Stop Burning Out Your Employees

A new study finds that the live-fast, die-young model of overworking employees doesn't pay off--even in the short term. Try these alternative ways to motivate your staff.

 

There's a certain glamour to burning the candle at both ends, living fast, working ridiculously hard, playing hard, and, perhaps, burning out young.

 

And it doesn't just apply to rock stars. It affects plenty of business owners too.

 

Sure, you know pushing your employees to work 60-plus hour weeks or to continually create without recharging their brains isn't sustainable, but perhaps you're calculating that the short-term gains from this big push will make up for the reduced productivity or staff-turnover costs down the line.

 

But if that's what you're thinking, according to new, in-depth research your math is wrong. The Towers Watson 2012 Global Workforce Study looked at 32,000 employees across 30 countries to see how engagement affects productivity (and profits) over the long haul. The HBR Blog Network summarizes the findings:

Why I Lead

Why I Lead | New Leadership | Scoop.it
I grew up in the New Jersey suburbs with typical boyish aspirations of being a football player, astronaut, fireman or Olympian. I didn’t consider growing up to be a leader. But it happened somehow. Although I watched my dad carefully, I guess it was because I never really sensed I had someone before me to follow. Today I lead my company as President of Unique Photo, NJ’s Camera Superstore and its 75+ employees. I lead my non-profit as a board member at The Josephine Herrick Project.So here’s why I lead:I lead because I have grown to learn the hard and valuable way that no vi

Are You Living Your Values? 3 Steps to Make Sure You Are On Track | New Leadership | Scoop.it

When I first heard someone talk about values, I thought they were talking about things like “don’t steal” or “treat others the way you want to be treated.” I learned that values are the underlying aspirations and intentions we have for and about ourselves. A value could be a thirst for learning, a strong desire to create, or a yen for adventure. Our values are who we are, at our core, right here, right now—and they guide our behavior.

(From the article): Creating workplace collaboration isn’t as simple as just telling employees to work together. Instead, managers must give their teams specific tools, then oversee how they are being used.


“We often tell people to work together, but we don’t tell them how,” said E Allan Lind, professor of leadership at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business, North Carolina. “First, we have to be mindful that people working together is not a normal state of things.”

 

Managers must show how good ideas come out of working together. They must also demonstrate that real collaboration equals innovation, and be on the watch for communication breakdowns.

The Four Critical Needs of High Performing Teams : | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Without a doubt, you have put effort into trying to motivate and inspire your team to perform at a high level. But even the best managers and leaders get stuck from time to time on how to instill these qualities into their team. No doubt, team members have struggled to display these qualities.


When initiative, productivity, creativity and execution are lacking, the costs to the team can be very real. The tangible results can be a lackluster product or service, subpar customer service, team members finding it difficult to work with each other, a leader struggling to get vital feedback. This costs your company, your department, your team and you revenue and reputation.

Our emotions are driven by biological impulses. These biological impulses are beyond our control, but the resulting emotions are not. When emotions are running high, they certainly cannot be ignored – but they can be carefully managed. This is called self-regulation, and it’s the quality of emotional intelligence that liberates us from living like hostages to our impulses.
