How to Get 5 Times the Employee Engagement You Have Now

Digital transformation leaders are called to lead the process of digital transformation in their organizations, leading those organizations into the digital age as they transform both their business, and the people in their organizations.

Every organization already experienced a tremendous level of change during the last 10-15 years. Implementing change in organizations around the world has brought many organization with an employee engagement level this year 2016 down equal to 32% in the United States of America and 13% worldwide, according to research by Gallup.

Though many solutions have been made available on the market to counter these negative trends, the reality is that most organizations are experiencing some level of employee disengagement. The main reason is that several generations were educated for the industrial era, with expectations different than the actual situation in the digital era. As a result, in the market place, you will find individuals experiencing one or more of the following:

  • Individuals who are not in alignment with who they are and what they want to do and are feeling lost.
  • Individuals whose expectations of life is different from their actual lives.
  • Those who have much potential but are held back by their fear and mind programming.
  • Those who know of their purpose and are searching for ways to get involved in their own mission and make a difference.
  • Those who are holding fearfully to what they have and perceived as security in a time when everything is changing.

Outside of the organizations, you’ll find investors and other stakeholders counting on you to bring the best return on their investment in your organization in a transitional and questionable global economy.

What about customers? They have expectations from you as well, especially the faithful ones and for your organization’s or business’ continuous success you’d better not deceive them

For each individual, regardless of their position, what they don’t like is uncertainty. As a Digital Transformation Leader, you are seen as the change leader and whomever says change, also says uncertainty.  So there is just one thing that they expect from you to start with: Trust!

Can they trust you to bring them to something that could improve their lives? Can you make their organization more successful with your changes?  Can they trust you so that they don’t lose what they have; be it their comfort or position? Seriously, can they trust you with their future, and their family’s future, at all? This is why it’s important to develop your leadership skills and emotional intelligence continuously.
