Indisputable evidence has revealed the greatest threat to America’s economy. Is it off-shoring labor? Unethical corporate practices? A turbulent market that forces downsizing? No. A Gallup Organization survey of more than one million Americans show that nearly 75 percent of all workers are disengaged. Employee disengagement is a widespread malady in American organizations, causing the loss of billions of dollars, hours of dissatisfaction, and work lives lacking true value. In his book, Fired Up or Burned Out, Michael Stallard shares the three key actions necessary to transform even a lethargic, disconnected organization or office into an impassioned, innovative, and thriving workplace.
Michael Lee Stallard describes how to create an environment that helps people and organizations thrive, even during the challenging seasons. He tells inspiring stories about leaders of business, government, the social sector and the world of sports. In addition, Michael draws on research from psychology, neuroscience, mental and physical health research, political sociology and organizational behavior.
