This is an in-depth audio presentation about employee engagement and its importance in a successful business. It is informative and well-researched, and the message is valuable. The author reads the material herself and does a pretty good job. I listened at regular speed, though I usually bump up audiobooks to 1.25 because most narrators speak a bit more slowly than conversation speed to take care with enunciation. Jill Christensen, however, reads pretty clearly at conversation speed (or at least the speed at which one delivers information in a setting like this), so 1.25 does make it feel too rushed. I can tell she isn't one of those professional marketing fake cheerleader types who are proficient in BS and who might have done a slightly better job at the delivery of lines, but frankly, that makes me like her more. (Super perky people, like clowns, have their uses and place in society, but I can't help that they just creep me out.)
Overall, this is a well-written, well-delivered, well-recorded, easy-to-follow, informative audiobook that is worth the time it takes to listen.
I received this audiobook in exchange for an unbiased review. The number of stars is based on where I believe this audiobook rates with other audiobooks of the same type, length and general feel-- not where it rates in comparison to all audiobooks of all time.

On how to motivate and communicate effectively with employees to get the best from them and make them feel invested in the company. I liked her take on leader vs. individual contributor and her four steps to increasing employee engagement. The use of champ and some of her examples were a little condescending but, overall, she gets to the point, stays on task and gives concrete ways you can use her material. I thought it was well done. I did listen on 1.5 speed as I usually do.
