The Engaging Leader Diary – Engaging Leaders Measure Engagement

 

I was talking today with Engagement Multiplier whose purpose is to enable 100 million people to become more measurably engaged. We love their engagement tool because if you can measure engagement then you can do something about it. A number of our clients are now trialing this and loving the metrics and anonymous dialogue they are able to have with their people.

But why doesn’t everyone bother measuring engagement? The truth is that measuring engagement is only for leaders who are bold and caring. Why? Because you are not sure what you are going to get back. Someone might say something about you that you don’t like or feedback that your organization does not care in the way you think it does? Yes it requires bravery and a thick skin. However, the rewards are enormous in getting it right. Just look at those young and thriving often tech companies that are taking the world by storm with engaged work forces that are the envy of many dinosaurs.

If you are not measuring engagement you need to do it. Do it before your former employees are putting off potential recruits on sites like Glassdoor. Do it to begin to truly engage your workforce, do it to improve productivity, do it to help the wellbeing of your employees……

I was introduced to Chris through Broker Network when he did a really interesting workshop on ‘Leading People including Talent Dynamics’ to myself and other business owners. Since then Chris has worked with our senior management team, bringing us closer together and making us work more effectively together. Going forward I am working with Chris on a 1-2-1 basis which I have no doubt will further my own development. Chris is a true gentleman and a pleasure to spend time with and he has opened my eyes to the importance of engagement of staff.
