You can listen to my interview of Stephen about his book here. You can read my review of his book here.
As he heard of my plans to write a book on Employee Engagement, he offered to write a chapter. It's titled Stephen's Story. In it he shares his personal journey towards recognizing the power of employee recognition and a simple two-step plan to make it a fixed part of his day. Every day.
I'll read Stephen's Story and let you hear the power of a simple approach to employee recognition.
Why are so many people talking about Employee Engagement? We'll find out a few tips on the effectiveness of employee recognition and how it can potentially provide financial success to your company. Zane Safrit, CEO, Business Consultant, and Author will share some of his experiences and lessons learned on building employees awareness of company goals, raising morale, and increasing productivity.
Zane Safri has spent his career in call center operations, many of them serving international customers and sales forces. From an entry level position as a customer service rep to team leader to Assistant Director and Country Manager to finally CEO he saw the language of employee recognition and employee engagement is a univeral language and so are the forms of its ROI. As Country Manager, he opened his company's first overseas office in Seusseldorf, Germany and used employee recognition and engagement to double sales and triple the number of new orders within the first six months. As CEO of a small conference call service provider he rebudgeted the company's advertising and marketing budgets towards employees and customers. This resulted in revenue growth of 80% while retail prices were pushed lower by over 70%, all the time generating positive cash-flows, the lifeblood of small business. In his book Recognize THEM: 52 Ways to Recognize Your Employees In Way They Value he has compiled many of the ways he used to recognize and engage employees, many of them require no financial inventment, research and data to show the positive impact on a company's performance and inspiring quotes from business leaders on the value of employee recognition.

#TChat Radio is all new on Tuesday, January 15, 2013, at 7:30 pm ET (4:30 pm PT). When you recognize your employees and show thanks to them, do you fake it? Maybe or probably not, but does it seem like you do, to them? That’s a conundrum, how organizations can project genuine gratitude and authentic recognition. We’re not saying you don’t mean it, but your employees need to know you mean it. They gotta feel it, too. This week we look at these dynamics, including technology’s proper role, and along the way, we take a stab at solving a couple related, chicken-and-egg riddles.This week’s #TChat Radio and Twitter #TChat will help to answer these questions and give us all hope for a better employee recognition outlook.

Money & Name Recognition, no matter how bad the name, Buys the Presidency Once again: are you going to stand for it or just sit down and let it happen. I always think of a better way to do things. It works, but i seldom to never get any takers. Is this because my ideas are bad, too hard, too honest? My ideas are real, cost efficient, honest as the mass of our Sun. The problem which i face is the problem of stucknes. Stuckness is a word meaning: 1.) 'we have been doing this for years' - WE HAVE 2 POLITICAL PARTIES WHICH GOVERNN OUR COUNTRY FOR BETTER OR WORSE; 2.) 'now is not the time for change, we are in the middle of something' - THE AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE ACT IS WORKING FOR 30,000 Americans - - not 100,000 or 400,000; 3,) 'we are doing good' - OUR UNENPLOYMENT IS DOWN TO 4.9% - -WE DON'T COUNT EVERYONE WHO IS UN-EMPLOYED, JUST THOSE Americans WHO STILL CAN FILE FOR UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE; 5.) 'what is your pro-fession, how much experience do you have, do you have a degree, where did you go to school, how long have you been working' - I AM UNEMPLOYED, I HAVE A BS & MBA WITH 30+ CREDITS IN ACCOUNTING with TAXATION, I GRAD-UATED FROM ST. FRANCIS COLLEGE - - not big enough for you, never heard of it, does it help that I was drafted during college and did my active duty doing college in less than 4 years.. My idea for a political free White House is exquisite and affordable. It reminds me of new nation finding its way. Can you find your way away from 2 Political Parties separating us from each other, setting up walls between us, tearing our nation apart. Are we Democrats over being Americans. Can Americans find true honest candidates resembling the people.
I believe that we need a person who represents most of us in every detail: height, weight, honesty, expectation and standing for the right thing…. bwell c2it

About the book:
Redeeming Waters is a story about a mega gospel recording artist named King d.Avid who meets Brianna. Their paths cross again years later and you see them both dealing with some things during that time. As with all of us, we make decisions not realizing how deep the consequences of those actions may take us. This story shows how one decision can begin to snowball into something that’s hard to stop as it gains an avalanche of momentum. People will also learn things when it comes to the biblical telling of David and Bathsheba.

Each time we air our goal is to promote interest in the creative arts community. The focus is to allow artists in the community get their recognition. We know that radio has been for years at the forefront of communication and no matter how technology will send us in different directions, radio is here to stay. Almost everyone has something to say and what better opportunity to say it then to bring it straight to radio and then to the world.
Aj-Poet a native of Westchester County in White Plains, NY to be exact is jumping in head first to share her family of performers, artist, writers with the community. She hoping not only to reach individuals in the surrounding area but to launch a movement to preserve the beauty of the arts. She especially want that person who we call the "closeted" artist to come out and shine. No longer will we sing only in our bathroom or paint behind closed doors. What is freeing with radio is that these talents can be communicated behind a microphone exposing many to what we are afraid to show. However once revealed a star is born.
Aj-Poet will be interviewing, playing music, sharing taped and live interviews. Discussing what folks are doing out there and also promoting their crafts. From authors who are reachable in our communities to dancers and musicians about to do a show. She will have entrepreneurs, supporters, activists, politicians, community leaders and active participants in our communities.
