Need to improve employee engagement…let me share some great ways to improve Employee Engagement…guaranteed improvement!
Survey after survey shows that employee engagement remains low…why is that?
Here is my bold statement…TOO MANY OF OUR LEADERS DON’T UNDERSTAND WHAT EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT IS!!
In my experience, so many of our so-called “leaders” are managers rather than leaders. They have been promoted based on their subject matter competence rather than on leadership competence.
Leadership competencies focus on people, relationships and the bigger picture. Leaders ask “what” and “why” while managers ask “how” and “when”…which means that managers are so “stuck in the muck” of operational issues that they believe there is no time to focus on people and relationships.
How many of you have heard managers complain about having conversations with their direct reports to discuss their goals and plans for development? I have heard this complaint so often and my response is, “if this is not your job as a leader, I don’t know what is!” I get a lot of funny looks.
As a leader who focuses on people, relationships and the bigger picture, you get it…you know that this approach is the only way to achieve success. Research supports the fact that higher levels of employee engagement lead to transformational change.
Thinking about how easy it really is to improve employee engagement levels, I came across this infographic from callcentre.co.uk and loved its simplicity. Many of the factors that make an employee highly engaged do to cost their employers anything…it just takes a focus on people rather than tasks.
What would happen if you tried these ways?
