Engagement is a magic word in business. You want employees who are engaged with you, not just showing up every day and working for a paycheck, but understanding and working with you toward your goals. You want customers who are equally engaged, which helps you to maximize the value of each customer relationship – and you must engage with prospects in order to turn them into customers in the first place. Finally, you want suppliers who are true partners, not just people/companies who sell you things. So how does this happen? Better communication, maybe involving a different approach to communication. It’s all here in the Rules of Engagement for the modern marketplace.
