Six Forms of Engagement now on Ragan.com

Ragan.com, the popular site for communicators of a variety of professional persuasions, has picked up the latest version of my piece on “Six Forms” of employee engagement.

In challenging the notion that employee engagement is a single, all-encompassing, one-size-fits-all measure of employee positivity, proactivity,  anticipated longevity and other associated virtues, the Six Forms of Engagement offer the opportunity to tap into the different ways people engage with their organizations and work to get better outcomes.

The article can be found here, at the Ragan.com site in the USA.

  1. I really enjoyed reading this article; especially the classifications of employees that we would typically dub as disengaged. My takeaway is that you really need a balance of all types of engagement levels and that employees will find themselves at a different end of the engagement spectrum at different times; similarly with the change management curve.

  2. Exactly, Tatiana. And once you know where someone is coming from engagement-wise, it becomes a lot easier to move the needle with that individual than it is to generate a company-wide cheerleading effort that appeals equally to everyone.
