Less than 1 out of 5 employees is fully engaged at work
One of the real and still hidden resources of your organisation is the level of energy and engagement that people gain and provide – both at work and in their private life. The key is understanding how effective personal energy management will help us achieve higher performance and life quality.
Map your culture gap
Many companies find it hard to define the concept of culture. They find it even harder to understand how it interacts with “hard-core” concepts such as strategy and business goals.
Values and leadership principles
Values are key to implementing the strategy. But to define a value platform with an extra twist – and prepare the ground for successful implementation – you must ensure broad involvement of staff in the process.
To engage people in effective collaboration, you need to invest in building a strong team. What you get in return is staff satisfaction and a better bottom line.
We believe that people support what they create. Promoting engagement, understanding and commitment will not only ensure the well-being of your staff, it will guarantee your change project’s success.
Leadership is the single most important factor when it comes to improving quality and increasing productivity in any organisation.
The Making of a Corporate Athlete
If there is one quality that executives seek for themselves and their employees, it is sustained high performance in the face of ever-increasing pressure and rapid change. But the source of such performance is as elusive as the fountain of youth.
Manage Your Energy, Not Your Time
Steve Wanner is a highly respected 37-year-old partner at Ernst & Young, married with four young children. When we met him a year ago, he was working 12- to 14-hour days, felt perpetually exhausted, and found it difficult to fully engage with his family in the evenings, which left him feeling guilty and dissatisfied. He slept poorly, made no time to exercise, and seldom ate healthy meals, instead grabbing a bite to eat on the run or while working at his desk.
Aim for motivation
Leaders who want to become better at evoking motivation and engagement have to work with their way of thinking and focus on seeing the intrinsic motivation within all employees.
Unmotivated employees? The arrow is pointing at you
You have no unmotivated employees – they are actually always motivated. Sometimes they just happen to be motivated for doing something different than what you want them to do in a given situation. Learn how to point motivation in the right direction.
