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.
--Martin Wiedenhoff, Digital Marketing Evangelist at 360decision.com, Montreal, Canada

The other day, I looked out my office window and saw a half-grown starling perched on the branch of an olive tree. It seemed as if he hadn’t been flying very long and appeared to be excited about his new-found freedom. He hopped from place to place on the branch, each time stopping and moving his head from side to side taking in the sights as if he were seeing them for the very first time. His mouth was open as if he were smiling and marveling at all the beautiful things he saw. He seemed to be a truly happy being. The lesson for us is that we live in same world as that young starling. And, just like that starling, wonderful and beautiful things pass by our eyes on a continual basis, but because we’re so often focused on other things, we fail to take them in. So, if you want to add some joy to your life, start acting like that young bird. Every now and then stop where you are, take a deep breath and look from side to side for the sole purpose of taking in the beauty that’s in front of you. It will be fun to see what you discover.
A Hollywood Star who knew how to be a Star
James Garner passed away a few weeks ago. I really enjoyed his televisions shows like Maverick and The Rockford Files because he came across as a guy who was easy to be around. I did some checking and it turns out he actually was. Mr. Garner was an atypical Hollywood star. The word most commonly used to describe him was “affable” which means he was pleasantly easy to approach and talk to, friendly, cordial and warmly polite. Tom Selleck was quoted in Variety.com saying that, “…every actor should take “star lessons” from James Garner.” Mr. Garner also got married once and stayed that way. He was just a few days short of his 58th wedding anniversary when he died. Such is the legacy of a man who was comfortable in his own skin and saw no need to put on airs.
