Studies show that employees, and some managers, are 70% to 80% disengaged. No discretionary effort or initiative is shown by these folks, and it’s killing our organizations. So, here’s how to help people engage.
What you’ll learn from this episode:
- Does your organization have a clear purpose? Does everyone who works there know what that purpose is? Are the people you hire committed and evangelists for your purpose?
- Is there clarity around success and performance? The only way you can help an employee have ownership over their role, which ultimately drives engagement, is if that employee knows how to win independent of their manager’s opinion of them.
- Do you have accountability for results in your organization? If not, that causes disengagement. Those who aren’t performing don’t care because they still get to keep their job. Those who do want to perform don’t care either. It doesn’t matter, because if they do perform they are only given more work to do.
