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.

A recent article in USA Today written by Nanci Hellmich discussed ways that people could enrich their lives during their retirement years. She said the key is to: "...get out and try new things." I think she's right on the money, but we don't have to wait until we retire to take advantage of this idea. Trying new things adds spice to life no matter what our age is. For example, during the last year, I started preparing and eating more vegetarian dishes. Because of this, I've tasted many new flavors that I didn't even know existed. This experience has been a wonderful, exciting and fun adventure and there are still many flavors I haven't tasted. The article pointed out how many pre-retirees feared being bored when they retired. My response to this is how can you be bored when there are so many new things to try? I'm not just talking about new foods, but new restaurants, new books, new activities, new stores, new friends and so forth. So follow Ms. Hellmich's advice and get out there and try some new things. If you don't want to do it alone, do it with a friend or a group of friends. You've got everything to gain and absolutely nothing to lose.
Lacey Holsworth, the eight year old girl with terminal cancer who developed a strong relationship with Adreian Payne, the star player of the Michigan State University men's basketball team, became this year's human interest story during the NCAA men's basketball tournament. Why did the nation take such notice of her? Because she met the adversity life had thrown at her head on with courage and a huge smile. She didn't whine and she didn't complain. Instead she sent out words of encouragement to the players on the basketball team and to her "Superman," Adreian Payne. According to The Detroit News, One of her final posts on Twitter before she died accompanied a picture of her and Adreian Payne. It read, "There is only ONE Superman, I'm so proud of you Adreian." Because of her courage and her smile, this tiny little girl left an amazing legacy.
