Unleash the Power Within to Unlock Organizational Success

May 31, 2024

Organizational performance lives or dies with people. Pure and simple – no matter what business a company is in, they win or lose based on how effective their people are. Imagine the level of performance if every employee was deeply engaged, motivated, and operating at their highest potential. This vision can become a reality by unleashing the inherent power within your employees.

According to a widely discussed Gallup report, only 15% of employees worldwide are actively engaged in their jobs, while 85% of the workforce either have a negative perspective about work or are more neutral. This statistic should be a wake-up call for leaders everywhere. The success of any organization hinges on its people – their passion, their creativity, and their commitment.

Every organization relies on individual employees to carry out its unique mission. They initiate and support business relationships, introduce and improve products and services, create and maintain reliable business processes and systems, and deliver value. If a chain is only as strong as its weakest link, then an organization is only as strong as its least engaged team member.  If leaders take to heart these employee disengagement statistics, it becomes evident that there are likely sources of dysfunction throughout their organization that hold back the potential to succeed.

When individuals operate in a manner consistent with their most-authentic self, they achieve at a high level while feeling fully energized and highly satisfied. This authenticity is the key to unlocking individual potential. But most haven’t discovered their authentic best self and instead experience low energy, reactionary behaviors, and stifled growth, leading to poor performance, burnout, and high turnover.

So, what causes people to become disengaged? Many people allow their careers to unfold in a haphazard fashion leading to greater distance from their innermost core.  A 2023 survey by payroll processing company Paychex found that almost 80% of those who quit their jobs during the Great Resignation ultimately regretted their decision to leave.  This just reinforces the underlying, deep-seated issue: many people are not in touch with their true selves and what truly drives them.

But what if companies could help their people discover their true selves and create an environment with opportunities for everyone to fully express their full potential?  With such an investment in employee growth, organizations can reduce costly turnover and increase job satisfaction among employees of all ranks.  

Imagine the gift of self-discovery where employees uncover their Achievement DNA – the most satisfying and energizing roles, values, needs, and skills they exhibit when achieving at the highest levels. Add to that the environmental factors that can support or hinder their true self-expression. Armed with this deep personal insight, your people are empowered to take control of their path forward, and managers can better connect them with work they love and help them further develop their unique strengths.

That’s what tru® is all about.  With this innovative platform, leaders looking for breakthrough performance can counter the widespread malaise in today’s workplace head-on.  By helping employees discover and express their true selves, companies can create a vibrant, engaged, and high-performing workforce. This is not just about improving productivity; it's about transforming lives and, in turn, transforming the organization.

Unleash the power within your people, and watch your organization soar to new heights! The journey to true engagement and extraordinary performance begins with recognizing and nurturing the unique strengths of every individual.
