Dear readers: This article was submitted to Open by a guest blogger, IC Yoda. While he may or may not have an interest in the promotion of Star Wars, we have decided to share his article in its original, unedited form, as he actually makes some great points on employee engagement. We hope you find it as insightful and enjoyable as we did.

To answer power with power, the Employee way this is not. In business, a danger there is, of losing who we are.


To be the Employee is to face the truth and choose. Give off light, or darkness. Be a candle, or the night.

May the Engagement be with you.
