Don't Settle For Disengagement in Your Work Day

Strengths Coaching

I'm frequently asked why I get so wound up when I get the opportunity to help one of my career coaching clients understand their strengths, why their strengths matter, how their strengths operate and how they can leverage their strengths.  

The Gallup organization has been measuring employee engagement in the U.S. for over a decade. You can see below that less than 1/3 of U.S. workers are what Gallup calls "engaged" workers.  Click on the article title to be taken to the full Gallup article.

Don't Be The Person In The Picture Above

If you're in the 2/3 of U.S. workers who are "disengaged" or "actively disengaged" and you're tired of being unhappy, tired, worn out stressed and maybe even depressed over your work, I can help.

My Mission

My mission is to help my career coaching clients to learn how to maximize their performance.  Maximizing means learning how to align one's natural strengths with their chosen work so they can produce the highest possible results, so they can be happily engaged in their work, so they can be less stressed and so that in many cases, they can maximize their "Personal Stock Value" (earning potential).

Majority of U.S. Employees Not Engaged Despite Gains in 2014

Story Highlights

  • 31.5% of U.S. employees engaged in 2014
  • Engagement at its highest since 2000
  • Younger workers are least engaged
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Less than one-third (31.5%) of U.S. workers were engaged in their jobs in 2014. The average is up nearly two percentage points from 29.6% in 2013 and represents the highest reading since 2000, when Gallup first began tracking the engagement levels of the U.S. working population. However, a majority of employees, 51%, were still "not engaged" and 17.5% were "actively disengaged" in 2014.
