Look at # 1 - hiring for attitude, sound familiar. It's nice to see more and more science that backs up what should be intuitive to us. Attitude matters.

Garth Sanginiti's curator insight, July 1, 2013 7:30 PM

"Concentrating on employee engagement can help companies withstand, and possibly even thrive, in tough economic times. Gallup researchers in 2012 studied the differences in performance between engaged and actively disengaged work units and found that those scoring in the top half on employee engagement nearly doubled their odds of success compared with those in the bottom half."

John Michel's curator insight, June 27, 2013 8:07 AM

The human brain is hard-wired to notice and remember negative things more effectively than positive. That’s because the brain is hard-wired for survival, and is basically designed for a bygone “caveman/cavewoman” era. When you consider this, it makes sense that the brain registers and remembers objects and events associated with negative emotions more effectively than those associated with positive emotions.

Garth Sanginiti's curator insight, June 27, 2013 10:00 PM

"Thus, when it comes to employee engagement, employee morale, and employee productivity, employers must recognize what they do that might be damaging employee engagement, morale, and productivity. Likewise, managers must know how to do the same at an individual level. Otherwise, the negatives will overshadow all the good practices you implement."

Michael_J_Stone's curator insight, June 28, 2013 8:31 AM

Is this your "wake up test?" How many of these perceptions can be heard in your building? It seems like everyone I have ever spoken to about their job has said at least one of these ten things. 

 

Which one of these will you act on?
