Actively Engaged vs. Actively Dis-engaged? Actively engaged employees, according to a Gallop poll, only make up 50% of the American workforce.  What are the other 50% doing?  They are the passively dis-engaged.  Your employees are there, sitting upright at their desks, but are they really present for their organization? Or, just going through the motions?

With Great Power

Spiderman’s Uncle Ben had it right.  With great power does come great responsibility. The responsibility to be humble, and to experience humility as a leader.  The responsibility to be able to act with integrity, both in public decision making, and in your actions off stage.
