Employee engagement drives superior performance—it's that simple. Good leaders know this, and take active steps to promote it. Yet engagement is a two-way street; no program works without employees stepping up and participating. If you're a leader, this participation is the key to your team's breakthrough results. If you're a team member, it's the ticket for more life satisfaction and career advancement.
In his debut book titled Engaged Leadership, author Clint Swindall addressed the leader's role in employee engagement. Through this popular business fable, Clint introduced readers to Seth Owen, a young management recruit who helps his boss build a culture of employee engagement. In this eye-opening follow-up to Engaged Leadership, Clint retells the fable from the perspective of Miles Freeman, an employee of Seth's who struggles with the disengagement of everyone around him. With the help of some insightful and timely training on life balance, Miles discovers that employee engagement is the result of some specific choices he and his coworkers make in their personal lives.
