    To get the most out of your staff they have to feel they are valued, clear in their responsibilities, they must know that they fit the company and the team,they must be supported by their manager with regular performance feedback, and they must be inspired by their immediate Manager. In fact we know for sure the main reason good employees leave their employer is directly related to how they are managed by their immediate manager. So, perhaps we should start looking at how employees are being managed vs. trying to squeeze more work out of them!

    The Corporate Leadership Council says emotional engagement increases productivity up to four times more than only rational engagement. To do so, you need to make sure their core feeling needs are met – as “Ron” says, they feel valued, they feel clarity, they feel an emotional fit, they feel supported and backed, and they are inspired by what they do.

    Getting the most from your staff does not need to be complicated. Create an environment where creative thinking is rewarded and be clear about your companies goals. When employees understand why things are being done and have the opportunity to voice concerns, you get an engaged team where everyone contributes to the overall success of an organization and not personal agendas. That fosters an environment of loyal employees who go the extra mile because they are connected on a deeper level than a paycheque.
