Welcome to Episode 246 of Building My Legacy
In her continuing discussion with host Steve Harper on the Podcast Business News Network, Lois Sonstegard talks about how today companies need a breath of fresh air — to change some of the discouragement and overwhelming stress into a new approach where employees are enthused and companies continue to grow.
Research shows that today only 24% of employees trust their leaders and that 82% of Gen Zers are “quiet quitters.” But, as Lois explains, we don’t have to be in this position. We can move in a very different direction. We can get back to employees being engaged so that we have innovation, creativity and productivity — the foundation of a successful business.
So if you want to know:
- How to avoid building a “bland culture” where employees are afraid to ask questions
- Why mistakes aren’t bad because they can help you build
- The danger of silos within an organization and only consulting with “the experts”
- What we can learn from the TV show, “Who Wants to be a Millionaire?”
- About the importance of employees knowing that, when they show up for work, it makes a difference
