As a leader, what are you doing to counter the third consecutive annual drop in employee engagement, now 32% as reported by Gallup?
The great Zig Ziglar often asked that in cases where you are fully focused on a project and dedicated to completing it in a timely manner, “Have you noticed that when someone has nothing to do, they want to do it with you?”
Many filling leadership positions continually look for the right program to resolve disengagement, while good leaders search for the opportunity to develop a principle-based workforce.
The best way to raise engagement in an organization is to lead it into a culture of accomplishment, knowing that those who are dedicated to achieving their objectives have a work ethic of focus and determination.
Remember when you momma taught you, “Birds of a feather flock together?”
Those focused on their tasks have little desire to spend their time with those who are not focused.
Instead, they invest their time in accomplishment.
Notice one is spending time while the other is investing it.
Sol says… “It is an honor for a man to cease from strife: but every fool will be meddling.” ~ Proverbs 20:3
When those you lead focus on achievement, only the poor performers will be left to meddle in others’ business.
Make it a great day and keep being awesome.
