in everyone's willingness to join a new culture of engagement.
