Who Cares Wins!
Peter A Hunter
What about creation of value as a more engaging idea than simply profit? Profit feels rather cold, hard and functional to me. It feels unidirectional. The company profits from its employees endeavours. How about considering the creation of value instead? Value is still linked to price and therefore conencted to profit, and it has a two way element to it. Just as the buyer reveals what he is willing to pay for something, so too does the seller reveal what it costs him to give up the something.
I find value a much more compelling, binding, reciprocal proposition than profit.
Good point Doug,
Trade is an exchange of value. People enable people. The buyer enables the seller to do something (with the money handed over). The seller enables the buyer to do something by selling what ever it is. In all organisations value has to be created. Just need to turn this into a compelling title. I am not sure the word is a direct replacement in Richard's suggestion - it probably needs a spot more creative thinking!
The cost of disengagement - Most employees' quit their jobs and leave, disenchanted/ disengaged employees' quit their jobs and stay on.
Leadership - Success in leadership, ties to people skills, hardwork, and leadership abilities.
Making the important connection between strategy and engagement:
'Strategy without execution is pointless. Execution without engagement is impossible.'
Or a fun approach:
'The Good, The Bad & The Disengaged' Sets you up nicely to explain the financial downside of disengaged employees.
I do a presentation with similar content, titled, "Are You Budgeting for the Cost of [dis]Engagement?"
Interesting…why do we perceive a need to sugar-coat the cost of disengagement, put a positive spin on it, use a cute metaphor if there is real cost involved?
Possibly because it’s not a line item, nobody owns it?
Kellie and Kristen’s back-to-back comments nail it for me: the true cost of disengagement is what we’re talking about, and part of the issue is that no one budgets for that cost.
