Future – Engage – Deliver



If you only read one article on Engage, make it The Necessary Art of Persuasion by Jay Conger, Harvard Business Review, May/June 1998. You’ll see a good overview of Emotional Intelligence in What Makes a Leader by Daniel Goleman, Harvard Business Review Nov/Dec 1988. And emphasising the importance of relationships is What Effective General Managers Really Do by John Kotter, Harvard Business Review Mar/Apr 1999. All three articles are available at www.hbr.org

Other articles are A leadership style that switches on engagement can make staff radiate productivity by Beverly Alimo-Metcalfe and Margaret Bradley, People Management Jan 2008 and Get 'engaged' by Emma De Vita in Management Today April 2007.


My recommendations have to start with a recent book from my friend and colleague, David Macleod. With Chris Brady, he's written The Extra Mile, How to Engage Your People to Win.
