Employee engagement and job satisfaction is Key

All organizations face turnover, disengagement, and competition more than ever. This is costly for organizations. Studies show, an employee's relationship with their direct manager is the most important determinant to employee satisfaction, more than pay, benefits, perks and work-life balance.Some organizations are fighting to stay alive while others are thriving. What is the difference? The key is the way employers are engaging employees.

Employers who have a strong people strategy seldom have difficulty finding people,
experience low turnover and retain their top talent.

Are you fighting to stay alive? 

Do you desire growth at the next level?


To cultivate a strong team leaders must foster a culture of engagement. When employees feel emotionally connected to their work and the organization, they thrive. This is accomplished by building trust through leaders providing ongoing feedback and recognition, fostering open and honest communication, mining for and uncovering overlooked conflict, creating a sense of commitment, establishing clear expectations and goals, as well as promoting accountability focused on results. When organizations focus on these simple concepts they succeed easier and faster with surging productivity. 

Employees tend to stay in jobs longer when employers: 

  • Take an interest in employees as people
  • Convey meaning and purpose in their job 
  • Provide Measurable benchmarks for growth and development

For High performance Teams

Erraticating Dysfunction is Key

Five Dysfunctions of a Team

Addressing the five dysfunctions of a team,  first identified by Patrick Lencioni, is essential for achieving high performance and success in any organization. Failure to address these dysfunctions can result in poor teamwork, decreased productivity, and low morale. 

By addressing these dysfunctions, teams can improve communication, build trust, increase accountability, and ultimately achieve better results. Effective leadership, clear communication, and a commitment to continuous improvement are key to building a strong, high-performing team.

Stages of Team Development 

 Stages are not linear and teams can revisit previous stages. Moreover, some groups may not pass through all of these stages, and employee turnover often cause teams to return to storming.
Many teams unfortunately never reach the final stage of high performance.


This is the initial stage team members are on their best behavior. Members don't know the boundaries are just getting to know each other and are establishing a sense of direction & purpose. 


This second stage team members are starting to jockey for position. Tension and conflict arise among team members, as they begin to establish dominance & identify goals and roles.


In this stage, team members begin to trust each other, communicate more clearly, establish behavioral boundaries  and establish clear roles & goals and work more effectively.


A fully functional Team. Members are Committed to results. they communicate well, engage in healthy conflict, they are accountable & work together towards a common goal.
