To be fully engaged means to be physically energized, emotially engaged, mentally focused, and spiritually vested. In this book Jim Loehr and Tony Schwartz offer their precise understanding of how to help individuals and organizations manage energy to drive full engagement.
Four forms of energy pulse through each of us at all times: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. To thrive, we must recruit all four of these energies in the service of a specific mission. To be fully engaged means to be physically energized, emotially engaged, mentally focused, and spiritually vested.

A very compelling, pragmatic and universal model for how change occurs. The program described so clearly in On Form prompted me and many of my executives to look at life differently, not only at work but at home. I had never thought of energy as a fundamental element in everything we do. As a leader, I have learned that when I don't have the kind of energy I need to be effective, I need to quickly retreat and regroup beforereturning to the front lines. The ideas in this book have the power to change what you think is possible in your life. — Steve Reinemund President and CEO Pepsico
In a fiercely competitive world, we are all looking for every possible advantage. The most powerful element of the Corporate Athlete training is its ability to statistically demonstrate that you can increase peoples capacity to perform. On Form lays out a program for establishing highly specific routines that produce measurable results. My team is very tough-minded and skeptical, and this program had a profound effect on how effectively we work together and on shaping our priorities on and off the job. — Peter Scaturro CEO Citigroup Private Banking
