"Les, I agree that followership is an integral part of leadership, and I suppose management is charged with cultivating the former and developing the latter. But if we are to use a disease as analogy then disengagement is the disease, the symptoms…"
"Thank you for the comment David. I do believe I have ideals but what separates me from the idealists that I have a plan (not to say it will well received or lucrative). I think one of the problems with our effort is that A.) our audience is too…"

Great to see you involved in some conversations. I am relatively new to the network as well and I have found a ton of great resources. The sheer volume can be a tad overwhelming, but I do hope you will make yourself at home here and go exploring. I love the resources I have found. Have you had a chance to check out James Robbins new book, Nine Minutes on Monday or Jim Taggart's Discovering Your Inner Leader? There is a great eBook that you can download from that blog. I have found both of these as very useful and through provoking. There is an amazing collection of videos that continues growing daily. If you haven't seen them already you might really enjoy the video titled The 'X' Model of Employee Engagement or Delivering Happiness. I also have found many of the book reviews from Robert Morris helpful and full of great information. I would encourgage you to join some of the groups on here and continue engaging in thought-provoking conversations.
In my opinion the best gift from this Network is the opportunity to connect with people I may not have otherwise met. I have discovered many talented people and this networking has fostered great ideas. Engaging with others on a common journey reminds me I am not alone.
I can't wait to read your contributions and learn from you. Please let me know if there is anything I can help with.

They want to work wherever they can work. They want a ton of freedom. They want to change jobs every six months, so we’re very aggressive about pushing people around to different jobs. They care less about money and more about learning. We want there to be a certain percentage of the company that moves every three months between departments and does new jobs. One of the things I track is what percentage of the company changed jobs in the last three months. If that’s flattening out, I get worried because I know these Gen Y’ers will leave if they’re not moving around.
