There was a manager who, when asked how many people worked at his company, replied, "About half."
This story highlights a sad and costly reality. A lot of people are only turning up at work because they need the money and perhaps for some social contact.
When surveys repeatedly show that the majority of people don't particularly enjoy their work, it tells business owners and leaders that they have some work of their own to do ...
(Well, only if they want to attract and retain talent, and have teams of motivated, innovative and productive people!)
First, we must recognise why people may be less engaged.
Sometimes it is personal (e.g. an individual is simply in the wrong kind of job or organisation for them).
More often, it is related to communication and leadership.
Busy leaders can easily lose touch with the aspirations, frustrations and potential contributions of their people.
This can be very costly in terms of lost talent, innovation and productivity.

I worked with Peter as a business coach/mentor in Australia while at Origin Energy many years ago. His process of self-reflection, discussion and the implementation (and follow-up) of a personal action plan achieves the desired results. Peter's insight and systematic approach to identifying issues that impede a person's professional development have helped me deal with people and situations more effectively. I certainly recommend Peter to people looking to develop confidence and push through their comfort zone.
