In a recent survey, only 18% of respondents reported full engagement at work, 17% expressed high resilience, and merely 14% placed trust in their senior and team leaders.

The levels of engagement and resilience are a source of concern, particularly in the context of Organizational Change Management and the development of transformational capabilities among senior and middle management. 

According to the article โ€œDesigning Work That People Loveโ€ by Marcus Buckingham, organizations are adopting three fundamental principles to cultivate work that people genuinely love.

While the ratio of one leader to a large group of team members might make financial sense on a balance sheet, it often doesn’t align with the need to build trust within a team.

Research demonstrates that workers can find passion in unexpected places. For instance, a manufacturing worker may find their passion in figuring out the โ€œpersonalityโ€ of each machine they operate. Within a team, each person’s interests and passions can combine with those of others to create something greater than any individual could achieve alone.

Weekly check-ins between employees and team leaders as a core ritual at work are pivotal. These check-ins should not be rescheduled for other pressing needs, nor should they focus on a mere list of tasks to be completed. Instead, they should serve as opportunities for engagement and support.

If leaders aim to foster high-performing, engaged, and resilient employees who remain committed to the organization, they must deliberately assist them in finding joy in their daily tasks.

At ValueInfinity, we help executives build high-performing teams that create an environment where teams can envision their goals, individuals can leverage their strengths and passions, and leaders provide the necessary support for excellence to thrive.
