The Three-Legged Stool
Employee Engagement = Higher Profits
by Dana Couillard


Low employee engagement is a corporate epidemic. It lives virtually undiscovered on production floors, in office hallways, and in senior leadership offices. It drives up costs, reduces productivity, and robs companies of their hard-earned profits while hiding in plain sight.

The Three-Legged Stool is a simple, how-to-guide to track and improve low employee engagement. Award-winning author and business consultant Dana Couillard uses stories, interviews, and research to reveal new insights into this often ignored problem.

• Learn how to identify and manage low employee engagement

• Harness the power of your employees’ psychological needs for purpose,

control, competence, and connection.

• Build an easy-to-use Employee Engagement Plan complete with your own

unique purpose statement using the step-by-step guide.

The Three-Legged Stool is a powerful new tool that will reverse the negative impacts caused by low employee engagement and the frustration that wreaks havoc on morale and profitability in the private, public, and non-profit sectors.

The Three-Legged Stool is a business leader’s roadmap to enhanced employee wellness, improved productivity, and increased profitability.

“Couillard’s taste for dramatic language keeps the text from becoming a dry read as it delves into the facets of employee performance ... The information is presented effectively and with clarity, and Couillard writes with the tone of an enthusiastic mentor. An easy-to-follow introduction to motivating employees and maximizing performance.”
