Somewhere around the late 1980s or early 1990s we stopped talking about employee morale and started talking about Employee Engagement instead.

Miguel Paul Trijaud Calderón's insight:

Engagement - 12 ideas to listen to your employees

more...
David Hain's curator insight, July 6, 10:44 PM

"The chief benefit of the annual Employee Engagement Survey is that it lets a tone-deaf HR leader say to her leadership team, “Look how high our engagement scores are this year! Surely I’m doing my job!”" ~ Liz Ryan

Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s curator insight, July 7, 7:01 AM

      I like the engagement concept, but it has been twisted to suit a management perspective that is unhelpful. It is helpful to think of engagement as behavioral and emotional commitment; this results in loyalty to the company a willingness to stay and provide discretionary effort. A prerequisite to engagement is employee satisfaction and positive morale.

 

      The problem with engagement arose because it was presented in many instances as a tool for driving performance. Consultants and pollsters latched onto the idea that if you measured engagement you could then take various actions to change it with a variety of employee focused HR tools. All of sudden then HR had the means, it believed, to drive, employee performance-- and, of course, how could this not be valuable for business and management.

     In fact, engagement is useful because it begins to address the complexity of motivating organizational behavior. It helps us understand that both intrinsic and extrinsic factors should be considered, that the social conditions are important as well. Engagement points to the fact that a whole person approach is needed to fully enlist individual efforts on behalf of the organization.

 

      To obtain a truly engaged workforce, enterprises must start with choosing people who see it as more than simply a place to work;who see it as a valuable, useful means to a positive end for themselves and the broader community of which they are a part. Enterprises must come to the realization that supporting individuals in reaching their goals is the cost of getting individuals to support the organization's.

 

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 7, 7:08 AM

The one that gets me is the empowerment racket. As if we have the power to give someone else power. I hear this in education all the time. We are going to empower students as if we do their learning for them. Creating a positive and healthy learning environment with reciprocal relationships is the key.

Storytelling Implications: Appealing To Values, Not Attitudes

Storytelling Implications: Appealing To Values, Not Attitudes | HR Learning & Development Toolkit. | Scoop.it

Karen Dietz's curator insight, September 12, 9:27 AM

Here's something to think about over the weekend -- when you are sharing your stories is your objective to change attitudes or values?


Turns out the answer could make a world of difference for you if you want to be more successful.


For many years I wrote about values (personal and organization), did workshops about them, and diagnosed companies regarding them. Here is part of what I taught:  values generate beliefs, behaviors, and attitudes. But the foundation is always a person's values.


So if you really want to fundamentally change yourself -- or facilitate change in someone else -- look to values.


This article does a handy job of explaining all of this and shares some important research from 2012 about circumventing resistance.


Bottom line for storytelling: craft your stories to address values, not simply attitudes. If you do so, you will rock the world.

Miguel Paul Trijaud Calderón's insight:

Research related to game-based learning suggests children learn more when they play in small groups.  The conclusion was that: “The optimal group size was around 3, at least in terms of sharing and learning how to use the device and excel at the game. A student alone with a device struggled more than a group of 3 students. At a group of 7 students, some never got close enough to the device. Frustration and disengagement prevailed in a group size less than 3 and more than 3.”
