1st Law of Engagement

Published: 18th March, 2019

Sharing your Useful Truths

There are different forms and related measures of engagement, unfortunately mostly vague percentages, but for us there’s the one flavour we’re interested in which you can best translate into productivity: the Business Thinking Minute (BTM). Created when you’ve given your people the chance to connect the knowledge they have to tell their own story using a straightforward language where they feel safe to express themselves. They have taken that chance to share a useful truth about the business and so a BTM is created!

1st Law of Engagement

A Business Thinking Minute (BTM) is time sharing a useful truth about the business.

The 1st Law of Engagement states the Business Thinking Minutes (BTM) to the Power of the number of People engaged (∑Smiley) all divided by the Available Minutes (AM) will determine your Engagement Coefficient (ε).

Increasing your Engagement Coefficient

By using your time most effectively and thus increasing your ratio of Business Thinking Minutes (BTMs) in relation to the Available Minutes (AMs) you have. Go nuts by increasing the number of People engaged in the sharing of useful truths about the business. This is a Power relationship so your Engagement Coefficient will rocket!

Your Engagement Coefficient provides the basis of a productive individual and team within a successful business. This is defined as the 2nd Law of Engagement.

Creating your Business Thinking Minutes (BTMs)

By creating the best possible environment where your people feel safe to express themselves. Count a Business Thinking Minute (BTM) where they have taken the chance to connect the knowledge they have to tell their own story using a straightforward language. They have taken that chance to share a useful truth about the business and so a BTM is created!

Increasing your Power to the Number of People Engaged

The more people you can include the better! However remember a BTM only counts when it’s a USEFUL truth so think carefully about the circumstances and environment as and when you grow the number of People Engaged. Done carefully you increase your Power relationships. Done badly, without due care and attention, you go to the effort of increasing the group and taking them away from the day job yet this doesn’t result in anything USEFUL!

Your Available Minutes (AMs)

The minutes on the clock! Time is precious.
