The top tactic for employee engagement is leader rounding. Rounding allows leaders to recognize and reward success, while informing process needs and improvements. During rounding conversations, leaders are encouraged to ask direct reports:
Reward and recognition serve to validate the good work of employees at all levels, as well as encourage repetition of behaviors that make our systems best places to work and learn. As you engage in reflection, with the close of the year, take time to consider how you might systematize reward and recognition.
Our team frequently reminds leaders, “In education, even the way we change has changed.” In the midst of constant change, what remains in education is the desire to have purpose, do worthwhile work, and make a difference in the lives of those they touch.
