Michael Lee Stallard, Fired Up or Burned Out

Michael Lee Stallard, Fired Up or Burned Out

Are you fired up? Or burned out? That’s the question Michael Lee Stallard asks in his book Fired Up or Burned Out: How to Reignite Your Team’s Passion, Creativity, and Productivity. He asks these questions about leadership and engagement after a successful corporate career. Before he left Wall Street in 2002 he had been the Learning Director and Chief Marketing Officer of the U.S. Trust business of  Charles Schwab, as well as a Principal and Chief Marketing Officer at the global private wealth management business of Morgan Stanley. I discovered Michael after reading his excellent Change This Manifesto, The Connection Culture.

In our interview we discuss:

  • How his wife getting sick revealed just how important and powerful connection truly is
  • The challenge of being deeply connected, when it’s so easy to be ‘friends’ on social media
  • The neuroscience that tells you why you need to interact regularly with people – even if you’re an introvert
  • The factor that is most significant in increasing engagement at work.
