Talk2Us, we can assist you in understanding your current levels of engagement. We can develop practices for your leadership to adopt that will build enduring relationship, create a culture of engagement, and enhance your business performance.

Engagement is a practice that generates participation: it is a process which is connected, involved and energised. The sought-after outcome of engagement is to achieve a mutually prescribed purpose. While the process is structured, it is open and flexible, and delivers results in an emergent quality shared between and among persons around content of mutual interest, and a common purpose.

What engagement is not  – it isn’t a didactic one-way conversation, where participants are told by an authority what the outcome is or will be; it is not acceptance nor agreement. It is not an imposition of one view over another. Even when an outcome is predicted, engagement allows for parties to be heard in a way that validates their protest or support.

The benefits of an engaged workforce

In the business context, the practice of engagement  is about creating opportunities for employees to connect  with their colleagues, managers and the wider organisation. The more connected employees feel, the more discretionary effort they’ll offer, resulting in improved business performance. The less connected employees feel the greater their relationship with the people in the business is compromised, and therefore the less committed, they’ll be less likely to achieve a common purpose.

Building relationships

Different relationships require different levels of engagement. Stronger, enduring relationships can withstand greater obstacles. In organisations, the levels of engagement are determined by the type of relationships required between individuals and their leadership teams. There is no right or wrong - just what is appropriate, in order to achieve a common purpose.
