My previous managers in Pfizer and Komag have also demonstrated such management style. They have also inflenced my current way of managing employee - strength based, no fear, appreciation and competency development.
Gallup research has proven that the best way to develop people -- and net the greatest return on investment -- is to identify the ways in which they most naturally think, feel, and behave as unique individuals, then build upon those talents to create strength, the ability to provide consistent, near-perfect performance in a specific task. Gallup strengths consultants are leading-edge specialists dedicated to closely partnering with organizations to align vital human resource functions with crucial business and organization needs.
What impact do Gallup's strengths development programs have on our clients' organizational performance? Our research shows that our strengths development interventions can produce increases in employee engagement that in turn lead to improved business outcomes in areas including retention, productivity, profitability, customer engagement, and safety.
Over the past decade, Gallup has surveyed more than 10 million people worldwide on the topic of employee engagement, and only one-third "strongly agree" with the statement: "At work, I have the opportunity to do what I do best every day." In a recent Gallup Poll, among those who "strongly disagreed" or "disagreed" with this "what I do best" statement, not one single person was emotionally engaged on the job.
Analyses of our clients' employee engagement scores show that workgroups that receive strengths development interventions achieve stronger growth in employee engagement scores than groups that received no strengths intervention or a standard employee engagement intervention. Our studies also indicate that employees who do have the opportunity to focus on their strengths every day are six times as likely to be engaged in their jobs and more than three times as likely to report having an excellent quality of life in general. A strengths development strategy not only can dramatically boost employee engagement, it can also dramatically decrease disengagement.
