Read Michael Kanazawa’s 5 sentences on engagement:
- I define employee engagement as the ability to tap into the full potential and passion of each person so that they will be able to perform their best work possible on the job.
- Our biggest challenge in employee engagement is accepting mediocrity and simple task completion instead of expecting greatness from every member on the team.
- A powerful way to create greater employee engagement is to clarify your strategy, specify clear goals, recruit a team of top talent, and allow people to innovate and drive results.
- I am personally most engaged at work when I have a clear goal, am allowed the freedom to innovate to achieve breakthrough results and am working with an inspired team of “A” players on that goal.
- To learn more about employee engagement, I encourage people to approach leadership by understanding that the most direct route to driving great business performance is to infuse people with a purpose and self-confidence, not just hammer away at task lists.
