After a successful 30 - year career as a strategic human resources executive with top Fortune 100 companies, Ruth Ross woke up one morning with a startling realization that she felt invisible at work and no longer had the passion for what she did. Instead of miring away in her role, losing her professional edge and not being the leader her team needed her to be, Ruth put a name to these feelings and admitted she was personally disengaged. Strongly believing that the need for reengagement, both at work and at home, had never been greater that it was now, she retired from her long-time role as an Executive Vice President of HR at Wells Fargo Bank to become an Engagement Evangelist. She works with companies and individuals to identify employee disengagement and create strategies for reengagement. Based on her own experience and the stories of hundreds of others like her, Ruth published her first book, “Coming Alive: The Journey to Reengage Your Life and Career” in 2014 and now travels around the country speaking to organizations about the return on investment of having a fully engaged workforce.
