ROLE ENGAGEMENT REFLECTION

This is an opportunity to think through four specific areas of engagement related to your role.. On a separate sheet, take some significant time to pause, ponder and record your answers in various areas below. And then, let’s meet to talk through what your sense of engagement in your role.

The issue of engagement is a challenge in almost every enterprise these days.  This tool is a way of assessing the sense of engagement on the part of anyone serving on the front line.  We want to insure a good level of "get to's" . . . a reasonable perspective on "have to's" and "need to's" . . . and a valuing and promoting of "want to's."
