“Engaged” is the current and popular management word to describe these enthusiastic, positive and passionate employees, where extra discretionary effort is a normal part of their jobs. The problem is that only one in five employees display these attributes.
The fact that only one employee in five is enthusiastic about his or her job is hardly news to those who regularly shop for goods and services; but it appears it is news to far too many managers, who seem to be asleep on the job!
You have done the team building program. You have had the annual conference. Now you are back at the coalface, and the energy in the organisation is lousy, your people are unhappy and unmotivated, they have lost their enthusiasm, and the momentum that you know you need to achieve your team’s goals is disappearing rapidly!
What do you do?
This Learning Module will give you step by step explanations and examples of proven strategies that will help you to overcome your challenges.
But first you have to be motivated enough to take the steps and implement the strategies. Just reading about them is not enough. You have to get into action. I hope you get sufficiently excited by the ideas in this module to implement them, with passion!
About Charles B Kovess, Australasia's Passion Provocateur©
