Low employee engagement costs industry $500 billion dollars a year, in the USA alone, according to the Gallup Organization. In Chap.  8, you learn how poor performing leadership teams contribute to low employee engagement and how highly effective leadership teams create an ownership (highly engaging) culture where people thrive. As the most significant environmental influencer in their organization, leadership teams often underestimate how their communication and collaboration inconsistencies influence people in their organization. Learn to identify these inconsistencies and transform them into ownership magnifiers. Let the nine markers of the ownership epidemic serve as milestones to help you create the conditions that enable people to play at their best throughout the organization. Money might buy love, but you cannot buy an ownership culture. In this chapter, learn to create deep levels of ownership in your business that contributes to the overall growth of your business.
