Energize your workforce

first_imgToday’s employees—even those who may be engaged—are exhausted. Depleted of passion, resilience, verve and excitement, they are devoid of the personal energy that compels them to consistently go above and beyond the call of duty.To create a sustainable, innovative and high-performing organizational culture, businesses need to focus on both engagement and energy—essentially, moving “beyond engagement” as we know it today.Brain science provides us with an understanding of how to get there. Here are 10 ways for leaders to change the way they approach engagement—and put energy first.1. Manage energy, not engagement.When we are low on energy, we lose our ability to focus, regulate emotions, make decisions and take action. By managing energy instead of engagement, leaders protect employees’ executive function. This can unlock energy that fuels enthusiasm and innovation—generating sustainable engagement. continue reading » 7SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

How Tyler Lydon fits into the Denver Nuggets’ rotation

first_img Published on June 22, 2017 at 11:02 pm Contact Sam: [email protected] | @Sam4TR Facebook Twitter Google+ Former Syracuse forward Tyler Lydon was picked by the Utah Jazz with the No. 24 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft and then reportedly traded to the Denver Nuggets on Thursday night.Here is the current salary and contract situation for the Nuggets, per Spotrac.com.Lydon, who projects as a stretch four at the NBA level, joins a roster loaded with similar-sized forwards who like to shoot 3-pointers. That includes Darrell Arthur (2.9 3-point attempts per game), Juan Hernangomez (1.8) and third-year stretch four Trey Lyles (2.9), who Denver traded Utah for as a part of its deal to get the No. 24 pick.Kenneth Faried, entering his seventh year with the Nuggets and who is one of the faces of the franchise, starts at power forward when healthy but does not shoot the 3. He’s attempted only 19 such shots in his career. Danilo Gallinari normally plays small forward but also shifts down to power forward and he shoots the most beyond the arc at 5.1 triple attempts per game. He also declined his player option this offseason and is a free agent this summer, but the Denver Post reported re-signing Gallinari is still a high priority for the organization.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThis is the second time in as many years the Nuggets have loaded up in the front court after taking Hernangomez from Spain last year. Before that, Denver’s last first-round pick in the same size and position was Faried in 2011.So, in drafting Lydon, the Nuggets created a sort of logjam:Trey Lyles, 6-foot-10, 234 pounds, third-year, 6.2 shots per game (2.9 3-pointers per game)Juan Hernangomez, 6-foot-9, 230 pounds, second-year, 3.6 shots (1.8)Darrell Arthur, 6-foot-9, 235 pounds, eighth-year, 5.2 shots (2.9)Tyler Lydon, 6-foot-9, 210 pounds, rookie, college stats: 9.4 shots (3.7)This summary does not include Faried who, despite playing just 61 games due to various injuries, played a large role in three of the Nuggets eight most-used lineups last season. Each of those players is under contract or has a team option through at least 2018-19. For Lydon to earn his minutes (and shots) he’ll need to navigate this clutter, and to do so, he’ll need to be more than a big, athletic threat from beyond the arc. Commentslast_img read more
