In business, a strategy is only as good as its execution. Without the full engagement of the entire workforce, a business leader is like a general without an army. In The Art of Engagement, Jim Haudan, president and CEO of boutique consultancy Root Learning, delivers an innovative approach to engaging employees in strategy.
He arms you with an arsenal of visual learning tools, including “learning maps,” illustrations, sketches, and story boards, which allow your workers to see what they never could before: their place in the organization and their unique contribution to the company's success.
