5 Powerful Steps to Improve Employee Engagement

5 Powerful Steps to Improve Employee Engagement | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

The current business environment, and the world in general, is moving faster than it ever has before. Organizations across the globe are faced with more change than most can handle – in order to compete and dominate their segment they are required to grow faster often giving them less time to focus on managing all of their financial goals. They are forced to grow quickly with fewer resource - to do more with less. Managers have to learn to excel in managing themselves, their teams and meeting organizational goals simultaneously.

 

It is a common understanding of a vast majority of leaders that the employees are a company’s most important asset. But in reality, that is only true when the majority of the workforce is fully engaged in their work. If not, they are either adding minimal value or actively working against the organization.

 

There are three types of employees in any organization:

Penelope's curator insight, September 29, 1:52 PM
One must admire Elon Musk for all he has accomplished thus far, but his latest internal communication, I believe, is a recipe for disaster. The directive was to just forget about your manager, and go to whomever would solve the problem the fastest. Managers, already being the whipping boys, are going to rebel out loud or on the sly. I can't see this being helpful at all.

Five Simple Tips For Building A More Emotionally Intelligent Team

Five Simple Tips For Building A More Emotionally Intelligent Team | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

Getting smart people into your company is hard enough. Turning them all into great collaborators and risk-takers is even harder. Even on the most high-performing teams, coworkers don’t just openly share feedback and challenge each others’ ideas all on their own–managers need to create a culture that encourages this. And that usually requires building your team’s collective emotional intelligence. Here are a few straightforward (and entirely low-tech ways) to get started.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, October 17, 2:19 PM
Despite what we see with some so-called leaders (with naricissistic tendencies) in politics, schools, and corporations, leaders assume responsibility and understand they cannot control everything. Good teaching is premised on this as well.

Although managing is essential in certain situations, it is too often conflated with leading.

The One Thing Principals Can Do to Create 100% Engagement | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

“Every time we've seen a malaise of under-performance, with no exception, it is directly related to what we believe and expect of people; how motivated we believe they are or aren't, how much we believe they will care or won't', how much WE BELIEVE they are ready and willing they are to take initiative and responsibility - or not. And that's the problem. Until we believe the best of people, and require that they live up to their best, we're likely to have 70% phoning it in.“

Why most CEOs lack emotional intelligence

Why most CEOs lack emotional intelligence | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
As I looked into Igor’s face, it was imperative that I accurately interpret his reaction to my words. Emotional intelligence is not taught at the FBI Academy, but it was essential for me to understand the difference between anxiety and sadness when interviewing people like Igor. I needed to know whether I could trust him to help me in my investigation. You may never need to interview an individual whom you suspect of being a foreign spy. It is possible, however, that you will need to impress a new client or calm down an frustrated customer.

7 Indicators Your Team Is Dysfunctional | Ron Edmondson

7 Indicators Your Team Is Dysfunctional | Ron Edmondson | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
Chances are, if you’ve served on very many teams, you’ve served on one which is dysfunctional. It appears to me we have many to choose from in the organizational world. There are no perfect teams. We are all dysfunctional at some level and during some seasons.

In case you’re wondering- my definition of a dysfunctional team – in simple terms – is one which cannot operate at peak efficiency and performance, because it is impacted by too many negative characteristics. There’s more going wrong than right more days than not.
