High achievers typically seek a career that maximizes their sense of involvement, satisfaction, effectiveness, motivation, and accomplishment. Such a career requires the active engagement of you, the boss. So where do you begin?
- Start by ensuring your employees are using their personal strengths and have a sense of accountability for their projects.
- Align their personal goals with the company’s mission.
- Be sure your star performers have adequate challenges that are not only personally interesting and worthwhile, but also require a satisfying use of mental agility.
- Set clear expectations and provide ongoing feedback and coaching, always focusing on the positive.
At the end of the day, your fully engaged employees will be more loyal, and two and a half times more likely to be top performers (according to a Watson Wyatt research report).
