Conant, former president and CEO, Campbell Soup Company and New York Times bestselling author of TouchPoints About the Book: When it comes to employee engagement, Timothy R. Clark goes where no one has gone before. One of todaya€™s leading experts on the subject, Clark reveals that the business world has been focusing on only half the questiona€”namely, the organizationa€™s role in driving employee engagement. Clark points to the other interested partya€”the employee. Through extensive research, the author has discovered that approximately 75 percent of employees are not fully engaged with their worka€”a frighteningly high number with frighteningly dire consequences for both companies and individual employees. The Employee Engagement Mindset is a step-by-step guide to reversing this pattern, one employee at a time. Clark breaks it all down into six key behaviors: Connecting: Form solid relationships with coworkers and align your behavior to the organizationa€™s culture and goals Shaping: Seize opportunities for tailoring experiences based on your personal preferences Learning: Take proactive measures to learn at or above the speed of change Stretching: Move out of your comfort zone and take calculated risks Achieving: Accomplish your goals Contributing: Make personal contributions that drive lasting positive change to others and to the company The Employee Engagement Mindset provides practical advice on how any employee can put him or herself on the fast track to true engagement using this six-part model. With high levels of engagement come organizational success and improvements in employeesa€™ professional and personal lives. Employees who take ownership and pride in their work get results with energy, passion, and purpose. They stay in their jobs longer, innovate faster, and execute better. Simply put, every engaged employee is worth his or her weight in gold. Whether youa€™re in charge of driving employee engagement or feel the need to take personal responsibility for excelling at work, The Employee Engagement Mindset tells you everything you need to know.Some of my a€œlight and funa€ connections are actually connected to each othera€” classic cars and a#39;70s music. ... yesterdaya€”the blue Camaro with the G60 rear tires, Crager rims, air shocks elevating the back end, cruising a€œfog lampsa€ on the front, anbsp;...
