Many businesses invest heavily in creating positive work cultures. Yet, research shows that the collective experience is only half the picture. Employee engagement rests with meeting individual needs and according to the research organisation Gallup only 15% of employees are highly engaged.
As a business owner or manager how do you find out what those needs are? Your first step may be to carry out an employee survey. This will be customised for your organisation but based around the 8 key aspects identified by experts of high performing teams.
Follow up interviews can provide further qualitative feedback and this information can help you confidently move your organisation forward and design positive work experiences.

Working with Aoife was my first foray into what it means to be introverted. I found it highly interesting and much of it resonated with my experiences. Aoife had an excellent understanding of introversion and was able to translate that into an engaging and informative session. Most importantly, she offered pragmatic and actionable advice as to how we could find success in the business world while still accepting our differences.
