3 Ways to Actually Boost Engagement

Originally posted on Cperky's Blog:

If you can increase the level of engagement in your organization, you’ll likely see the productivity of your workforce rise, too. And almost any organization can foster greater engagement if leaders:

  • Talk about the company’s impact, not just its financial results.  Shareholders care about performance, but employees are more often motivated by the impact their company has on the world.
  • Reward inspirational leadership as much as effective task management.  People who work for inspiring leaders are more committed, satisfied, and productive. Reward managers for raising people’s eyes to the horizon as much as you reward them for holding workers’ noses to the grindstone.

Break Up with Your Mentor If It’s Time to Move On

Originally posted on Cperky's Blog:

A great mentor can do wonders for your career, but if you’ve reached the point where you’re no longer learning from him or the chemistry has fizzled, don’t prolong the relationship. In order to grow, it’s necessary to move on. Maybe your mentor’s skill doesn’t align with where your career is heading, or you just want a mentor who has more time to offer. Start the separation conversation by sharing your appreciation for all of his time and effort. Detail everything you’ve learned from him and explain how those skills will continue to help you. Be honest and transparent about why your future plans necessitate a shift, and frame it considerately: “Given my change in focus, I wonder if getting together regularly is the best use of your time.” Leave the door open for possible future collaborations, and offer any assistance to return the kindness and help he’s given you.
