And… we’re back! A big thank you to all our listeners who were so supportive of our brief hiatus while we experienced significant business activity. We missed you and we’re thrilled to be back behind the microphone and eager to share.
Anytime you press pause on something it gives you an opportunity to have a new, fresh start. That’s what I want to do today – to use this as a chance to acquaint, or reacquaint, those of you listening with the theme of this particular broadcasting forum and that is: Developing Leaders to Create Mutually Meaningful Work Engagements.
What does that mean? It means we will dive into what creates a meaningful engagement for an organization and what achieves a meaningful engagement for an individual – and how we specifically develop leaders to create mutuality between the two.
This is crucial in today’s business world, because while there are two separate but intertwined parts, the organization and the individual -- each of these has needs, desires, and responsibilities. In that, each should also have reasonable expectations of the other. This creates a unique opportunity for leadership development.
While there are a plethora of leadership podcasts available, how we differ and what makes us innovative is our ability to address leadership development with a clear endpoint in mind: the creation those mutually meaningful work engagements. This is paramount in creating bilateral growth and development. Our goal is to help leaders create those win-wins where organizations thrive right alongside individuals.
Here’s what we know: where mutually meaningful engagements are a priority -- productivity improves, profitability rises, and retention stabilizes. There’s more creativity and collaboration, people feel more valued, challenged (in a good way), and part of something bigger than themselves. That can be goal-achieving gold for both parties.
That’s why we do what we do. It’s why our podcast is so laser-focused on this particular aspect of leadership development and helping to create amazing symbiotic relationships that are meaningful for everyone involved.
It’s why, moving forward with renewed energy, commitment, and purpose, we’ll be talking with leaders, emerging leaders, and individuals committed to being more developed contributors.
We’ll talk about approaches and programs and the roles of individuals and organizations. We’ll bring you insights, metrics, strategies, and examples which will illustrate the power of this vital aspect of leadership development. It’s will be exciting.
Thank you again for sticking with us on our journey. I can hardly wait to chat about how mutually meaningful work engagement will be transformational for you and your organization. Let’s have that conversation!
