David Zinger - Founder / Host

We have 6585 Members

I am David Zinger your network host. I am a Canadian and global employee engagement speaker, educator, and expert who has 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 define employee engagement as good work done well with others every day.

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

I focus on behavioral engagement interventions based on the pyramid of employee engagement. We 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.

Weekly Engagement Cartoon #451 from John Junson

Featured article from Rideau: Compliments Are Easy, Roy Saunderson

Let’s not make excuses for not complimenting people.
I was in a corporate office the other day in downtown Toronto and met this very friendly receptionist who greeted us and directed us to where to hang our coats, locate the washrooms, and then notified our meeting organizer of our arrival. When leaving my meeting and picking up my coat from the closet I couldn’t help but overhear this wonderful receptionist in action.
Some dear customer was calling the company and had some obvious concerns from the one sided comments from the receptionist. Her remarks followed along the lines of something like this: (click here to read the full post)

The Wonder Of Interconnectedness

Life is not a puzzle to be solved but a mystery to be lived.   Thomas Merton

This blog is about the interconnectedness of the universe I live in, but don’t understand. And yet I am in awe. To me, having a sense of wonderment is important. Awe is a mixed emotion of reverence, respect and wonder. This is the way I feel when I learn that everything is connected to everything else in an unbroken wholeness. It is this unbroken wholeness that is the mystery and wonder of my life. To read more of Gelatt's awe click here.

Featured Internal Blog by Robert Morris: Review of A Beautiful Constraint

Here is the central paradox of a constraint: it can be both a limitation and a liberation.” Pablo Picasso

As I began to read this immensely entertaining as well as informative book, I was also reminded of an observation by another icon of disruptive creativity, Igor Stravinsky: "The more constraints one imposes, the more one frees one's self. And the arbitrariness of the constraint serves only to obtain precision of execution."

I agree with Adam Morgan and Mark Barden that a constraint is a limitation, "imposed by outside circumstances or by ourselves, that materially affects our ability to do something. Constraints fall into four different groups: constraints of foundation (where we are limited in something that is usually seen as a foundational element for success); constraints of resource (where we are limited in an important resource, such as money or people); constraints of time (where we are limited in the amount of time we have to do something); and constraints of method (where we are limited by having to do something in a certain way." As with beauty, viewing a constraint as a limitation or as an inspiration is usually in the eye of the beholder.
