How to Have More Great Days at Work

©2012 Christopher Rice

Christopher Rice is the President and CEO of global consulting firm BlessingWhite, which helps create high-performance cultures that drive results and reinforce organizational values. Chris has been recognized in each of the last two years as a “Top 100” thought leader by Leadership Excellence.

In the first part of the two-part interview, Jesse and Chris focus on employee engagement, but listeners will find that many of the same principles can apply beyond employees to other people you lead or influence — for example, parents engaging their kids, and thought leaders engaging their followers.
