Organizations are always looking to get the best out of employees but the traditional means of doing so may be all wrong. Mark Royal and Tom Agnew, authors of the book, Enemy of Engagement, think that strong and forward-looking managers enable their employees to channel their extra or discretionary efforts productively. They talk about how to feed your teamâ€™s desire to feel accomplished, create better support levels, and combat the common causes that lead to lack of employee engagement.
Mark Royal and Tom Agnew are leaders at the Hayes Groups, Employee Research Division. Mark holds a Ph. D. and MA degrees in sociology from Stanford University, and Tom received his Ph. D. in management from Vanderbilt University and MBA from the University of Saskatchewan.
