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……

If you are in a leadership position, one of the big challenges is getting more from less. What Chris has brought to me personally and to Everards is to be efficient in my thinking, to ensure I prioritise with my team, evaluate very clearly what we are doing and as a result continuously grow. In these economic times, it would be easy to look at an engagement with Chris as a cost. I would encourage anybody to look upon it as an investment in that you will achieve more from less and will only understand what that means for you personally and your business more broadly via that engagement. For anyone out there looking to achieve more for less, looking to increase their profitability and value of their business, then Chris is a man to work with. He will deliver huge added value to your business.
