5 Aspects of Leadership that Increase Employee Engagement

September 26, 2013

jzcreationsz teamAs we go deeper and deeper into the 2013, Dale Carnegie Training here in Indianapolis sees a multitude of leadership challenges. Companies need to be on the top of their game. Concentrating on only the important dynamics within the organization seems like a solid strategy. There are many aspects of a business that needs attention for growth, opportunity and success.

Let’s look at five key aspects that leadership must manage well for effective employee and client engagement:

  • Communication: The organization exists with and for people. With many companies here in Indiana mobile and global, it is often difficult to communicate to everyone when some teams are across the state and further. Managing distance and diversity is critical for today’s company.
  • Structure: Rules and regulations in the classic organization often create additional red tape and must include the gray areas of both growth and vision. Consistency is essential when dealing with both opportunity and reality.
  • Transparency: When purpose is tied to vision, being in contact with all the employees and clients is truly time consumptive. Utilizing social media messaging and e-mail will help get ideas and directives in front of the right people at the right time.
  • Profitability: Unless there is revenue, a company can be doomed to failure. Giving personnel  the chance to grow by knowledge sharing and commonality will help ensure success.
  • Adjustments: Being a step ahead of the competition is critical in this rapidly adapting global marketplace. Change must be made based on the needs and wants and the organization’s continual focus on being the best.   

In the classic How to Stop Worrying and Start Living by Dale Carnegie, successful management and leadership must “learn to organize, deputize, and supervise.”  Written during Wprld War II, the statement is still true today. Leaders must make people who work for them the number one priority for success and additional opportunity.

    Again today I listened to the mp3 and then rewieved the pdf of the note. This is one of my favorite notes! (I have visited upon it at least 3 times in the past). It is so practical and focuses on what we can do -today-. No matter what your burden, you can carry it from awakening to falling asleep, right? Isn’t that what we do every single day? How many behaviors do we engage in habitually but don’t think of them as habits, because that is just how we are/how our life is? If I can carry the burden of my problems I can also carry the burden of my positive, productive rituals such as those mentioned in Quadrant 2 space yesterday. These are just routines, just habits. It should be no harder to do the positive stuff than to carry the negative burden. So get busy, rest before you get tired, then get busy again. This is by far one of my favorite quotes from all of the notes so far…. “The secret of being miserable is to have the leisure to bother about whether you are happy or not” so, “Get busy. Keep busy.” (and rest intermittently) :]
