Is there a way to help ALL OF YOUR PEOPLE avoid disengagement given the business challenges they encounter? The answer is, yes! Leading for Engagement™ (LFE), shows managers how to create an environment which optimizes employee engagement.
Engaged in What?
Engagement is on the minds of most HR and business leaders, but we ask an important question: You want your employees to be engaged, but engaged in what? Engagement is worthless and even detrimental if your employees are focused on priorities that don’t align with your business goals and strategy. We call this “aimless engagement.”
Research shows that over one third of the workforce doesn't understand or buy into their organization’s business goals and strategy, which makes strategy execution a Herculean task. In contrast, enabling your workforce to be fully engaged in your business strategy drives strategy realization.
LFE provides managers with tools and strategies to mobilize employees to be engaged in your business strategy, mission-critical goals and change initiatives. We call this Aligned Engagement.
Research has identified 300 engagement drivers but only a “vital few” create significant engagement gains. We have synthesized these into a model that acts as the pillar of LFE, the ACE Model.
Accountability - Accountability leads to ownership which drives engagement
Change-Readiness - Employees must be ready to change in order to sustain their engagement
Enduring Purpose - Sense of purpose aligned with strategic direction = engagement
It’s one thing to attract top talent to your organization, diverse and otherwise, but after the so-called honeymoon period, how engaged do they stay? Employee engagement is one of the greatest business challenges your organization can face. Many employees work hard, but harsh work realities of long hours, scarce resources, daily firefighting, and constant change has an adverse effect on your workforce.
The continuity of innovation, revenue, profitability, sales, service, customer retention, and productivity are all compromised if you have a workforce which is less than fully engaged.
