Effectiveness In Engagement
"The changes you want to see in those around you start with YOU." —James McPartland
“These people just don’t get it.”
“If I don’t do it, or micro-manage it, it will never get done.”
These are statements by two frustrated CEOs of two different medium-sized companies — both struggling to become large-sized companies.
More often than not, after asking a series of thought-provoking questions, the leaders I work with begin to uncover how they can be responsible for solving these frustrating and growth-limiting views of their executive teams.
Over time, high-performing people recognize that they have trained others in how to engage them. And the importance of employee engagement in the workplace becomes clear.
If we want people to engage with us in new ways, we have to train them by how we interact with them in new ways.
And, before this can be effective, we first have to train ourselves in how to engage the world as it is and how we want it to be. We have to train ourselves to play the game of life at the highest level we “see” as possible and act in ways that demonstrate exactly that. As many have heard me say, “People hear what they see.”
