"Hi Paul, glad you work/ed for SBUX, love them, their culture and their coffee! Wrote most of my book in my local one! Yes I agree 100% that its not either or....I was just saying that without the right culture the poor supervisor is lost. I have the…"

"David, I don't think it's either or (culture vs. management/supervisors)...it's both. But like the Tom Peters clip referred to by Ian suggests, the immediate supervisor is THE vital link. I believe that's true at every level in…"

David Bowles commented on Paul Meshanko's blog post Employee Engagement: Does it Really Matter?
"Guys don't you think perhaps we are focusing too much on front line supervisors here? I mean asking supervisors to be responsible for employee engagement in a bad environment is like trying to swim up the American River in snowmelt season.…"

"Ian, I feel your pain! I believe that all management and front-line supervisory training ought to have either an EE component or minimally an EI segment. Managing (optimizing) the first-line emotional connection between individual contributors and…"

"What I would call a realistic, balanced and "grown up" post Paul. I don't really have an awful lot more to add. Clearly most Organisation Development, of which employee engagement is clearly a component, relies predominantly on…"

Employee Engagement: Does it Really Matter?

Over the past few years, there’s been much written about employee engagement (EE). What it is, what it isn’t, is it important and (assuming it is) how do you get it? In fact, there are literally hundreds of small to mid-size consulting, survey and training firms that have either sprung up or “morphed” from related fields to become EE experts.The general notion of employee engagement is simple. Individual contribution of employees (including managers and leaders) in the workplace is very much…See More

Paul Meshanko replied to Stephen J. Gill's discussion Temporary Employees
"The shift toward temporary workers is very much an anathema to EE because it erodes trust, perceived [employee] financial stability and almost every aspect of emploee "wellness". Check out The Disposable Worker in Bloomberg's Business…"

A Wake-up Call to American Business Leaders



Author's note:

More than 20 years ago, I was introduced to a game called “Win as Much as You Can” as a part of a teambuilding workshop integrated into AlliedSignal’s TQM initiative. It’s very apparent to me that today’s crop of corporate leaders either never took part in this early-day demonstration of sustainability or they forgot the key take-away…that winning at the expense of others is really losing in the…

Hi Abhishek,
Thanks so much for making me feel welcomed! I'll gradually reach out to different member to learn more about what they do in the [growing] sphere of EE practiioners. In fact, I'll circle back and read up on your profile as soon as I get a proposal off of my desk this morning.

All the best,
Paul
