Get involved and lead by example....


Everyone talks about having engaged employees, as though that’s something they alone are responsible for. If you want your employees to be engaged then you should lead by example. It’s okay for you to withhold your opinions and ideas in order to get theirs, but don’t let them suspect that you’re impartial: you’re allowed to have them as long as those don’t dampen theirs. It’s okay for you to be reserved and professional, but don’t let that be taken as indifference: if you want them to care enough to be engaged then they have to see the same in you.  And it’s okay to delegate, but make sure you know what they’re doing, why it’s important, and how they’re performing: if you’re not interested, why should they be. Everyone must be responsible enough to know all they need to be effective, and that starts with you. Be engaged and inspire your employees to be the same today
