The 7 Facets of Employee Engagement


I'm a subject matter expert on the topic of workplace bullying, and that means being an expert in everything opposite of workplace bullying. I eradicate workplace bullying for my clients by helping them replace bullying with a positive workplace culture and engaged employees. When employees are engaged, when you have a positive workplace, then you do not have workplace bullying.

Taking a Relationship Pulse Check


Forgetting to water a plant is a common occurrence in my house.  I do try to pay attention, but the results are not pretty… plants very quickly (well it feels quickly to me) start to droop, wilt and then the petals drop off.  This is not a good place to be.

As I am discarding the old plant there is always a good reason (aka excuse) for the neglect…

"I was on holiday"

"I didn't realize you have to water cacti" (you do)

"I was busy and just didn't see the plant wilting"

“I thought you were taking care of it”

In my work with leaders and companies I find the same situation happens at work. We forget to pay attention to the important things, like cultivating effective relationships with our colleagues and our workplace connections will wilt. While this may not be reflected in fallen petals it does become apparent in missed deadlines, tense meetings and interactions, or not being available when needed. Ultimately performance suffers, for us and for them.
