What makes employees stay with a company or organization for a long time?

As we’re using The Dream Employee process with companies, we’ve discovered two things that make people stay.

When we ask someone who’s been with an organization 5, 10, 15, 20, even 30 years, why they have been there so long, we consistently hear the same answer.

It is because they feel acknowledged and appreciated.

  1. They are acknowledged for the value and contribution they bring to the business. 
  2. They are also told how much they are appreciated for the great job they are doing. 

As a leader, manager, CEO, or business owner if you remember to do these two things — ACKNOWLEDGE and APPRECIATE your employees — it will extend the life of your employees!!

If you have any comments or thoughts on this, let me know.

Do you have an employee engagement strategy?  If so, how are you following through on it and how do you know if it’s working?

Employee engagement is an area that we specialize in and are passionate about. We have employee engagement tools to help you.

One of our processes is called The Dream Employee. This tool is a great way to find out what motivates your employees. By going through a simple questioning process with each one of your team members at your company on a monthly basis, you can learn how to help, support and encourage them to achieve their own personal goals and dreams.

When you begin to know your employees on a personal level, it helps them to see the connection between their goal or dream and their work that they are doing in your company. It creates collaboration and helps them make the connection between their personal life and their work. It also helps with retention, motivation and engagement. They realize that you really care about them as a person.

When people are achieving their own personal goals or dreams, they are internally motivated. You don’t have to do all the motivating every day, every month or every quarter.

If you’ve been out there for a while trying to figure out how to improve your employee engagement and nothing is working, reach out to us for a free consultation. We will give you a free demonstration of how The Dream Employee works. The Dream Employee program is one that can be maintained and tracked and has been getting transformational results with our clients.

As the owner, manager, CEO or entrepreneur, what is your strategy to improve your employee engagement? What are you doing? Do you even have a strategy? If so, how are you following through on it and how do you know if it’s improving? How are you tracking that or are you even doing this at all? Maybe you are at a point where you’ve tried a bunch of different things and nothing’s really gotten results or helped with the engagement level.

This is an area that we specialize in.

We not only work in this area but we are passionate about it! We have employee engagement tools to help you do this too.

If you’re looking for a process or program that you can install, we have one that can be maintained, tracked and you will see transformational results happening in your employees’ engagement.

We do this through a process we call The Dream Employee which is based on every individual getting the engagement that they need as they work for your company. As we take them through the process within your company, within your culture, you can see the progress of the engagement and how the whole program works. So if you’ve been out there and you’ve had some failures or tried some things that haven’t worked, and you’re like, okay, what do I do now? Or you’re just kind of treading water, so to speak, reach out to us. We’d love to give you a free demonstration of how The Dream Employee works. We can help you to get into a process that is ongoing, building and supportive so you’re not holding everything. You do everything yourself, but we can partner with you to provide that support. So, reach out to us.

Also, it’d be great if this has been helpful or you know somebody that needs this kind of help, share this with them. We’ve also got a YouTube channel you can subscribe to if you would like to follow us there. Make it a great day.

After working with a lot of organizations and companies, I’ve found out that the greatest untapped resource or asset in every business or organization is the employee and the potential of the employee.

It’s important for the employee to understand that there is a connection between the work or job that they’re doing and how they can achieve their own dreams and goals. If they see a connection between their job as a vehicle to achieve their own personal goals and if you can help them connect, support and encourage their goals, then they come to work ready to go — or, as we like to say, they come to work with their batteries fully charged! They see the connection and purpose of their work and how it wins for the company and how it’s also a win for them too.

So, the greatest untapped resource for pretty much every business is the employee. We go into companies and help them to see this and show them what role the company can play in helping their employees achieve their own personal hopes and dreams. This in turn, helps the company be successful going forward.

Please give us your comments if you have any thoughts on this. We’d love to hear from you. If you’d like to talk about how we help people implement this into their business, reach out and schedule a free catalytic conversation at Confidence Coach.

What makes someone stay with a company or organization for a long time? As we’re doing The Dream Employee process with companies (both public and private), one of the things we’re learning and figuring out is what makes people stay.

We are finding as we interview people and take them through The Dream Employee process, that when we see someone who’s been with an organization 5, 10, 15, 20, even 30 years, and we ask them why they have been there so long, we consistently hear the reason is because they feel acknowledged.

They are acknowledged, first of all, for the work that they’re doing and the contribution they’re making in the business.

And number two, they’re appreciated for what they’ve done — their contribution, the value that they’re bringing to the company or the organization.

So as a leader, manager, CEO, or business owner,i f you can remember those two things — ACKNOWLEDGE and APPRECIATE your employees — it will extend the life of really good employees!!

That’s our thought for today. If you have any comments or thoughts on this, let me know. Make it a great day and we’ll talk to you soon.

employee engagement

So you have employees. Congratulations!

Now, let me ask you a serious question: Do you know the most profit-making task those employees could be doing in your business today? Do you know how much time they’re actually spending on that profit-making task? Do you have a system in order to track whether or not they’re doing profit-making work? Do you have a filter to know whether or not the time they’re spending is actually profitable? Are there things that could be eliminated? Are there things that could be delegated? Some tasks are cheaper when outsourced, and your employees will be happier for it. Some can even be automated, and your employees left to more important, engaging work. Some, on the other hand, can (and should) be put off for another quarter or two.

How much would just one hour of your employees saved time be worth to you in a month? In a year? That’s an investment that will compound. In our executive coaching and management program, we help people discover how to save a million dollars in one hour. If this could help you, reach out to us. The solution is only 60 minutes away, and this expert consult is available for free, right now.

Convert your wasted time to profitable time.

dream employee; executive coaching

When we do executive coaching, it’s clear that every CEO, business owner, or entrepreneur comes to us with the dream to build something. That’s the mission that drives companies from a kitchen table to a billion-dollar empire. Unfortunately, there’s one thing almost everyone forgets. It’s the reason why disengagement is up to 80% and turnover is the highest it’s been in decades: We forget that our companies are made up of people.

Each of those people has a dream, right? Everyone has hopes outside of work. But those hopes and dreams are often seen as liabilities to mitigate instead of assets to leverage. But think about this: If I could connect my job in accounting with my dream of learning to ski, how much more would I put into my job? If I knew my company was supportive of my dreams, how much more committed would I be to that company?

We train business owners to ask the question: What are your hopes, dreams, and aspirations? Tell your employees, show them, that you actually care about this. It’s not about spending money, although if there’s budget for it that investment can go a long way — it’s about showing support. When they run that marathon, maybe you make a fun video about it and send that out to customers and employees to celebrate their accomplishment. Show them that you want to celebrate with them, because you care about their dreams.

This isn’t just about being nice. When people are in the process of achieving their dreams, that’s where real productivity happens — that’s where growth and creativity and connection happens. A bonus can’t do that! A bonus can’t motivate your employees longer than a week. A bonus can’t drive connection amongst your team. As an employer, you can’t compete in this world anymore with just a paycheck. Employees want to live for a purpose, and if you can help give that to them you’ll have the most motivated team of employees you could dream of. There’s nothing like purpose to drive your team towards real productivity and customer connection.

Everyone has to live and work in their own greatness. If you can harness and build that up, you can make a huge impact on your team — and together, you’ll have an even bigger impact on the world.
