About the Summary

Employees can often lose their way amidst change. Various factors contribute to employees unplugging: experiencing change as loss, repetitive change leading to fatigue and/or apathy, becoming overwhelmed because of additional work, low work satisfaction, and feeling poorly led. Unplugged provides a fresh look at engagement as a choice that employees make based on how they perceive the change they are faced with and how much discretionary energy they will give to the endeavor. Leaders also need to understand what to do.

In This Summary You’ll Learn:

  • Five key lessons for why organizations become unplugged.
  • The importance of essence-based leadership for reengagement.
  • To help employees perceive opportunity and build personal accountability.
  • To foster organizational connectedness, inclusion, and validation.
