Everyone who’s ever led a business or team probably agrees with this statement but when we ask leaders what their plan and process is for creating teams of fully engaged employees, well, the conversation tends to stall.
That might explain why, according to engagement research conducted by Gallup, nearly 70% of employees are not engaged in their work. Knowing that employee engagement is important is not very valuable unless leaders can operate in ways that increase and sustain it.
Employee engagement is critical to business growth and even survival. So much so, that we have devoted a large part of the leadership training and coaching we offer to helping leaders and managers understand what drives employee engagement and how to consistently create more of it.
The leaders and managers in your business can either improve employee engagement or kill it. It’s likely you have some leaders doing both of these things in your business right now. Do you know which ones are which? Do you know how to help the ones who are struggling begin to increase employee engagement? Do you have a process in your business for leading others in a way that causes employees to bring their best every day?
If the answer to those questions is yes, your business is probably successful beyond your expectations.
If the answer is no, and you want to change that, we can help.
