One of a leader’s greatest responsibilities is to ensure teams are engaged and productive. People are motivated to increase productivity when leaders take time to get to know them personally, make them feel comfortable, and help remove barriers in the workplace. When we connect with employees in ways that are meaningful to them, they become more engaged, productivity and profits increase, meanwhile, turnover, absenteeism, and shrinkage decrease.
This episode addresses questions, such as:
How can we gather feedback from our employees?
Is there a way to establish genuine relationships with others at work?
Why is it important to have a good relationship with coworkers and subordinates?
How do I prioritize which processes in the organization need improving?
Conversations Demonstrate Care
“When we round, we are likely to retain high performing employees. We recognize more people, create an engaged work environment, and apply process-improvement strategies. Leader rounding is one of the most important tactics we can do to turn the organizational flywheel.“
Communication is a consistent challenge for leaders. 91% of employees are dissatisfied with communication from executive leadership (Solomon, 2015). When asked, most employees will explain they are not interested in more communication. They are looking for better and more relevant communication.
