Engagement and The Boss – a Haiku

I was reading Dan Rockwell’s twitter feed, looking for some ideas to help frame up our new revision of the Seven Seas Quest team building game and thought to reframe one of his quotes about leadership and innovation.

Our new revision and repackaging will capture the theme of saving the world, reframing it to be about “saving the workplace” and focusing on collaboration as it relates to active involvement in workplace improvement. We want to “save” those unengaged and uninvolved employees and impact their sense of active engagement and ownership involvement in implementing performance improvements.

Anyway, Dan gave me the idea for this Business Haiku on people and performance.

(Note that BOSS spelled backwards tends to be self-explanatory, as in, “I’m the BOSS here” and “Yes, you certainly are…”)

ALL of us need to be continually aware that knowing the answer is a real block on discovering new opportunities for improvement and the active involvement and engagement of our people.
