Your organization is facing pressure to improve operations, increase quality, decrease errors/mistakes,
and you are under the gun to deliver results.

Faced with this kind of critical need for change some managers look inward hoping they can pull a rabbit out of their hats – after all they have 20 years of experience solving business problems; others turn outward hoping a consultant can tell them how to fix things; but the most important resource to turn around these situations might actually be your employees.

Employee engagement is essential.

Employee engagement is the secret weapon behind most truly successful companies. Failing to tap into this power is likely to be a costly mistake. Without their insights into the root causes, without their ideas to fix things, and without their active participation and commitment to implementing these changes, there is little hope for long-term improvement.

Many companies think things are too desperate to commit employee resources to improvement efforts. Managers sometimes say, “Right now, things are so crazy that we just need to right the ship.” However, their impulsive decisions – which met with active employee resistance on all sides – quickly unravel their best efforts. Then, things degenerate even further until the situation truly is hopeless.

What’s needed is a way to focus the key stakeholders on the problems. Employees who understand the crisis, its implications, and their role in turning things around can and will rise to the challenge. They will need some training, tools, and guidance to work effectively in ways that may be unfamiliar to them; yet it’s a role many of them long to play. You need employee engagement systems and leadership to focus and support these employee problem-solving efforts. And, you’ll want to be able to measure the impact to ensure the solutions are working.
