Employee engagement is what will take you and your team from good to great.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

One of the biggest challenges leaders face is cultivating employee engagement. How do we get our people to care?

It may take a mindset shift on your part (spoiler alert: as a leader you are not responsible for everyone’s tasks. You are responsible to get your team to want to be responsible.)

Employee Engagement is How You Go From Good to Great

When your team is invested in your work, many positive things take shape. A sense of lightness and sure-footedness sets in because the workload and responsibility are truly shared.

This workload ranges from being diligent and dedicated to a project to picking up trash off the ground, to coming in with a good attitude. When people are behaving this way, it means they are invested, the work is a part of who they are. This is when new possibilities and accomplishments are realized.
