The people have spoken with their engagement and their feet. What’s been called the Great Resignation (aka the Great Disengagement) is a reality and I think it’s something very different … I call it the Great Reassessment. Millions of people are choosing not to work; not because of favorable unemployment benefits but because they’ve reassessed work and life, they’re burned out and / or they’re unhappy with the ways they were treated during the pandemic. While a large percentage of these reassessing workers are in certain industries, the message is the same across industries. In fact, they’re saying that 41% of people are looking for another job.
At the same time, thousands of organizations are all navigating the same uncertain waters of remote work, hybrid work and return to work. The question is not whether the playing field has changed but what your organization is doing about this fundamental shift (the Great Reassessment) in the minds and hearts of the workforce. The question is whether your organization is meeting the Great Reassessment with your own reassessment of work, culture, team, values and engagement.
We all talk about it – wanting a more engaged and empowered team – but what are you doing differently to achieve this desired outcome? In this shifting environment, so called soft skills (what Jeff calls impact skills) have become a critical element for building and developing people and teams who consistently and predictably execute. While technical skills and capabilities, and processes and systems are still important, it’s critical for your team members to develop business acumen, improve communication and engagement skills, and deliver and receive consistent feedback. It’s time for a shift — a shift in your leadership, management and communication to engage and empower your team to achieve more and impact more. A shift from doing to being. A shift from managing to creating. A shift from telling to asking. A shift from delegating to empowering. A shift from outcomes to impact. Welcome to The Team Shift!
