~ Herb Kelleher

Engaged employees are not just committed. They are not just passionate or proud. They have a line-of-sight on their own future and on the organization's mission and goals. They are "enthused" and "in gear" using their talents and discretionary effort to make a difference in their employer's quest for sustainable business success.
~ Closing the Engagement Gap
