Turn resistance to feedback into enthusiastic support by providing leaders with simple yet powerful ways to connect with employees.
It can be difficult to know how to translate engagement survey feedback into action, and senior leaders may have limited opportunities or time to interact with employees.
Senior leaders may be unaware of their impact on engagement or resistant to feedback, discounting their influence as inaccurate or taking criticism personally.
What employees want from senior leaders is actually quite simple: they want to be informed, have the opportunity to interact with their leaders, and be involved in decisions that affect their work life.
Inspiration is the natural outcome of sharing rationale for decisions, acting on feedback, and building trust with employees.
Increased interaction can be emotionally demanding for senior leaders and may be uncomfortable for employees at first. However, the organizational benefits of employee engagement outweigh any initial discomfort.
