I am David Zinger your network host. I am a Canadian and global employee engagement speaker, educator, and expert.

I have devoted over 14,000 hours on engagement in the past 7 years and have worked on the topic since the early 1980's (before we even used the term). I simply define employee engagement as good work done well with others every day.

I have spoken around the globe in New York, Dubai, Singapore, Mumbai, South Africa, Berlin, Montreal, London, Vancouver, Wales, Washington, Toronto, Barcelona and many other fine locations.

My services focus on behavioral engagement interventions derived from the pyramid of employee engagement. I teach others how to use small, simple, strategic, and sustainable evidenced-based actions as leaders, managers, or employees to improve and increase engagement for the benefit of the organization and themselves. Click here for a brief overview of the pyramid of engagement.

Learn how to fully apply the 10-block pyramid of employee engagement where you work. Achieve better: results, performance, progress, relationships, recognition, moments, strengths, meaning, well-being, and energy.

Featured Blog: 5 Ways to Make Your Next Recognition Stand Out

This is a featured blog post from Roy Saunderson,

5 Ways to Make Your Next Recognition Stand Out

Let’s stop doing the trite and tried and true acts of recognition giving. Get out of the boring recognition ruts and make your next recognition experience a stand out occasion.

Read, ponder, and do the following:

1. The recognition you plan to give has to be a total surprise. When you get recognition right it is the most fun and thrilling thing to do for someone else. Recognition should be a surprise and never expected. Rewards are earned and naturally anticipated. You can make your recognition stand out simply by not letting the cat out of the bag ahead of time. Surprise them!

2. Give recognition from your heart and not from your pocketbook. Recognition is a relationship-based skill. The more positive relationship you have between one person and another the more meaningful recognition will be between you. Not a good relationship? Then the recognition won’t be good either. Share your feelings about what they did using great adjectives to express your recognition to them. Emote recognition!
