Resolve to engage your staff in 2015

ManagementIf you want to give your career  and your employer (or your own business) a major boost in 2015, then you might resolve to engage your staff in 2015.

It really can do wonders.

Employee engagement at its simplest is the extent to which people feel passionate about their jobs, are committed to the organization, and make their best discretionary efforts time after time.

What’s not to like about that?

You may have heard this old joke, but it’s still worth repeating.

Consultant: “How many people work here?

CEO: “About half.”

Sound familiar?

Price to be paid for lack of engagement

I Dare You
There is no shortage of great info available on engagement strategies managers can use every day to improve productivity, morale and results.

But it also helps to realize the price of failing to engage, or worse, being uncivil.

An article in the Harvard Business Review tells us that among workers who have been on the receiving end of rude managers:

  •  48% intentionally decreased their work effort.
  • 47% intentionally decreased the time spent at work.
  • 38% intentionally decreased the quality of their work.
  • 80% lost work time worrying about the incident.
  • 63% lost work time avoiding the offender.
  • 66% said that their performance declined.
  • 78% said that their commitment to the organization declined.
  • 12% said that they left their job because of the uncivil treatment.
  • 25% admitted to taking their frustration out on customers.

No time like the present. Get out there and help your employees shine.

    I believe that there are people with potential who never make it because of the lack of developmental mentors and managers. I have a creative background and collaborative history with everyone from everyday folks to astronauts, rock stars, Hollywood legends and political candidates. I want to make a significant difference in people who work as teammates and enjoy the benefits of being a wonderful
    contributor to business and educational management.
