Engagement at work

Magic Dust

“Engagement is an outcome of a mutual commitment between an organization and an employee where the organization is helping the employee reach his/her potential, while the individual is helping the organization also be successful. This mutual commitment is what leads to ‘discretionary effort’ which is the magic dust that really drives business performance.” – Bob Kelleher

Follow the Leader

“Children imitate their parents. Employees their managers.” – Amit Kalantri

Puzzle Pieces

“Business and human endeavors are systems…we tend to focus on snapshots of isolated parts of the system. And wonder why our deepest problems never get solved.” – Peter Senge

Ch-ch-ch-changes

“We must all learn not only to fear change, but to embrace it enthusiastically and, perhaps even more important, encourage and drive it.” – Tony Hsieh

3 Stages of Leadership

“The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between, the leader is a servant.” – Max Depree

The Whole Enchilada

“Employees who believe that management is concerned about them as a whole person – not just an employee – are more productive, more satisfied, more fulfilled. Satisfied employees mean satisfied customers, which leads to profitability.” – Anne M. Mulcahy

Try Something New

“A real decision is measured by the fact that you’ve taken a new action. If there’s no action, you have’t truly decided” – Tony Robbins

Remember the Name

“Calling a person by name makes him/her feel recognized, appreciated, and special. It shows respect and that you are genuinely interested in making a connection. You make them feel remembered!” – Susan C. Young

Shout Out

Happy Whole Human Daily Quote – Engagement at Work “Everyone wants to be appreciated, so if you appreciate someone, don’t keep it a secret.” – Mary Kay Ash

No Accounting for Accountability

“It all came down to employee engagement. It all came down to recognition. It all came down to leadership, which led to every sailor feeling ownership and accountability for the results. You can ask a team to accomplish a mission but you can’t order excellence.” – Mike Abrashoff
