Truth You Can Act On:

  1. Don’t Assume. Go and have the conversation to help you understand how your employees feel about your company. Seek first to understand then promptly respond. It’s easy to assume everyone is engaged when there are no apparent conflicts. Avoid this mistake by asking questions, seeking out conversations, and continually identifying opportunities for improvement.
  2. Leverage Personal Touch. Go beyond using technology to engage with your team. The workforce is becoming more and more remote which means adding personal touches is even more critical. Technology is necessary but never underestimate the power of face-to-face interaction. As leaders, we need to seek out opportunities to connect personally.
  3. Solicit Feedback. Asking for feedback should be done regularly not just annually. By surveying and asking for feedback, you can improve your culture. Employees notice when their feedback gets implemented. You can’t improve anything if you’re not sure what’s wrong.
  4. Innovate with Your Team. Seek out opportunities to connect and innovate with your team by going off-site. The best ideas stem from your employees.
