There are perhaps as few concepts as important but as misunderstood as engagement: 75% of leaders have no engagement plan or strategy even though 90% say engagement impacts on business success.

It is finally, in this incisive and timely book, that Scott Gould unveils the shape of engagement through seven frameworks, each one giving powerful insight into how to build meaningful relationships with your customers, employees and customers. 

Eight years in the making, and drawing on almost two decades of experience, this book is a must-read for anyone working with engagement.

In this book you will discover:

What makes engaging companies outperform their unengaging counterparts by over 30% increase in stock price year on year.
Why a like on social media is NOT engagement
What the six psychological steps of engagement are, and what strategies to use at each stage.
Why traditional motivation techniques don't work, and what the five things are that truly motivate people.
