Engaged Employees

July 18, 2017 // R. Shawn McBride // No Comments »

R. Shawn McBride recently spoke about motivating employees.

Hey, folks, it’s Shawn here with you, and I want to talk to you about a real issue. If you’re a business owner or an HR manager, you’re probably pulling your hair out, wondering “How do I deal with all these employee issues?” and “Employees are not motivated, “and they don’t feel engaged,” and if you look at the surveys, Gallup tells us that’s definitely the case, right? Only about 30-some percent of U.S. employees are actively engaged at work. Most are disengaged. Some actually want to go against their employers, so we have a real crisis point in American business, but how do we get employees engaged? How do we get them to do more? We gotta create something that’s in their self-interest. We gotta create a win-win. We’ve got to get those employees wanting to come to work, right? Does this sound like something you’re dealing with?

How do you get more and more of your employees to want to come to work, to want to do more, to do the things that need to be done in your business to really grow and to have exceptional performance? Well, this is what I’ve come up with. After many, many years of working with The Three Laws of Empowerment for High Growth Companies, motivated business owners and seeing what they do great and how they’re executing on their plans, I’ve come up with principles that can be applied within an organization to get the employees engaged, talking about their plans, their dreams, executing on the things they want to do, which is going to create opportunity for everybody. When the employee’s engaged and working a plan and they see the big picture, we have an opportunity to get them really, really motivated, and great things happen for the employer.

Now, this is not for every employer, because it’s risky. You’re telling employees to take control of their life and their dreams. You may have some employees in your organization who figure out their life and their dream is not to work for you, but you know what? Cheaper to replace them now than to have them drag on your organization for a long time, and some of your employees, in fact, many of your employees that see this message are going to become more motivated, and they’re going to want to do more, and they’re going to see how benefiting you and the organization is going to help them and their life and their dream.

We’re really creating a win-win. Everybody’s rowing the same direction, so if you’re that HR manager, that business owner, and you’re struggling, and you’re trying to figure out “How do I do more?” “How do I build my business?” The Three Laws of Empowerment for High Growth Companies is really going to be your answer. It is a way to shake up the organization. Audiences love it. The rave reviews have come in. People have said it really causes them to think differently, and I want to work with you and your organization to make people think differently, whether it’s part of your sales training seminar that you have, your annual corporate retreat, or whether it’s coaching or training with your groups and organizations, we can work out something that works for you.
