Being a leader comes with a lot of responsibilities. One of them being:  how do you keep your employees feeling engaged and motivated?

Here is a way we have found to further engage your employees, particularly if you have meetings or trainings.

At the beginning of every meeting, start by asking each employee to take 20-30 seconds to talk about what they are excited about right now. It could be a win they’ve recently had or progress that they’ve made at either work or in their personal life.

Doing this, will enhance your leadership, increase engagement and create enthusiasm within the company.

If you found this idea helpful, please share it with somebody that’s a fellow business owner. We’d love to hear back from you if you have any comments about this as well. To learn more about this or other ways to have a great meeting, schedule a free consultation or you can also subscribe to our YouTube channel.

Make it a great day!

Do you know how to start your meetings with wins so that everyone will want to attend your next meeting (be it virtual or in person) and be excited about it??

As we work with clients, one of the things we are seeing is that they’re having a lot of meetings and/or doing a lot of strategizing. They’re meeting with their team all the time. Those meetings tend to be a real drain, not only for you as the owner or manager, but also for the team. So our tip for you today is an idea that can help stimulate and make meetings much more productive so that you can get a greater result out of them.

Here’s the simple tip that you can add to each meeting at the very beginning once everybody is there. This has nothing to do with your agenda or the project that you’re working on, nor does it have to do with what you want to talk about.

Start your meetings with everybody in the group taking 30 seconds and sharing what they’re most excited about in their life right now.

For example, it could be at work, it could be personal, it could be family related, it could be a recreation or whatever they’re doing — but give everybody a chance to do this and share. What you’ll find is that mentally by doing this, their engagement will increase 10 times just because now they’re talking and thinking about something that they’re truly engaged in. There’s energy around this and it will then transfer on into what you’re talking about in your meeting. They’ll have this positive mindset and be ready for the meeting.

So this is how we change meetings from being basically the “death of a business” to something that people look forward to! Recognize and let people acknowledge the “wins” in their life. Because if you do this at every meeting, as you go on, people will come with the anticipation of sharing what they just did. Maybe someone will say, “Oh, I want to share with everyone that I just finished my first half marathon” or, “I just did this…” and they will say what they are excited about. This is how to change meetings from being this thing that people dread and they think are wasted time killers to making them productive, exciting and a great experience.

If you found this idea helpful, please share it with somebody that’s a fellow business owner. We’d love to hear back from you if you have any comments about this as well.

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.
