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.

Life Advice from Julia Child
I recently watched an episode of Sara’s Weeknight Meals hosted by Sara Moulton on Public Television. This particular show was dedicated to her former mentor Julia Child. Sara said that she learned many things from Julia that she still carries with her today. The things she mentioned are sound advice for living a happy and successful life. First, “always strive for excellence.” Even if you are mowing the lawn, do the best job you possibly can—always let excellence define you. Second,” never stop learning.” This guarantees that life will never become boring for you and that you will never be a bore to other people. Finally, “have fun.” Life is meant to be enjoyed to the fullest, so let it happen. This is why Julia Child always had a smile on her face and why so many people stood in line just to shake her hand.
To worry is human. Even though we know it does no good, most of us are still prone to worrying. While worrying is next to impossible to avoid, there are some things we can do to reduce its intensity. First, don’t worry alone–you’re far more likely to come up with a solution to your concern if you share it with a friend. Second, learn more about the issue you’re concerned with. You may find that your information is incorrect and you’ve been worrying about nothing. Third, open your eyes and look around you. You’ll quickly find that that there are a lot of people out there who are facing far more serious problems than you. This will make your problem seem much smaller by comparison. Finally, if a problem or concern is eating you alive and there’s nothing you can do about it, take a deep breath and let go. Remember, worry doesn’t solve your problems or take away your troubles, but it does take away your happiness.
