What is employee engagement
Employee engagement is a systematic approach, when every employee of the organization is committed to organizational goals, vision, values and ready to contribute to organizational success with full effort. The employee feels emotional connection and mutual respect with the organization.
The reasons responsible for low/ high employee engagement are-
Choosing the manager- Choosing the right manager is the most important step in enhancing the productivity. If the wrong person is chosen as a manager, he will take poor decisions affecting employee productivity and also emotionally disconnecting them in the workplace.
Competitive business environment- To meet the competition, every organization is rapidly entering into different ventures to stay in existence and launching new product and services to gain an edge over competitors.
So, sometimes the leader or manager puts extra burden of employee and also compromise with the self esteem. This results into poor employee engagement resulting in poor results. Performance is derived from motivation.
Where does business coaching come into play?
The only job of a business coach is to form a harmonious relationship between the leader and the staff and help the leader in bringing clarity in thoughts , enhancing self awareness and identifying the purpose and goals.
The coach tends to focus on the performance issues and find out the core reason behind the friction. It can prove to be a game changer, if the strategies are applied well. Encourage the management and the employees have a formal dialogue and discuss the issues with the open heart. Highlight the bullet points affecting their performance and engagement.
Business coaching is not a panacea, but can open the flood gates between the two parties through communication and discussion.
