    [Personal] Blog>> Is a Happy Worker a Productive Worker?
    The emotional and conscientious connection which a worker makes with his or her work can only really be enabled when that person is properly intellectually engaged (which then enables mental, emotional, sensory and physical engagement) – something which takes a combination of interventions.

    Studies of work situations show that the reluctance to speak up is not a function of a person’s personality, courage, or professional discipline. Following is the description of a workshop I originally designed for the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA). I delivered the workshop over ten times to DIA top management teams as well as to teams of analysts. I am now making the workshop available to other organizations.

The most important lesson I learned was, “ If you’ve met one autistic person, you’ve met one autistic person.

    What’s important to understand here that segmenting is not the same as personalization. The essence of personalization is in drafting your email copy according to segmentation parameters.

Email unsubscribe is one of the most dreadful things for any email marketer.
