Engagement is largely an intrinsic issue that cannot be solved with extrinsic tools. Virtue encourages prosocial behavior, which strengthens engagement and teamwork. While compliance with a set of rules is designed for a fixed world, virtue unites teams to navigate a rapidly changing world.</p> </div><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-audio-available"> <div class="field-label">Has Audio?

Even those who are at the top of their game might still find themselves out of a job, despite their many achievements. The pervasive feeling in the workplace seems to be that no one is indispensable. But that is not necessarily the case. Being indispensable is a process, not a condition, and it is determined by personal choice. Individuals can become indispensable at work and in their personal lives through how they think and what they do.</p> </div><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-audio-available"> <div class="field-label">Has Audio?

Without this shift, the best of plans will likely go astray. In <strong>The Little Black Book of Change</strong>, Adams and Straw outline seven necessary shifts in context that will enable any organization to produce lasting and effective change.</p> </div><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-audio-available"> <div class="field-label">Has Audio?

By polishing skills related to communication, you can learn to shine while leading meetings, giving presentations, managing change, or building relationships with others. Improving communication skills takes practice and effort, but it pays off.
