I Don’t Mean to Be Offensive, But Your Employee Engagement Sucks

I went to a Neil Diamond concert last week, excited to hear the legend. I expected to sing along to some songs, but I didn’t expect to be recruited to be a Neil fan – I thought I already was. But Neil knows better. He knows that his job at each and every concert is to engage his fans.

Feedback Advice from a "Jersey Boy"

Feedback Advice from a "Jersey Boy" | Performance Project | Scoop.it

January 3rd, I had the opportunity to spend a delightful, informative almost 90 minutes talking to Daniel Robert Sullivan.

So simple, so powerful.
