Employee Engagement: Energetic Strengths

Employee Engagement: Strong Energy

The pyramid of employee engagement offers a model of the 10 blocks of employee engagement. Here is a link to a 50 page booklet on the pyramid. There are 10 posts in this series. To learn more with a chance to be interactive on strengths and engagement plan to attend an educational workshop in London on the importance of strengths for employee engagement and a fusion of the pyramid of employee engagement with a strength-based approach to work.

Strong Energy for Engagement

The raw material of engagement is energy. Jane Dutton from the Positive Organizational Scholarship organization has demonstrated that the key to energize organizations is frequent high quality connections between people connected to the organization such as employees, suppliers, and customers. Three of my strengths, empathy, developing others, and leadership all contribute to engaging in these type of connections. My strengths draw me towards these relationships and in turn, these relationships enhance my overall energy for work.

To assess the energy you and others have for work, I encourage you to ask a great energy question posed by Donald Graves in the Energy to Teach: What gives you energy, what takes it away and what for you is a waste of time?

Remember to fuel energy as your renewable resource for engagement.
