Employee Engagement - The Doctor is IN...

by Tommy Taylor
February 7, 2012

Well hello out there in radio and blog land!  It’s time to tune in to The Love Doctor, hosted by your favorite management and relationship counselor: Dr. Love. Yes, that’s right … it’s my favorite month.  February.  Love is in the air, as we’re mere hours away from the most passionate and steamiest of holidays … Valentine’s Day.  In the spirit of St. Valentine’s Day, I want to give all of you an opportunity to spread the love. So, I want you to send me your questions about Employee Engagement. What do I mean by Employee Engagement? Well, here are some old samples from The Love Doctor vault to give you an idea. One listener asked:

“Dear Doctor Love,  It’s been a tough year for my organization. Our bottom line has taken a big hit.  Money’s tight, but I want to find a meaningful way to re-engage my employees. Any advice?”

Another reader wrote:

“Doctor Love,  I have to ask: why should I even care about employee engagement in the first place? They call it WORK for a reason!”

And one last example:

“Doctor, Do I have to ask permission of each and every one of my employees’ fathers before engaging them?”

Hopefully you get the point now. So, send those questions in. On Valentine’s Day, I’ll do my best to answer each and every one of those questions on the air.  Click on the link you see below to hear a special message from the Doctor OR to submit your questions. I can’t wait to see what you’ve got in store for me!  Until next week, this has been Dr. Love! Good night everybody!
