Everyone deserves to work in an engaging environment! If we are all operating at a higher awareness level, we treat each other differently. That behavior will spread like a pebble thrown in the pond!
Unfortunately, many people dread going to work and feel drained at the end of the day. That leaves very little to give to their family members and their outside interests. Studies have shown that work satisfaction impacts so much of what is important to the employee: happiness, friendships at work, feeling valued and appreciated. When employee’s needs are met retention is longer and production is higher. But when these critical work factors are missing, people often leave their jobs, often to your competition and for less compensation than you would expect. All of which can be remedied with the proper work environment and quality leadership!
“I want people to approach their work with enthusiasm, interest, and passion, not with indifference or dread about going into work.”

She is an expert on what works well, what doesn’t, and why it all matters to your organization. She has a passion for wanting people to feel fulfilled at the end of their workday!
Dana believes that we can create work environments where everyone works well together, there is mutual respect, and the feeling of fulfillment. People work 40-50 years in their lifetimes. They should enjoy it!
Dana’s over 30 years of work experience included great teams, great leaders, average teams, average leaders, and yes – even bad teams, and bad leaders. During the times where the environment was miserable, she began to examine why. What made great experiences so great and the bad ones so bad? Then she began making employee engagement a top priority for her own teams and later for others who want to improve the quality of the work experience.
