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 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."

Setting Aside time for Uninterrupted Reading is a great way to Unplug Setting aside 30-45 minutes a day in a quiet environment free of distractions to read a book is a great way to unplug from our ever increasing pace of life and recharge your batteries. A recent article by Jeanne Whalen which appeared in The Wall Street Journal noted that cultivating such a habit brings with it a number of additional benefits as well. People who set aside regular time to read said it, “…improves their ability to concentrate, reduces stress levels and deepens their ability to think, listen and empathize.” In addition to all this, there’s the sheer pleasure that goes along with being absorbed by a good book. I started doing this several years ago and I can’t believe the positive difference it has made in my life.
Greed is all about compromising your integrity in the pursuit of money or power. The National Football League (NFL) is becoming increasingly greedy. It has recently been said that the NFL has” lost its moral compass” and is “selling its soul.” Recently, the NFL has chosen to turn its head on some domestic violence incidents and allowed charged or convicted players to continue to play. It also has been slow in responding to issues involving player safety—especially in the area of concussions. Now, it even wants Super Bowl half-time performers to pay for the privilege instead of the NFL paying them for their services. Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks of the National Basketball Association had this to say about the NFL’s greed in a recent issue of USA Today: “When you try to take it too far, people turn the other way....I’m just telling you, when you’ve got a good thing and you get greedy, it always, always, always, always turns on you. That’s rule No. 1 of business.” I think Mr. Cuban’s comments are well put. Incidentally, he’s predicting that because of its obsession with greed, the NFL will implode within the next ten years.
