Here is more employee engagement advice, and it comes from an unusual source.
I’m getting ready to retire my 2009 pocket calendar for the year; it’s the kind that features quotes each week.
Paging through it I found the following quotes that are applicable to employee engagement:
“Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.” George S. Patton
“Delegating work works, provided the one delegating works, too.” Robert Half
“Setting an example is not the main means of influencing others; it is the only means.” Albert Einstein
“Be nice to people on your way up because you meet them on your way down.” Jimmy Durante.
“We may affirm absolutely that nothing great in the world has been accomplished without passion.” Hegel
