"

I'm giving you these comments because I have very high expectations and I know that you can reach them.

That's it: just 19 words. But those words are powerful because they are not really feedback. They're a signal that creates something more powerful: a sense of belonging and connection.

Looking closer, the phrase contains several distinct signals:

1)    You are part of this group.

2)    This group is special; we have higher standards here.

3)    I believe you can reach those standards."

Daniel Watson's curator insight, April 3, 1:14 AM


A lot has been written in recent times on the subject of employee engagement, and business owners generally don't have the time to digest all the nuances embedded in the copious quantity of information available, so the essence of what is important is of more use to the average business owner.


Simply distilling  the information available relating to improving employee engagement levels, does not provide any form of guidance as to what to prioritise to make an earlier difference, therefore a different approach is needed.


This excellent article by a practicing global director of employee engagement, suggests that by connecting the brand and employees a business owner can make meaningful progress towards improving employee engagement levels, and it outlines the five areas of focus that are key steps to making this happen sooner rather than later.

Great scoop by Anne Leong via via @anne_leong.  As a work with a number of clients and continue my own journey through this process, I find the questions listed extremely helpful!


Again and again, we have to decide:

  • Do I keep doing what’s always been done, or challenge old assumptions ad try new approaches to problems?
  • Do I proactively seek new challenges or just manage those I already have?
  • Do I risk being exposed and vulnerable, or act to protect my pride and patch of power?  
  • Do I ask for what I really want, or just for what I think others want to give me?
  • Do I ‘toot my horn’ to ensure others know what I’m capable of, or just hope my efforts will be noticed?
  • Do I speak my mind or bite my lip, lest I ruffle feathers or subject myself to criticism?

Wow, those questions were not exactly "fun" to answer (especially rapidly and honestly). However, I have always been told that "If your dreams don't scare you, then they aren't big enough". This is something that I have lived my life by for quite some time now, and it definitely appears to be more than true... "If you are always comfortable, then you are never growing." It's worth some discomfort/fear in order to grow and reach goals! Thoughts? How tempting is it to stay under the umbrella of comfort? Is it worth it?

Great business benefits from engaged employees

Kudos's curator insight, March 23, 2:00 PM

These infographics are great but do they convince you to invest in Employee engagement initiatives?  

 

I am often asked what is the ROI on employee engagement or How do I measure if it works?

 

It is a difficult to measure with a direct cause and effect calculation that can be attributed to enhancing communication, recognition and feedback for your team. But we all know intuitively it is the right thing to do and that it is hard.

 

All the antidotal evidence says it is very important to success on a variety of levels.

 

The simplest thing you can do is benchmark where you are today and then implement and support an employee engagement program and then measure it again in 90 days and 180 days and then annually if not semi annually.   

 

1.) Does your team feel more connected to the company, their direct boss and one another?

2.) Does  your team understand the companies goals and objectives?

3.) Does your team feel appreciated?

4.) Does the team feel the company has a bright future?

5.) Does the individual feel they have a bright future with the company?

 

If the engagement initiative results is an improvement in any all all of theses simple measures - you know you have a more committed team.  Now whether or not that effects the bottom line will take time and continued commitment to work on the things that create engagement. Simple measures like voluntary turnover, cost of recruitment are simple to measure year over year with any statical accuracy and are the closet things you can assume to have a correlation to an engagement initiative.

 

The real questions you need to ask yourself first are these questions.

 

1.) Do you think your team is engaged?

2.) What are you doing now to engage your team?

3.) How is that working for you?

4.) If you could get a majority of your team care a bit more about their job and the company and invest a bit more discretionary effort - do you think that would help your business? 

 

They key to success is a commitment to changing your culture from being absent to being present. If leadership communicates and shows they care about success and their people, the team will follow. And that can only mean good things for your business.

 

The alternative is to continue the floggings until moral improves.

Do you Think Like a Servant Leader or Act Like The Smartest Guy in the Room? This article is written for IT Leaders, but applies to leadership of all areas.

Christian Bartosik's curator insight, March 15, 4:09 AM

The typical oldstyle manager seeks to achieve outstanding performance by focusing on processes and data.  He thinks that if he tweaks the workflow and captures some additional metrics, he can improve team performance.

He is always willing to set aside his job of planning, organizing, staffing and controlling in order to jump in to deal with the crisis of the day. Problem solving provides immediate gratification and allows him to go home at the end of the day feeling as if he has accomplished something.

The thoughts of a servant-leader would be completely different. His job is to develop people, not systems. Such a leader would view the success of his team as the means of achieving that success and would behave accordingly.  He would ensure the team has the resources it needs and would seek to remove obstacles that impede the team’s progress.  

The servant-leader allows the team to solve the crisis of the day without direct intervention.  He may provide coaching, advice or additional resources to the team, but he lets them work out the solution.  And he makes sure the team gets the credit for the solution.  The servant-leader understands that, over time, the problem solving skills of the team will exceed his own abilities.
