Did you know that 67 percent of Americans report being unengaged at work and that 75 percent of employees who leave voluntarily report doing so to get away from their managers?
Imagine the impact on your team’s performance when everyone brings their best selves to work every day. This is exactly why an organization’s top 10% of leaders can double the revenue and impact of the middle 80%. When you bring out the best in your people, you build high levels of commitment to your company’s success. Better engagement = higher performance = greater revenues and impact.
You start, of course, by being authentic and building trust. Compared with people at low-trust companies, notes a Harvard Business Review study, people at high-trust companies report 74% less stress, 106% more energy at work, 50% higher productivity, 13% fewer sick days, 76% more engagement, 29% more satisfaction with their lives, 40% less burnout.
