John Michel's curator insight, July 9, 2013 6:08 AM

Creating a sense of belonging for people requires that leaders be engaged. It means investing time and energy to understand what’s going on with their people, their hopes and dreams, their fears and insecurities. Fostering belonging is about humanizing the workplace and creating a safe space where people can be vulnerable, real and authentic.

Russ Bergeman's curator insight, July 9, 2013 11:07 AM

This is a great piece that describes the challenge that many organizations deal with on a daily basis – the difference between employees fitting in and truly belonging. The most productive employees, those who are engaged, feel a sense of belonging, not just fitting in.

 

Although leaders can play a role in developing a culture of engagement, it really starts with the hiring process. I am a major proponent of implementing a scientifically and validated assessment tool (e.g., ProfileXT) to help on-board the “right” people who will have a more natural fit within the organization.

 

It may seem relatively easy for people to “adapt” in order to execute in a job or career. But, eventually, this will catch up with employees and show up in their overall work performance. When an organization hires people who will culturally belong leaders have more time to concentrate on other high payoff activities.

 

To learn more about the ProfileXT and it use for on-boarding, promoting, team-building, etc., visit - http://theemployersedge.com/assessment or contact me – russ@theemployersedge.com.

Have a look at the full article (little bit about personal branding):


You're building your "personal brand." If you're in the self-help genre and you want to be the next Tony Robbins or Tim Ferris, then promote yourself. Be my guest. Unless you are the product, focus on the product and its customers, not you.
