Question:What’s the #1 driver for employee engagement?
Answer:Senior management sincerely interested in employee well-being.*
Research has discovered what leaders need to do increase employee engagement, but not how. That’s where PerformanceWorks comes in. We focus on the how.
How does empathy translate into competitive advantage?
It’s been said that employees join companies but leave managers. To realize an organization’s full potential, leaders need to understand the power they possess to affect their employees’ level of happiness and engagement. Empathy is the catalyst for building positive workplaces and moving employees up the engagement ladder because it meets a primary human need: to be valued and recognized as an individual. The greater your employees’ engagement, the greater their loyalty and productivity and the greater your competitive edge.
While empathy is a learned skill, more important than technique is a wholehearted desire to relate to your employees from a place of authenticity and genuine caring – that #1 driver of engagement. Our Empathy Edge™ Coaching Program gives you both the skill and the guidance to find and develop that place. We begin with measuring your level of empathy and then craft a personalized development program, leveraging your strengths to address areas of need.
