I had the privilege of delivering a keynote presentation earlier this month for a company in Brazil who brought 600 of their employees together for an offsite meeting. It was my first time in Brazil so I was very interested in learning not only the culture of the country but also that of the organization.
As I informally talked with employees from various teams before my keynote I was struck by how bought in their staff is to their company’s mission. These people were engaged. Even with my language barrier it was clear to me that this organization was doing things well to engage their workforce.
How about your workplace? When you think about the members of the teams you interact with most, how engaged would you say they are?
Research would indicate that they may be less engaged than you think, which is why we’re spending time in this episode with Brad Federman. Brad is the President of Performancepoint, a leading performance improvement company. Brad recently authored Employee Engagement: A Roadmap for Creating Profits, Optimizing Performance, and Increasing Loyalty. I had the opportunity to talk with Brad recently and look forward to sharing that interview with you in this episode.
Hey, I want to let you know that Brad has graciously made two copies of his book Employee Engagement available to our listeners. If you are a Premium Subscriber you are automatically entered into the drawing. If you’re not a Premium Subscriber, send me an e-mail with “Book Drawing” as the subject. Two of our listeners will get Brad’s book sent to them for free.
