What is included with this book?


Research by the Gallup Organization suggests that fewer than three out of ten Americans are engaged in their jobs. Imagine the wasted human potential! In economic terms, disengaged workers cost our economy $250-$300 billion every year-and that's a conservative estimate. Motivational speeches and incentive programs can produce a short burst of enthusiasm or a spike in productivity. But a flameout almost always follows, then a return to the sorry status quo.
