D.FINED Engagement BookCast - With Devin Halliday, author of BELONGING FACTOR


Devin and I discuss a little bit about Chapter 6 in Devin's book, BELONGING FACTOR: How Great Brands and Great Leaders Inspire Loyalty, Build Community, and Grow Profits. At first they have a good exchange about "great leaders." I am skeptical of that description and Devin explains why he included it in his book's title. 
Chapter 6, which is titled "A Case for Belonging in the Workplace," includes a real-world story of a steel company top executive that evolved from "walking the shop" to "talking the shop." This practice made a profound difference in his leadership and in the tenor and engagement of his people.
You can access Devin in a number of ways and he would very much welcome your questions, inquiries, and helping you in any way he can. He's good people! Find his contact info underneath the the video on its YouTube page.

BELONGING FACTOR, CHAPTER 5 - With Author Devin Halliday

 This week's episode of the D.FINED Engagement Bookcast touches on Chapter 5 of BELONGING FACTOR: How Great Brands and Great Leaders Inspire Loyalty, Build Community, and Grow Profits. I talk with author Devin Halliday about the five characteristics of the Belonging Factor and we touch on the necessity for everyone in an organization to work each day to align what they do with the values that have been decided on. Organizational values are the things that people live and breathe as it relates to their work, their co-workers, their leaders and their customers. You will gain a bunch of wisdom and guidance about this from Devin and his book. Devin would very much like to hear from you. Here's his LinkedIn profile:
