Is employee engagement an if for you?
Sometimes employee engagement seems iffy:
- If only my managers was better.
- If only I didn’t work with this team.
- If only I could change jobs.
- If only this was a different company.
- If only I was younger or older.
- If only I wasn’t so tired.
- If only I could find something I believe in.
- If only someone else or something else would change.
- If only they would pay me better.
- If only someone would recognize me.
- If only I could retire.
- If only I didn’t have so many family demands.
- If only I was in charge.
- If only I wasn’t in charge.
Don’t make engagement an iffy proposition. Determine what you can do right now without the if or the when to experience engagement as a selfish gift to yourself. And if some things need to change, as they often do, don’t forget to get engaged in working at making those changes.
