Zombies to Zealots – Reawaken the Human Spirit at Work!
Zombies to Zealots: Reawaken the Human Spirit at Work! is a clarion call to re-instill vitality at work. The book was designed to guide readers to reawaken, remember, reconnect and re-humanize their workplace. It is intended as an invitation to personal and team transformation for those with jammed up grey matter and short attention spans. The insights are served up in a way that connects not only with people’s BRAINS, but with their hearts and souls. It is designed to have the reader reflect and play… releasing the notion of struggle - - to stop taking themselves and others so doggone seriously - - and learn to play a bigger game.
80 percent of the global workforce (70% in the US) have identified themselves as disengaged in their workplaces, according to Gallup’s 2015 Workforce study and other recent reports. That’s approximately 109 million US workers who report they are not happy. With over $387B spent on leadership development every year, the question is clear: “What’s missing in the equation between how we currently develop our leaders and the fact that we have a largely disengaged workforce?”
Mitsch examines what it is that keeps professionals disengaged at work, and how best to rectify this state of discontentment through self-discovery and taking responsibility for one’s own path to fulfillment. Zombies to Zealots provides exercises, stories and paths for bringing professionals back to life in ways that they are craving in their current state of disengagement in the workplace. Whatever the reason people become zombies and disengage at work, one of the things that I’ve seen is that people appear frozen in place, many stop short of really determining what their purpose is on this planet. This book was written because it’s time for people to come back to life, and provides the path to take them to that place.
