Building a Culture to Overcome Employee Disengagement
Employees are disengaged. They were disengaged before the global pandemic, and they continue to be disengaged as employers manage through the uncertainty of the pandemic.
While many employees indicate they are happier working from home, research shows they aren't more engaged. Which do you want? Happy employees who have embraced working at home in their pajamas, or employees who are dedicated and passionate as the result of an intellectual and emotional connection to your organization and its mission.
Even after a year of working from home, approximately one-third of employees are engaged. According to the Gallup Organization, the vast majority of employees simply show up to work each day (either to an office or at home) prepared to do the minimum to get by. This problem of employee disengagement is a source of ongoing frustration for leaders of any organization. Not only does it irritate the management team, it demoralizes the productive employees who carry the majority of the workload.
The solution for overcoming employee disengagement is Engaged Leadership … a proactive approach to leadership that involves building consensus for the vision, inspiring employees to pursue the vision, and developing the team to realize the vision. In the midst of managing the business, there must be a focus on developing better leaders who understand the importance of a strong culture with a focus on the employee.
For more than two decades, leadership keynote speaker Clint Swindall has been developing his own approach to leadership and can help you understand what actions can be taken to develop skills in all three areas, including:
How do Directional Leaders build a consensus for the vision?
How do Motivational Leaders inspire employees to pursue the vision?
How do Organizational Leaders develop the team to realize the vision?
In this program, Clint will discuss the importance of all three aspects of Engaged Leadership, and will stress the overall importance of having what he calls a “character core.” Whether he delivers the program in-person or virtual, Clint shares a considerable amount of useful information and delivers his message in an entertaining and inspirational style — whether as a keynote presentation or as an interactive, half-day or full-day training session.
