    Dwight Willis United States of America Though not titled Employee Engagement, the 'Creating Meaning' course shared some foundational principles that helped me understand how to keep employees engaged in the true goals & values of an organization. As Janice mentioned, the system will break down and have its issues ("failures"), but what leaders do to recover and regain momentum is what really counts. Thanks for the informative course! 2015-02-26 17:02:53
