Engagement At Work

Engagement At Work

Engagement is a multifactorial dynamic that should be considered both in ourselves as well as within management. Very few people lose their jobs because of lack of skills or education, the cause is usually related to deficiencies in behaviors—the intangibles—that are not consistent with the company's culture.

Understanding your personal intrinsic motivators acts as a personal compass to locate and maintain the ideal job that enhances and leverages your skills, interests, and talents. It is an important step in order to reach high levels of engagement as an employee.

Pitfalls to Avoid

Pitfalls to Avoid

Engagement is not a static thing, it’s a revolving process and at least 50% of engagement lies within ourselves.

  • The first pitfall is deciding that what you know now is enough. Given the state of technological changes, this belief is extremely self-limiting.
  • The second pitfall is becoming too reliant on your wage to survive. If you are disengaged, make sure you have the funds to survive being let go.
  • The third pitfall is being complacent, if you are disengaged don’t become the victim and blame the boss, the company, or the situation, you need to take action for your own engagement.

The Potential To Be Managerial

The Potential To Be Managerial

Even if you are just starting in a low position, take a managerial role in your job and see that things are done as they are supposed to be done, hold people to account, even your superiors.

  • Stick to timelines and follow up with agendas.
  • Treat people with respect, don’t “suck up” to your superiors and never condescend.
  • This includes managing yourself: know your roles and responsibilities, but also know how to step up and take on work outside of your immediate responsibilities.
