Will you increase employee engagement this week?

Being a leader doesn’t just mean you have followers.  It means you help create other leaders.  To do this, you may need to create a shift in the mindset of your employees or even yourself in order to increase their level of engagement.  Here’s some tips and techniques that seem to be effective.

START HERE … with some stats. A Gallup poll in 2011 stated that 72% of US workers are not engaged in their work which they defined as essentially “sleep-walking throughout their day” and 1 in 4 intend to “jump ship” within a year.  HERE’s the full article. 

READ this… Learning what DDT is and how to make the shift from it to the Creator Orientation can be a foundational step to elevating a mindset that is stuck and may be the first step to increasing employee engagement. 

THINK about this… What do you want as a leader of your organization?  How engaged are your employees?  Is drama blocking innovation in your company or causing a lack of productivity and therefore higher profits?  Do you know each of your employee’s strengths and are you allowing them to work from those?

TRY this… ask the question, “What do you need me to know about this story?” when someone is stuck in their drama and you need them to bottom line it for you.  A follow-up question that is effective is, “What do you want?”

I was fortunate on Friday to give our presentation on Make Shift Happen to the Board of Junior Achievement.  These dedicated leaders volunteer their time to help young people own their own economic success, plan for the future, and make smart academic and economic choices.  They truly make shift happen.  Bravo and thank you for all that you do for our youth!  

Friday was a busy day as I also gave the keynote commencement address to the graduating class at ITT Technical Institute.  Congratulations to students that had some major grit and truly made shift happen in their lives.

I make shift happen in companies and organizations just like yours. Give us a call at (540) 798-1963 if we can be of assistance to you.
