Managing for Employee Engagement
by Patrick Lencioni
A miserable job is not the same as a bad job. A miserable job is one that causes anxiety and the "Sunday blues": those awful feelings of dread and depression. Miserable jobs drain people of their energy, confidence, and self-esteem. Miserable jobs also have a huge impact on an organization, its productivity, turnover, morale - and its bottom line.
According to Patrick Lencioni, author of the bestselling book "The Three Signs of a Miserable Job," there are three underlying factors that are causing what he believes has become an epidemic in today's business world:
- Anonymity: Employees feel unknown or invisible at work
- Irrelevance: Employees sense the work they are doing has no impact
- Immeasurement: Employees are unable to measure their contributions or success
Lencioni points out that while the "Three Signs" are simple - maybe even obvious - most managers fail to satisfy their employees with these fundamentals of a meaningful job. He tackles the topic of misery at work with Managing for Employee Engagement, a powerful new assessment and training workshop that targets and develops the ability of managers to effectively engage, motivate, and retain employees.
