“Given the extensive research and suggested practices related to helping workers actualize their passion, meaning at work, discretionary effort and connecting purpose to organizational goals, why do workplaces continue to struggle with motivating and engaging each other?” Author Vincent Miholic, Ph.D. asks and provides the answers as shares the ways of “Bridging Engagement Gaps” (published by iUniverse) in his new book.
This book is grounded on the central argument that engagement, foremost, is a result of valuing others, helping others identifying the talent and gifts they bring to work, helping them feel and know that they make a difference is central to motivation and engagement. It then goes on in finding those aspects that cement personal value in the context of organizational values and means of valuing others. With an eclectic blend of business research and analysis, philosophy and the arts, as well as practical examples and illustrations, this book brings forward the foundational constructs related to realizing optimal worker engagement.
Front-line engagement and recognition initiatives, this book believes, include conversations about obstacles and impediments which complicate bringing out the best in people. The decisions workers, particularly leaders, make when beset by dire circumstances are what brings meaning and purpose to life and work.
“The book explores the behaviors and actions that contribute to promoting optimal profit or service and examines the complex relationships that are directly tied to the generative and intrinsic patterns that create energy and satisfying fun, flow, passion and joy in work,” Miholic says.
