The Most Valuable Currency in the World

What is the most valuable currency in the world? Gold? Diamonds? While they have monetary value, they are not a match for the true answer to the question. TRUST is the most valuable currency--in relationships. You cannot buy trust or manufacture it.

Some say, "Just trust me"! We expect people to trust us because we are nice enough. But trust is earned based on several factors. Reflect on how you answer to the below questions.

-Integrity: Do you tell the truth and act in a way that people feel is consistent to what you say?

-Sincerity: Do you convey that you are sincere in what you are expressing or is it merely a script; something you feel you are supposed to say? 

-Accountability: Do you willingly admit to yourself and others about mistakes you've made?

-Follow-Through: Do you follow through and do what you say?

Nobody is perfect. But if we want to develop strong trust with others, we must practice and master these key areas. Trust is critical to every relationship we want to build and every goal we want to achieve.

Personal Challenge:

How will you strengthen your trust with others this week?

All The Best,

Do Your Employees Feel What They Do Matters?

by blogadmin 8. April 2019 02:59

Increases in technology and employee management strategies have driven home an important point: EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT is important to business success, but yet woefully ignored. Gallup reports only 15 percent of employees worldwide are engaged in their jobs. A bit of good news is that American workers are twice as likely to be engaged, but even so, that leaves 70% of employees who are disengaged at work.

The cost of disengaged employees to US businesses is a staggering $350 billion per year. To put that in perspective, for every unegaged employee on staff you business will lose $2,246 per year. Disengaged employees take more sick days, miss deadlines, cause customer complaints, and complain. Turnover rates are higher when employee engagement is low, morale is low, and engaged employees find it difficult to work to their full potential.

Here are 5 trends that Human Resources Today expects to see gain traction in 2019:

(1) Do you provide purpose? It's often overlooked, but employees need to feel what they do matters. Not only millenials, but the iGeneration want their work to have purpose. Capitalize on this by ensuring employees understand company values, and how their tasks-big or small-affect company success. Recognition is closely related to feelings of purpose and boosts employee engagement.

(2) Do you focus on employee experience? Employee experience relates to everything the employee does or feels on the job. Technology, corporate culture, workspace, and support systems all factor in to employee experience. Companies who cultivate employee experience have 4 times the average profits of their nonexperiential peers and see 40 percent less turnover. By treating each employee as customers, you ensure a better experience from the bottom up.

(3) Do you adopt professional development into your employment strategies? Technology is evolving at an ever-faster rate. AI, automation, augmented reality, and software advances are all changing the job market, leaving employees concerned their skills will quickly become obsolete. Deloitte Insights reports traning and development rank as the number one job driver for employees under the age of 25 and number two for up to age 35.

(4) Do you provide performance feedback quickly to your employees? Traditional performance reviews were a trial for managers and a major stressor for employees. Today, the use of real-time feedback tools is key. Employees value feedback as it helps them perform better and improves their standing in the workplace. Effective performance managment helps employees align their personal goals with larger organizational goals, helping both employees and the company develop and grow.

(5) Do you commit to diversity and inclusion? Employees feel psychologically safe knowing their company is committed to fairness and equity. Companies who rely on diverse and inclusive work teams are more engaged, creative, and innovative. 

Personal Challenge:

Do your employees show up physically, emotionally, and cognitively every day? Are they enthusiastic about what they do and why they do it? Do they naturally find ways to excel and do you support them? Which of these questions have you answered yes? How about sometimes? How about no? Start with the no's and the maybe's this week. Outline a few initiatives and get engaged!

Have a great week!
