What Energizes Employees

"What energizes people is the broader horizon, the excitement of new challenges and big opportunities. When their leaders offer this excitement, people come alive."

~ Ram Charan and Noel. M. Tichy

In such companies, individuals bring their best thinking and ideas to the workplace on a daily basis, do what needs to be done without being told, and feel they have a significant impact in their jobs.2
