#1 Reason Why Employees Quit

Vital Germaine

We have all experienced at one point in our careers a bad boss! The boss who disrespected us, bullied us, harassed us, was indifferent, rude, belittling or simply didn’t like us. It heavily affected our performance. Maybe you took a few more sick days off as a result. Some of you became less effective or focused on the job. Perhaps your attitude became negative and contagious? Did you become more confrontational, indifferent or even a bad employee?

These are typical symptoms of the unhappy disengaged employee and it costs businesses not only dollars in lost productivity, but heavily impacts customer experience and the reputation of a brand. It only takes one bad manager or boss to cause a chain reaction within your culture.

DID YOU KNOW?

  1. The number 1 reason why people quit their jobs is a bad boss or immediate supervisor - Gallup poll of more than 1 million employed U.S. workers
  2. 2 MILLION Americans a month voluntarily quit their jobs - The US Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics
  3. 1 in 2 employees are not happy at work - Gallup survey of 25 million employees, part time and full time, in 189 different countries.

To optimize team dynamics it's crucial to have a solid culture that allows employees, if not invites them to thrive. Leadership must constantly and respectfully reinforce that culture and inspire the team to excel and expand. 

You can't blame an employee for quiting on you because their boss is a ??? As an employee, know when to quit and when to stay! Here's a tip (see graphic)

Too many companies allow bad bosses to remain in positions of management or leadership without fully realizing the negative impact is has on their bottom line! Sometimes it's a reflection of the CEO or executive leadership and culture they establish by example.  

As leaders it's wise to frequently self evaluate and make sure you are not the bad boss that makes people quit. Be the boss that inspires greatness. Lead to empower not to have power.

7 Steps To Turn Ordinary into Extraordinary

Vital Germaine

American football broadcaster and former player, Jimmy Johnson says, "The difference between ordinary and extraordinary, is that little extra."

It’s never easy to remain energized and motivated in any work environment. Company culture and leadership can and does influence engagement, but it is ultimately a personal choice as to the work ethic we establish and execute for ourselves. Becoming extraordinary or achieving greatness is an individual endeavor that burns from within.

  1. PASSION: Withou passion, there is niether fuel nor direction to achieve a desired outcome. Passion is more than an intense LOVE or a compelling enthusiasm for an action or goal. It is also a love and compelling enthusiasm for those with whom you work or interact with. In other words... ADD MORE COWBELL, it will take you the extra mile! Nonetheless, passion without a plan is easily wasted! 
  2. PURPOSE: It is crucial to have a "WHY." When our why is evident it adds meaning to what we do and how we do it. Purpose propells us to pursue and achieve because the reason becomes larger and more powerful than just ourselves. Human's have an innate desire or need to have a positive impact on those around us. Tap into that desire or need and inertia will take care of the rest and elevate your successes.
  3. BE CHILDLIKE: By being child-like and curious we find fun in the scary. Our inner child tends to be less handcuffed and willing to explore, stumble and discover. 
  4. HAVE FUN: We are better when laughing, enjoying and having fun... better parents, better friends, better employees, better lovers, BETTER EVERYTHING! We learn more, we experience less fear and are more invigorated, enthusiastic and optimistic when enjoying what we do.
  5. WILLINGNESS TO FAIL: From failure come lessons and experience and new opportunities. The key is to not be afraid and to fail quickly. Use failure as a platform to build upon. It takes courage.
  6. AUTHENTICITY: Be YOUnique. Be you in your truest and best form. Commit to share the best of you consistently and in a way that makes you memorable, likeable and trustable. Share the best of your truest self and inspire those around you to better themselves.
  7. STEPPING OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE:  That's where the magic happens. That's where ordinary becomes extraordinary! Take the risk, let go, be free, explore, discover, surprise yourself and achieve. Don't be afraid to fail.

3 Simple Steps to Inspiring and Achieving Greatness

Vital Germaine

Many pursue and desire greatness but don't know how to achieve it or inspire it. Fortunately, through years of experience and extensive research, ENGAGE has created relevant and meaningful guidelines or tricks, approaches, attitudes and mindsets that can enthuse, activate, and enable extraordinary results on a personal and/or professional level. 

There is no quick fix, singular formula, pill or overnight solution to inspiring or achieving greatness. It is a process a never-ending pursuit that can be attained more easily than one thinks.

At ENGAGE, we have broken down the process into to 3 simple to follow steps listed below.  We call them: FUEL - AMMUNITION – TOOLS (F.A.T)

Establishing the “why” behind any pursuit or goal, and understanding the purpose and meaning is paramount. The more significant, expansive and encompassing your “why” is, and the greater its positive and relevant impact is on others, the easier it becomes to realize. We are always more driven by a cause that is greater than ourselves.

Here are the 3 SIMPLE STEPS (F.A.T).

  1. FUEL
  • Determination (drive, resilience, persistence)
  • Courage (inner strength)
  • Happiness (joy, love, humor and gratitude)
  • Belief (conviction, confidence)
  • Passion (desire, determination, feelings
  • Patience (endurance)
  • Respect (appreciation, acknowledgment, recognition

 

2. AMMUNITION

  • Meaning (significance)
  • Sense of Purpose (the why, the motivation, objective)
  • Social Relevance (who benefits)

 

3. TOOLS

  • Creativity Ingenuity (envisioning, trying new possibilities)
  • Awareness (self awareness and of our environment/people)
  • Childlike Approach (the love of exploration and discovery)
  • Adaptable Perspective (willing to change)
  • Positive Outlook (yes or why not)
  • Willingness to fail (without risk there is little reward)
  • Connectedness (egoless, authenticity, empathy)

Adaptability and $$$$ for your business

Vital Germaine

Every successful business needs innovation in order to grow and compete in todays faster than ever, changing business climate. Creativity provides a platform upon which to envision tomorrow'g great ideas – be it developing a new and memorable sensory experience for your clients, or identifying new markets, to implementing innovative marketing and sales strategies, or creating defining products that will separate you from your competitors.

The challenge with creativity is that people often claim to have none,  yet we are all creative! The common confusion is people are not artistic so they claim to not be creative. You don't need to be artistic in order to be creative. However, business needs creativity and a workforce invited to explore, experiment, fail, discover and eventually achieve new heights. 

According to Gallup, forward thinking companies that adapt to trends and implement new approaches, stimulating paradigm shifts, experience on average 20% higher profits.

Are you stimulating sales, broadening your business perspective and promoting growth by inspiring innovation and creativity as a part of your corporate culture?
