    Smart piece. More managers must realize that the ball is in their court when it comes to engagement. Regular feedback and clear expectations are all it takes to build a fully engaged, effective, workforce.

    It’s interesting language used in the “clear path to engage them”. It seems to abrogate all self responsibility and pass complete control over one’s career to management.

    e.g. “Tell me where I’m going in my career” implies that the manager is totally responsible for the person’s career, rather than a partner in one section of it. ‘My Career’ implies that I have responsibility for it, yet “tell me where I’m going” suggest the opposite doesn’t it?
