Right now, as leaders, many of us feel a similar frustration: implementing myriad interventions and initiatives – and yet no closer to the elusive ‘shoreline’ of employee engagement. To escape a riptide, you need to swim differently! In the same way, if we want to improve employee engagement, we need to lead differently. Backed by solid scientific evidence and packed with stories, examples and anecdotes, this book shows us how.
