    Dr Rob, You have knocked it out the park with this weeks vlog! Engagement is so important and one of the leadership areas I am working to improve on.

      Thanks Jason,
      I find this research so interesting and life change. HBR Blog posted a new resource today “How to Have Difficult Conversations When You Don’t Like Conflict.” One of their very first points: Don’t worry about Likability! People who do that spend all of their time rewording their thoughts in their head, instead of listening respectfully and being curious! <--Those are the two things that will help most in difficult conversations. Keep growing!

    This is so thought provoking and yet so practical. It brings a lot of clarity when working with a team there must be a balance of engagement based on results with people who have a natural tendency to focus on effort.

    Very well done!

      Stacey, You bring out an important point. I’m GUILTY too often of “making it happen” on the program/event level, forgetting to build a good alliance first. At the very least I need to communicate the pertinent info to those affected. Thanks for the good reminder!
