Last time we talked about the benefits of creating a role and outcome statement for employees. Now let's talk about how to do it. Only 60% of U.S. employees strongly agree that they know what is expected of them at work, which leaves 40% guessing and the engagement level plummeting.
As I shared in "Giving Employees A Home," only “6 in 10 U.S. employees strongly agree that they know what is expected of them at work,” which drives disengagement in the American workforce (Gallup). Since clear expectations are critical for employees, our company has established a unique role and outcome statement for each position. Everyone from the CEO to the newest employee can access each other’s role and outcome statements.
The CliftonStrengths Summit has come and gone (sad) and we’ll have to wait for June 2019 for the next one. Since it was a strengths summit, I would be remiss if I didn’t reflect on how I used my strengths at the event itself.
The CliftonStrengths Summit is almost upon us. This will be my third one, and it’s always a bit magical for me, starting with stellar keynote sessions, awesome breakout sessions, plenty of networking opportunities, and memorable closing sessions.
We're wrapping up our three-part series of snapshots into the professional coach survey we recently conducted. First we talked about the coach by covering topics like the coach persona, stages of the coaching field, and the most important goal for 2018. Then we talked about coaching sessions with topics like amount of sessions per month, fee per session, and customer impressions.
We've been discussing the results of our survey of professional coaches and coaching students. Before we talked about the coach. Next we'll talk about marketing. Today we're talking about coaching sessions, fees, and customer impressions.
In January, we conducted a survey to understand the mindsets and behaviors of professional coaches and coaching students as they headed into 2018. The data provides insights into their top goals, obstacles in getting new clients, marketing tactics, business operations, and branding. Since we're half-way throught the year, we thought we'd revisit the results.
Have you ever been so conflicted you felt at war with yourself? You know you have a choice to make, but making the current choice freezes you in indecision. Whether you know it or not, this battle is being waged between the strongest parts of you—your core values. They're yanking at one another, like two animals playing tug-o-war.
The Importance Of Work-Life Balance
As entrepreneurs, whеn we achieve a healthy balance between wоrk and our реrѕоnаl lіfе, our business also bеnеfіtѕ. Here are a few оf the аdvаntаgеѕ of reaching work/life balance:
Sometimes when my family is getting ready for the day, I’m told to “dial it down.” Not all of them appreciate my happy dance while they’re eating their oatmeal. At 6:30 AM, they don’t all share my enthusiasm for all the exciting things that could happen that day. For them, getting out the door on time is enough. That’s alright, dialing it down is fun, too.
