Where Does Employee Engagement Come From?

In our recent interview at Exploring Forward-Thinking Workplaces™, I was intrigued by something Susan Taylor, Managing Partner at Generon International said:

“Leaders have blindly bought into this idea that employee engagement and happiness come from what happens inside the office. When in fact—engagement and happiness come from what happens inside the employee. “

Why do I think this is intriguing?

Because it aligns with my experience.

A few years back I reached a point where I found the status quo in the workplace was no longer tolerable. 

I made a commitment to myself to have an impact on changing this. What I didn’t expect was that it would change me from the inside out. 

What I discovered and what Susan also talks about and others have commented on is this:

“It’s not about putting the onus on the leaders who run these organizations — but also onto ourselves. We need to make a commitment to change ourselves and should be held accountable for that.”

Please take 5 minutes to check out our interview with Susan and let us know what you think.
