Why you rarely hear CEOs talk about employee engagement

Why you rarely hear CEOs talk about employee engagement | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
If find it interesting that there is so much buzz in HR circles about the topic of employee engagement. We have employee engagement surveys, employee engagement workshops, papers and books written on employee engagement and entire conferences with a focus on employee engagement.I think most people would agree with the assumption that more engaged employees deliver better results. Maybe it’s just me, but the more I care about something and see value in my effort, the harder I am willing to work.
Ron McIntyre's insight:

Bill is on the right track here. There are usually missed expectations on both sides of the engagement discussion. The issue then becomes one of agreeing to and meeting those expectations. It does require commitment and authenticity on both sides.  In business there MUST be RESULTS for anything to succeed but this need cannot destroy the relationships within.  Your thoughts?
