Welcome to Week 1! In the first week we will share data altering us to gain a deeper understanding of how to reimagine and reignite engagement both in our work and personal lives. The objective is to help you understand this need and equip you with an easy to use framework that can be used to help yourself as well as others (colleagues, coworkers/subordinates) take specific steps to increase engagement. This framework will prepare you to go in the direction that you need to, based on your personal and our professional assessment.

Welcome to Week 4! The plan for this week is to understand the third lever of our three lever framework for increasing engagement: "Comparisons". You will gain a refined understanding of how social comparisons help us make sense of our world. Moreover, you will learn how the comparisons that we make regarding what we are doing versus what we are getting can become misaligned. Finally, how the comparisons we make between that ratio and the ratio for others fundamentally drives our feelings, thoughts and action.
