The great philosopher William James said, compared with what we ought to be, we are only half awake. That was in 1907.

What is America’s Employee Engagement Problem?

If leaders are saying: bad economy, the system’s broken, we’re doomed, nothing but problems, team members are thinking the same thing, if not worse. If leaders are silent then team members make it up.
