Saw the new Star Trek movie and really enjoyed it. I couldn’t help but wonder at the Gen Y vibe permeating it – basically, James Kirk by virtue of being bright and having bravado becomes Captain of the Enterprise after, oh, about an hour’s experience. Of course it’s just a movie, but it was something that struck me about Gen Y and their workplace expectations…
I sent off my chapter for the new Gower Handbook of Employee Communications at long last. I was fortunate enough to get the chapter on employee engagement.
It was interesting to take a step back and observe that, compared to the previous version, my focus was really less about tools and techniques — the tactics of engagement, which are pretty well documented both within the book and via about a million websites — and was more about getting the homework and strategy done.
A recurring theme? Or, if you think like a hammer, everything looks like a nail? You be the judge.
