Finding Your Sweet Spot: How Power, Passion, and Priorities Spark Engagement
Employee Engagement Tina Robinson Nov 14, 2019
Do you want to feel more engaged at work? Do you want to work with more engaged colleagues? Do you want both? You’re in the right place. Let’s start with the obvious. We've been approaching engagement all wrong. Because the statistics continue to prove it. Only one-third of US employees are engaged at work - and this number has barely moved in 15+ years. More than half are looking for that next job right now. 70% of the variance in team-level engagement is influenced by the manager. And turnover costs organizations costs 30-200%+ of the departed employees’ annual salaries Organizations spend countless hours and dollars trying to make their people fall in love with their brand (and their cool floor plan, funky logo, and kitchen full of kombucha) instead of encouraging them to love what they do. While free swag and bringing my pets to work might buy a bit more time and a higher score on the latest ""pulse"" survey, it's not going to shift my deeper engagement. As humans we have a need and a creative drive to enjoy life. When we love what we do we stand in our own power and are in more harmonious relationship with everything and everyone. This translates to more effective interactions, more productive output, and stronger business results. When we love what we do we're more likely to love doing it for those who celebrate us. THIS is engagement. And for most organizations, this is RADICAL engagement. Together we will explore “radical engagement” from three angles - individuals finding their professional 3Ps sweet spot (powers + passion + priorities) and identifying what they love to do, managers encouraging and rewarding the sweet spot, and organizations hiring for and nurturing engagement.
