In today’s show, Brandon Dawson talks about a surprising statistic: According to Gallup, 70% of workers are disengaged with their job. How can you harness the power of your people? By aligning your interests!
Gallup polls says that out of 100 million Americans, 70% of them who were surveyed in 2013 were either actively disengaged or disengaged at work. That means the core energy out of the 100 million who work, only 30% care about what they do. The question is how do you harness the power of your people to help you create an amazing organization?
“It’s through doing things differently with your people. Who you surround yourself with contributes significantly to your life.”
Let me tell you, if you don’t make it an absolute priority to surround yourself with the best people, with the best intentions, then it is a struggle building your business — a struggle for you and a struggle for them. And when you take two groups of people, you and your team, and you bring them together with a core purpose, a core objective, and a core agenda — which is to significantly improve the quality of each other’s lives through what you each choose to do together — that’s where power comes from.
Your total success will be amplified and magnified through the total number of people you find who will allow you to add substantive, impactful value to their lives, so they can add substantive value to the lives of the people they care about. And when you have that kind of culture, when you have that kind of organization, when you have that kind of focus — enriching the lives of the people you serve, your employees who ultimately serve your customers, that becomes your culture. If you don’t exemplify how to do that each and every day in everything you do, you can’t expect your people to exemplify it each and every day in what they do.
