True Employee Engagement: Appreciate & Recognize - Kate Nasser

True Employee Engagement: Appreciate & Recognize - Kate Nasser | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it

AlGonzalezinfo's insight:

Showing approciation authentically and consistently is NOT as easy as we may think.  In this article, Kate Nasser lists a balanced approach for consistent recognition and appreciation:

 

From the post:

 

Here is a balanced approach that respected successful leaders use.

 

~Know Your Team Members. 

Message: Avoid using the same stock communication with everyone. The better you know the employees, the better you can engage them.

 

~Show appreciation to create a growth culture fueled by high morale. Message: Overlook the appreciation and their passion wanes. Shy away from correction and you facilitate their crash. Withhold coaching and they stagnate.

 

~Recognize Growth as Well as Achievement. 

Message: If you want continuous improvement, highlight and recognize lessons learned as the fuel for growth.

 

~Applaud Talents That Are Constantly Applied to New Challenges

Message: To expand success, you must always maintain a solid foundation. Recognize talent that sustains the organization.

cool scoop! 

from the article:

 

Do you feel lost when you’re looking at your Facebook Page statistics?

Well, you’re not alone. Facebook metrics can be overwhelming and most Facebook Insights terminology is still hazy for many of us.

The power of storytelling, the key to consumer engagement

The power of storytelling, the key to consumer engagement | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it

Brands that succeed draw the consumer with a compelling narrative: Gatorade's replay series was a first-class example...

 

The winning formula for consumer engagement is storytelling. It sounds simple, but we only need to look back through history to see the impact that stories have had on shaping our lives: how we live them, why we live them and what it means to be human.

 

Narratives as powerful as the Bible, to ancient myths and Shakespeare's prose, speak to the heart, teaching us how to relate to one another and guiding us into action. Let's not forget that stories are easier on the ear than detached advertising taglines.

 

Studies of human psychology have found that if we are told something through narrative, we are more likely to relate to the message, absorbing it further and remaining engaged from start to finish.

For a brand to appeal to consumers and replicate this empowering engagement, its content must tell a story, one that draws us in, broadens our horizons and delivers added value to our lives.

But how do brands do it?

Rethinking the Work of Leadership

Rethinking the Work of Leadership | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it

Here we are in 2013 with organizational leadership models that continue to deny the social nature of organizations and wallow in inertia.

 

Our leadership practices remain authoritative. People are disengaged, distrusting and perhaps even disenfranchised.


Via Kenneth Mikkelsen
AlGonzalezinfo's insight:

Wonderul Scoop Kenneth!  I am currently working on understanding inclusion by exploring exclusion and this is absolutely perfect!  

 

While we may have a "diverse" employee base"  if we have authoritative and distrusting cultures, it is impossible to have inclusion!

If it were only so in the land of Dilbert.  Unfortunately this is pervasive in many organizations - lack of trust, lack of sharing knowledge and no collaboration all go hand in hand and are together the tools of a failure to innovate.

Inspirational Employee Engagement and Employee Appreciation Quotes

Inspirational Employee Engagement and Employee Appreciation Quotes | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it

According to the Corporate Leadership Council, employees with lower engagement levels are four times more likely to leave their jobs than those who are highly engaged.

 

But the importance of employee engagement isn't just increased employee retention; it's also about higher productivity.  

 

One study by HR strategy firm Kenexa found that of 64 organizations studied, the organizations with highly engaged employees achieved twice the annual net income of organizations whose employees were less engaged.
