Emotionally intelligent leadership styles for employee engagement
Leadership styles directly impact employee engagement, culture and business productivity.
With 20% of Australian workers actively disengaged from their work and a further 62% in the drone zone the cost to the Australian economy is $31.5 billion per year. Most businesses have only 18% of workers fully engaged, loyal and productive.
There is an ongoing challenge for leaders to continually improve productivity and staff retention. This can be achieved by maximising the engagement of their workforce.
While rational engagement of workers is improved by material incentives, even greater productivity is achieved by engaging the hearts of people as well as their head. If you emotionally engaged workers they are four times more productive.
Emotional engagement comes when a person has a purpose in their role. A person becomes emotionally engaged when they derive meaning from their work and they are recognised, and when they are shown appreciation for their contribution to the business.
Leadership style directly impacts worker engagement. How long an employee stays and how productive they are is dependant on the relationship they have with their manager.
