The raw material of employee engagement is energy. Are you an energy gain or energy drain for your organization?
Leaders are the stewards of organizational energy – in companies, organizations and even in families. They inspire or demoralize others first by how effectively they manage their own energy and next by how well they mobilize, focus, invest and renew the collective energy of those they lead. The skillful management of energy, individually and organizationally, makes possible something that we call full engagement. ~ Loehr & Schwartz, The Power Of Full Engagement.
