As an employee, do you expect your boss to engage you? As a boss or leader, is it only your responsibility to engage your employees? Timothy R. Clark in his book “The Employee Engagement Mindset” has this to say :
"More than anything else, employee engagement comes down to individual responsibility—something that is shockingly absent in the study and practice of employee engagement.
There’s no justification for an employee to wait expectantly for the organization to furnish engagement, as if it’s something somebody can give you. You, the individual employee, are ultimately and unalterably the architect of your own engagement. You own it and nobody owes it to you. Engagement is not an entitlement. Nor is it a right. It’s a privilege reserved for those who apply the six drivers. It’s a choice."
This is a summary of "Six Drivers of Highly Engaged Employees" by Timothy R. Clark. Read the book for further details.
