Almost every business report, article, blog (and maybe even tweet) you read today has one common thread: driving employee engagement is paramount to your success as a manager and an organization.
Empowering and engaging your employees is not a complex topic. It’s actually quite simple. However, there is still a huge population of managers out there struggling with the concept. Layer by layer organizations continue to pile on new technologies designed to engage, develop, train and retain top talent. But organizations often lose sight of the one commonality that we can all agree on – we are all human beings who desire constructive and meaningful face-to-face conversations.
That’s what it’s all about, right?
Earlier this week we sat down with the always insightful and very funny Fistful of Talent crew members, Kris Dunn, Paul Hebert, Holland Dombeck, and RJ Morris, to discuss the truths of driving employee engagement. I could go on and on reiterating what they said, but the proof is in the pudding. Take 22 minutes out of your day and watch the video. I promise you that you’ll enjoy it, and in the event you don’t let me know, I am all for constructive criticism.
