5 Must Have Strategies To Fully Engage Your Team!

  1. Big Picture – Employees need to know what they are committing to in order to fully commit. As a leader, it is necessary to share your vision, your mission and your overall goals and objectives with your employees. Engaged employees know where the company is headed and how they’ll get there.
  1. Role Clarity – Everyone needs purpose, and helping employees understand their role in the company’s success provides the purpose they need to engage. Employees need clear roles and responsibilities and an understanding of how their role contributes to the overall company vision.
  1. Skin In The Game – People support what they help create. Employees engage when given a voice–a chance to be heard and listened to–and they take ownership when they see their ideas put into action.
  1. A Future – Employees will care about your company only if you care about your employees. Engaged employees have a future, a plan and a leader who invests in their career. Take the time to get to know your employees, understand their goals and their dreams, and invest in helping them reach their potential.
  1. Community – Engagement includes a sense of belonging and of community. Giving your employees occasions to connect (team projects, social outings, co-leadership opportunities) builds relationships, connection and community. All lead to a more passionate, more connected and more engaged team.

Employee engagement is your key to competitive advantage.
