ok

Those are excellent points, Lisa.

Too often leaders and organisations focus on preventing people from doing 'bad' things, instead of motivating them to do 'good' things. That's a great way to end up with demotivated workers and nothing to show for it.

Rob - I agree. I think engagement is all about bringin out positive energy and intiative.

Agreed on all points

Positive energy, initiative, and the NYSE is gaining in value? Oh my gosh, we may be turning the corner...even though the media continues to remind me that the worst is yet to come (financially) and I may die of a pig virus before that day comes.

Excellence can only be measured in how many times you failed before you got it right. If you got it right the first time, don't kid yourself, it's probably not excellent. If it takes you dozens of times to get it "right", you may want to lower the bar on excellence and choose battles you can excel at. If you refined your effort in a series of accomplishments, with a little tarnish, call it excellent and move onto other "stuff".
