Engagement needs emotion (e-motion , energy in motion )

Engagement needs emotion (e-motion, energy in motion).When do you feel most energised to act?When looking at a problem or when looking at an opportunity?

When you feel others are linking to your dream or when you are looked at as a blamer or as a messenger of bad news?Do energize from the positive psychology and do…See More

Thanks so much for your comment! It's wonderful to see just how welcoming everyone is here!! Whereabouts are you in Belgium?
