    Agreed. These things will make you look better. You can do these things, of course, for a decade and never get promoted. The best thing is to be born into it. A buddy of mine told me the following story. He goes: "My dad has a friend who's a Supreme court judge. When I was in high school I asked him who was the best lawyer (that he knew)." To which the Judge replied: "The one who know's a Supreme court judge."

    @Ali Anani this is a topic which needs more engagement overall in most aspects of life. To be engaged with the people and the job at work can make an individual very productive and quite happy. This is important because the feeling of happiness should transcend most feelings, as it opens the door to gratitude, acceptance, appreciation and it increases the value of the job. Why does this matter... it should if one desires an environment of loyalty, focus and growth. Harmony. Just some thoughts as I read. Quite a very important post for pondering. Thank you

    #31 Thank you to @Ali Anani for bringing your comment to my attention @Amina Alami. It is great to see the same words being viewed from a different perspective. I find our perspective of the value of newer or older employees, their degree of freshness in relation to their engagement very important. For me it brings up the complexity of the sense of smell experienced from the view of the "ventilation" system of the environment. If newer employees come in with a fresh smell only to be prevented from "blossoming" (referring to Dr. Ali's next buzz The Butterfly Effect of Passion) in a well ventilated environment, they may temporarily engage and will either leave their current environment or become older employees still engaged in spite of losing their fresh smell. They adapted to the environment producing the same low quality smell, rather than either leaving to preserve their freshness or contributing to the environment by breathing fresh air into it. Thank you Dr. Ali and Amina for the opportunity to engage in this dynamic discussion.

    #31 Thank you dear @Amina Alami for writing a profound comment. If you would read the comment of @Sara Jacobovici then she also offered her explanation of same paragraph. Fresh employees may disengage easily. This is a paradox of its own because freshness means to me they are still fragrant and yet they ae the first to disengage. You make me think deeper. Thank you
    Amina Alami
    11/01/2017 #31 Amina Alami
    This article is astounding Ali Anani! You so beautifully stated," this was a refreshing smell of disengagement. What a paradox!" In my humble opinion, the young and fresh employees may disengage easily, even if they smell right, when their company doesn't practice leadership development programs and mentoring to keep them fully engaged. On the other hand, the wrinkled employees, even if they may not smell so right, they could still be fully engaged if they finally found their fulfilling job.

    #21 Yes, the mentoring word is what we speak. Expectations are designed and built by many aspects of our life. We all need that feeling of confidence and in most cases with our next generation that confidence has set up expectations that are unrealistic. I can say this was the case for myself and the many i have discussed employment with at our firm.

    Could we make the statement, expectations developed on poor understanding will always produce poor engagement.

    @Jared Wiese, 🐝 adding VALUE & RESULTS you have interpreted my comments and extended the discussion into new realms. My conspiracy theory might be that we are placing a large portion of our hiring expectation on education. Given this we now assume "soft skills" are present. We judge our newer generations with this in mind.

    I'm not a ridged fan but none the less a fan of Maslow's hierarchy. Soft skills allow us to self actualize through experience. We cant gain experience unless someone engages us and our expectations will never shift. The individual experiencing this will struggle through out their career and many other areas.

    Just a few minutes a day, or changing how we interface with others could increase another's opportunity for success. But in the end each individual has to choose their path. So as you say they need to be released.

    lovely insight sir @Ali Anani! but, i am bit confused, how far an artist bothered about glue, when he is only focused on his creative inclination? will it be sensible to be bothered about glue, instead of being absorbed with his creative frame of mind? besides, i believe, quality lies with his creation, not with mere ostentation with its eye catching form. content is the soul of his creation, not the mere form only. it is equal to the metaphor, that we must judge from one tree to judge about the entire forest and its beauty and attractive quality is the only determining factor to gauge the potentialities of its distinctive dispensation, for which it eventually make sometimes epoch making presentation! however, intriguing post indeed sir. enjoyed read. thank you for the share.

    One of our main tasks is not to build a single charismatic leader with a smell of fragrance,but to build a whole organization around its own fragrance.
    The beauty of the organizations with enduring smell begins when they build internal and external organizational streams that will never dry,going up and down and in all directions causing no wrinkles.

    #12 Harvey, I think I see what you mean - even from a big business perspective ;)
    I have mentored and trained many college grads and new hires. Interesting ties to this discussion.

    Some are there for a paycheck (expectation) while others want to fit in and move up (engagement).
    Some you can tell something once and they not only do it but run with it and expand on it. Others, eventually don't "fit in" and are fired.

    This is why, when I interview people, I put more "glue" on the soft skills: expectations ("So, what's the pay and when do I get YOUR job?!") and attitude ("Ask not what your [company] can do for you";), hunger and thirst, ability and desire to learn and contribute to the team.
    Jared Wiese, 🐝 adding VALUE & RESULTS
    10/01/2017 #20 Jared Wiese, 🐝 adding VALUE & RESULTS
    This resonates so well: "Wrinkles form when the top layer dries faster than the bottom layer or when top layer is applied on a contaminated surface. The top layer in organization is the upper management. If the upper management interest in the organization dries up then the glue that bonds the organization together."
    Great metaphors! I've seen so many upper management come in and - let's say - not adhere well. They are soon gone like the wind, with those who are more engaged and dedicated feeling the breeze.

    10/01/2017 #19 Sara Jacobovici
    Part 2/2 Thank you @Ali Anani for bringing my attention to @Harvey Lloyd's comment and thank you Harvey for the mention. I will take a couple of lines from Dr. Ali's buzz to reflect on expectations and engagement. Dr. Ali writes, "Not all glues are the same [and painting] the "organization wagon" with low quality paint will lead to all sorts of problems..." You both touched on the "fit" or shared vision. If the leader, who is the glue, is best suited for a certain type of surface or purpose and the team members or staff are made up of other "stuff", it will not lead to engagement. The glue has to permeate the surface while it is still wet before it will take hold; it needs time to make itself felt. And the quality of the paint, or the investment in the company, whether time and/or effort, will determine the quality of the environment. Unfortunately, some leaders are "blind" to the impact they have on their environment and its influence on the rest of the people involved. If their focus is away from the results of the poor quality of engagement, they will only experience the outcome when things begin to "fall apart". As always, gentlemen, thank you for the opportunity to engage at this level of quality!
