Do You Ignite Passion in Those You Lead? Take this Quiz

First few Article Sentences

Passion is a powerful, intense emotion. When we feel passion, we are energized and moved to create with enthusiasm. Passion leads to great inventions, art, music, sports, and other extraordinary endeavors. Some describe this desire as being in the “zone.” I attribute this space to a free-flowing consciousness that occurs when we are in alignment with our soul. We are so totally engaged in our passion that time slips by, we are inspired, and we are deeply satisfied. We are fulfilling our soul’s desire.

But how many people at work are actually feeling the passion of their soul’s desire, or at least feeling engaged at work? Gallup has reported approximately 70% of employees feeling disengaged in the last few years. A new Gallup article, dated July 22, 2021, reports 74% of actively disengaged and 55% of disengaged workers are actively seeking new career opportunities, with 48% of employees overall looking for new jobs. They cite some people are calling this the “Great Resignation.“ Others say it is really the “Great Discontent.” Employee resignations are astronomically expensive for companies, both in terms of lack of productivity and the costs associated with recruiting, hiring, and training employees.

Disengaged employees are a direct result of their relationship with their leader or manager. As proof, Gallup finds that it takes more than a 20% pay raise to entice most employees away from a manager who engages them, and next to nothing to lure most disengaged workers. Clearly, leaders who are able to engage employees are extremely valuable.
