The Complete Story About "The Wilsons”…Available—Free of Charge—On This Page!!

Otherwise Engaged Cover

We’ll let you in on a little secret.  Otherwise Engaged--a book about how to achieve higher levels of engagement by keeping employees from dis-engaging--is actually two books in one.

Half of the book is written in a more traditional business-book style.  It contains important insights and advice about how to be more effective in creating higher levels of engagement throughout your organization. 

The other half is written as a story—a highly entertaining and effective way of facing up to some of the actual challenges and pitfalls you might be facing on the job as you try to get a firmer grip on employee engagement and the other key intangibles such as trust, respect, empowerment, and values.

More specifically, it’s a story about the Wilson Family:  Matt and Jennifer, and their two kids Skipper and Jess.  Matt is a high-powered management consultant.  He’s also a bit of a knucklehead, who has a penchant for apply management consulting techniques inside his household.  (Do you know anyone else who runs an annual F-MOS—a Family Member Opinion Survey?)
