This week’s five Ahas are from the AhaBook™, Maryann Baumgarten and Lisa Smith on Engagement. Authors Maryann Baumgarten and Lisa Smith know that we all feel engaged when we care and connect to something larger than ourselves. They realize that even though so many of us see work as a time- and energy-sucking culprit, a few shifts in organizational behavior and direction can turn that perspective on its head. Their AhaBook contains 140 actionable pieces of wisdom that employers and senior managers can start using today to make people engaged to their work and workplaces.
