Jon, good as always. You inspired me to finally write a post that I have been meaning to do for awhile. It deals with a related but different issue of how resources are allocated within organizations -- call it a more efficient internal labor market to enable change. Keep up the good thoughts!

Terrific post, Jon. I have a question that I regularly ask my clients and seminar participants: Do you give your employees the freedom to try... FAIL... and hopefully succeed? 9 times out of 10 I get the response of open-mouthed, glassy-eyed stares. Give employees that kind of TRUST? Engagement to most employers means servitude in a robotic, not organic sense.

Ted - thank you!

Michele, WOW, what a great question! Huh, I bet the 1 out of 10 that says yes have some great stories... hmmm... great fodder for a post? Can you share some of the great answers you've gotten?


What a great great post. And imagine that people lose their jobs after years of "service" and the boss is telling them - "don't take this personal, but we had a look at your role and we decided that it is the best for all of us blablabla." It happens all the time - and companies still wonder why employees are not engaged, customers are not loyal which is related), and employees "sabotage" companies from time to time??

Great post - really. Keep it up.


Great post. Likely it is the same 'mantra' of "It's business not personal' that will cause most companies to NOT allow employees to Blog.
