"A simple yet revolutionary concept...it’s impossible to fully separate life from work."
Engagement is a multifactorial dynamic that should be considered both in ourselves as well as within management. Very few people lose their jobs because of lack of skills or education, the cause is usually related to deficiencies in behaviors—the intangibles—that are not consistent with the company's culture.
Understanding your personal intrinsic motivators acts as a personal compass to locate and maintain the ideal job that enhances and leverages your skills, interests, and talents. It is an important step in order to reach high levels of engagement as an employee.
"It seems obvious that an honest and searching awareness of who we are can serve as an indispensable inner compass."
The seven recognized intrinsic motivators are:
The aim as an employee is to position yourself in a job where your some of these intrinsic motivators are satisfied.
Engagement is not a static thing, it’s a revolving process and at least 50% of engagement lies within ourselves.
"If you don't have these strengths to differentiate yourself from the next job applicant, it's time to work on them. Some will come easily to you; some will require purposeful, intentional changes to your default way of reacting to circumstances."
Having a job is not simply turning up for work and doing your job well.
Other qualities that are highly desirable to any manager will help differentiate you from others and allow you to grow up the corporate ladder.
Even if you are just starting in a low position, take a managerial role in your job and see that things are done as they are supposed to be done, hold people to account, even your superiors.
Managing your boss well is a particular trait that will always work in your favor.
Understand their communication preferences, anticipate their needs, prepare them for the unexpected, and don’t bother them with the small stuff.
Learn time management well and always work towards efficiency and high quality.
Great employees manage their time well, have daily action plans, and don’t procrastinate especially on group projects.
Engaged employees go beyond the mediocre, they go beyond the expected and have a highly driven expectation of the company’s goals and how their own efforts fit into the bigger picture.
A great employee takes responsibility for problem-solving, they have a can-do attitude and only approach management with problems after they have spent time coming up with potential solutions.
They don’t complain and remain accountable for their mistakes.
Cultivating strong relationships across the company’s departments is one of the most important traits to develop.
It does not mean introverts will not rate; this is more about understanding what your co-workers want and working in a collaborative and productive way to achieve that.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
