The Energized Workplace

The Olympics remind me of upbeat and energized workplaces where there’s talent, focus, energy and enthusiasm.  I talk a lot about the need for focus and urgency, because without those, nothing gets done.  Organizations that concentrate on grinding-it-out have focus and urgency but they lack energy and enthusiasm and they burn-out talent.  If you want energy and enthusiasm, you’ll need more and pizza parties and t-shirts only go so far.  The answer varies by organization, but it has little to do with personality profiles or generational differences, and a lot to do with the nature of your workforce.
