We’ve been working with business owners and c-level executives for quite some time. On top of the pyramid the vision and mission of the company is formed. While it is inspiring to listen to the bold ideas and beliefs of these leaders, I found a target group more in need of help.
Let’s face the facts: Employee engagement is at an all-time low. Only 13% of employees says to be engaged.
Everybody is looking for that one special job they would love to do. Actually I think that this is the reasons why so many people are not committed to what they do. People have to high expectations of how companies should make them happy, while they actually should start challenging themselves.
Here is a reminder (which is also true for your dream company): other people can’t decide on what you like and what you don’t like. If you’re never expressing yourself, then how can others fill it in for you.
The bigger concern is: do you even know?
Do you spend time thinking about who you are and what you stand for?
Who you are, has everything to do with your daily actions and your focus. What makes you get up in the morning? Why do you do the things you do? What do other people appreciate you for? What subjects do you like to talk about?
Once you start to get a clear image of what it is… it will guide you in every choice and action you take.
