Businesses frequently believe that, to create higher-performing workplaces, employees must:

  • be more committed and dedicated to the cause;
  • stay later and come in earlier, and
  • make more of an effort—that is, “try harder.”

But this doesn’t make sense!

Consider this in the context of running a marathon.

Effort certainly helps when you need to push through the pain—particularly that “wall” so many marathoners experience mid-race.

But it’s not sheer determination or commitment that helps you win the race or perform your absolute best.

Wherever you see high performance, you will see the efficient management of energy.

  • gives practical tips to approach employee engagement a whole new way: by managing energy.
