There are a lot of frustrated people in most workplaces today. We’re not talking about the incorrigible office grump or the permanent slacker. Instead, we’re referring to dedicated workers who are being prevented from achieving their peak potential by organizational obstacles. In challenging economic times, when most organizations are struggling to do more with less, leaders can ill afford to squander any resource – including employee motivation. But Hay Group research suggests that frustrated employees represent 20% or more of the workforce in most organizations. These employees, who are by definition highly engaged, are often disinclined to complain about their situations, making frustration a “silent killer” of employee productivity and organizational performance.
To get the most from talented people, organizations need not only to motivate them, but also to enable them to channel their extra efforts productively. Managers need to align employees with roles that fully leverage their potential and provide them with the workplace supports they need to carry out their responsibilities.
This webinar will help you understand what workplace frustration is, the negative consequences it has on individuals and organizations, how to diagnose it and its root causes within your team, and identify strategies for taking effective action to promote higher levels of employee enablement and unleash the full potential of your people.
