Disengaged at work

Disengaged at work

When people feel psychologically unsafe or undervalued at work, they often protest quietly and unconsciously. They may stop trying to work hard or may subtly undermine leadership. They may become disengaged at a great cost to the global economy.

If you're a leader and want to avoid walkouts or checkouts before they happen, you can do three things.

Unblock communication

Walkouts and checkouts happen when employees don't feel heard, respected or considered. Some people close down and shut off when they feel like they don't belong or are unimportant.

Managers can avoid this pitfall by frequently inviting people to speak up at work. These invitations should be a routine part of our engagement with each other.

Be responsive

Sometimes, employees will raise issues that leader's don't agree with. At that moment, leaders can choose what kind of culture they will have.

At a minimum, we can have a dialogue. We can try to find some common ground. If that is not possible:

  • Employees can choose to leave the company.
  • They can continue to do a good job and wait to discuss the problem another time.
  • They can respectfully acknowledge their differences and agree to keep working on the issue.

Aim higher

Just trying to avoid checkouts and walkouts is setting a low bar. We can strive for more by inviting people to bring their whole selves to work. We are more than the sum of our resumes.

When everyone can bring the entirety of life experiences, they can increase what they have to offer.

How to start unblocking communication

On Monday morning, talk to ten different people at your organisation and ask them in person or online:

"What don't we talk about around here that we should be talking about?"

You may get awkward silence at first, but later people will probably come back to you with an answer. By asking this question, you have created an openness to keep asking questions.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
