Excite Your Employees

What excites employees about their organization is the opportunity to get excited about their organization. For instance, employees can get excited when they see authentic leadership that fosters an environment which builds on individual strengths toward a shared goal, encourages tolerance & adaptability, and celebrates achievements in diverse ways. Employees seem to get excited when they have a clear idea about the direction of the organization, the freedom to be curious about different pathways to get there, commitment to sound & respectful decision-making and open communication toward those ends. I know that when I was someone else's employee, it was exciting to make the connection between what I was doing in my role with how the organization was moving forward and making strides toward what we wanted to accomplish.

Thanks to Manolo Santos for sparking this post.
