70% of American Employees Are Disengaged in the Workplace–Gallup Report
What is the culture and spirit of your workplace? Are you and your co-workers excited, inspired and feeling the deep satisfaction of contributing to the success of your organization?
According to the recent Gallup Report, The State of the American Workplace, 70% of America’s 100 million workers are disengaged at work. Nearly one-fifth of those people were so disengaged at the office that they were actively undermining their co-workers’ work. “These employees, who have bosses from hell that make them miserable, roam the halls spreading discontent. The other 50 million (50%) American workers are not engaged. They’re just kind of present, but not inspired by their work or their managers. Having too few engaged employees means our workplaces are less safe, employees have more quality defects, and disengagement — which results from terrible managers — is driving up the country’s healthcare costs,” states Gallup’s Chairman and CEO, Jim Clifton.
This book is about rebuilding relationships in the workplace by honoring the spirit in ourselves and in others, residing beneath our self-created identities, battling and competing for power and validation. This shallow interpretation of ourselves, a shabby imitation we have come to believe is true, belies our incredible authentic power. One day, when fear can be replaced with trust and compassion for one another, there will be a shift in consciousness. People everywhere will be restored to their true identities, their inner spiritual greatness.

Today’s workplace is often permeated with a web of egos battling and competing for power and validation, managers who dis-empower employees, and co-workers who hurt and sabotage one another. It can be fraught with internal competition, pain, gossip, worry, stress, insecurity and most insidious of all, a fear underriding the relationships within the organization. How can teamwork and cooperation occur in an environment like this?

“A few years ago, I asked Danna if she could speak at my hospital Grand Rounds. Due to their strong personalities, addressing healthcare professionals and physicians can be a challenge. Danna delivered an important message that transcended any rank or authority that existed in the room. She gave us all equal footing and empowered the participants to be their best self at work. Egos aside, we all have a common goal of delivering quality care to our patients. Danna helped us to see through minutia to what really matters most. I highly recommend her to any organization that wants to improve workplace cohesiveness.”
–Julie Adams RN MSN PHN, Director of Utilization Review, Case Management & Social Services, St Rose Hospital, Hayward CA
