When we disengage we miss out…
Disengagement is depressing. Disengagement not only has an impact on the organization and customers it has an impact on the employee. Employees miss out on bringing their best to work and to their life and according to recent research from Gallup: People who are actively disengaged in their careers are nearly twice as likely to be diagnosed with depression over the next year.
Unused potential. Engagement is about personal and professional development
It’s not what you are: it’s what you don’t become that hurts. ~ Oscar Levant
Treat a man as he appears to be, and you make him worse. But treat a man as if he were what he potentially could be, and you make him what he should be. ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
An engaging workplace. How are you ensuring that you have an engaging workplace for the health, well being, and development of all employees and full development and results of the organization?

When supporting clients, my colleague, Caroline Wrobel, often carries out an anaysis of dissatisfaction – which often brings out some very different drivers to an analysis of engagement. Getting both of these elements right will lead to much better business results
