Why Choose This Training?

More Than Just A Course Of Lectures

What gets in the way of developing and holding on to new communication skills are old habits of thinking and speaking. Even if the advice is very good the reason why it rarely sticks are the mental habits people inevitably revert to, especially under pressure.

Unlearning those old habits and internalising a more effective and lasting approach to communication needs more than a short course of lectures on how to do it.

What Makes This Training Stand Out?

What makes this training stand out is the exceptional support through one-to-one coaching sessions and continuous feedback. Changing behaviour is not an easy task as old habits are hard to break.

With a 40-year track record we can help you cultivate practical skills, and build your confidence to so you can successfully navigate real-world challenges, ensuring lasting behavioural improvements.

People who feel understood are more receptive

Understanding Disengaged Employees

Getting to grips with disengaged employees is key. It's about noticing who isn't putting their heart into work and figuring out why that's happening.


Disengaged employees are those who have lost their drive at work. They might show up, but they don't give their best. Think of them as team members who've checked out mentally and emotionally.

Their passion has dwindled, and it shows in how they tackle tasks – or don't.

These folks could once be shining stars or steady workers who’ve hit a rough patch. Either way, their lack of interest can hurt company culture and overall morale. Spotting this shift matters because it affects everyone’s work life balance, employee satisfaction, and the business' success on many levels.

Common Causes

A lack of recognition can make employees feel undervalued. This often leads to them not seeing the point in trying hard. Long hours and too much work can also tire them out, making it harder for them to focus or care about their jobs.

Sometimes, they don't get along with their managers or the team, leading to feelings of isolation or frustration at work.

Not having chances to grow or learn new skills can leave employees feeling stuck. They might see no future in staying with the company if they can't advance. Poor communication makes everything worse by creating confusion and uncertainty.

Employees need clear expectations and regular feedback to stay engaged and motivated.

Impact on the Workplace

Knowing why employees pull away helps us see how it shakes up the workplace. Disengaged employees can drag down team spirit and make the work atmosphere heavy. Everyone feels the shift, from managers trying to keep projects on track to coworkers picking up extra tasks.

It's like a domino effect; one disengaged person can start a chain reaction that impacts productivity and morale across the board.

This drop in energy makes meeting company goals harder. Deadlines slip, and quality dips as teams scramble to cover gaps left by those not fully present. Customer satisfaction may wane, leading to lower sales or complaints - all because employee engagement wasn't at its best.

Keeping everyone on board and tuned in is crucial for business success and maintaining a positive culture where people want to give their all.

People can't help arguing when they feel misunderstood

Identifying Disengaged Employees

Spotting disengaged employees is key. They might miss deadlines or seem less interested in their work tasks.

Poor Performance

Poor performance often shows that an employee may not feel engaged at work. Their tasks take longer to finish, and mistakes happen more. This can lead to missed deadlines and low-quality work.

Not only does this affect the team's output, but it also puts extra pressure on coworkers who might have to step in to help.

Managers need to spot these signs early. They should talk with the employee to understand what's behind the drop in performance. It could be a lack of skills or maybe they just don't enjoy their job anymore.

Finding out why is key to fixing the problem and helping them get back on track.

Lack of Interest in Development

Employees might show a lack of interest in development by avoiding new projects or training. They seem unenthusiastic about learning new skills or taking on challenges that could help them grow.

This behaviour can hurt employee morale and hold back the team. Ignoring opportunities for professional development, these employees often stay stuck, doing the same tasks without progress.

They skip meetings meant for career growth and don't ask for feedback to improve their work.

This attitude towards personal and professional growth signals a need for change. Managers should spot these signs early to boost employee engagement and help them find paths that reignite their passion for work.

Encouraging managers to have open conversations can uncover hidden talents or interests, paving the way for more fulfilling roles within the company. Providing clear expectations and creating personal development plans might just be what they need to jump-start their motivation in pursuing career growth and contributing positively to workplace culture.

Ongoing Frustrations

Ongoing frustrations in the workplace often signal a disengaged employee. They might express irritation with changes, or show annoyance at tasks they used to handle well. This ongoing negativity can spill over, affecting team morale and productivity.

It's a clear sign for managers to step in.

Managers must watch closely for these frustration signs. A quick chat could reveal underlying issues needing attention. Addressing these can boost morale and re-engage employees, making them feel heard and valued.

Small actions like this play a big part in turning things around.

Increase in PTO Usage

Frustrations at work can lead to employees taking more paid time off (PTO). They might feel tired, stressed, or just need a break. Seeing a jump in how much PTO is used could be a sign that people are not happy at work.

Employees might take days off instead of facing problems in the office. This can hint at deeper issues like low morale or lack of motivation among the team.

This trend affects employee turnover and engagement levels too. If lots of workers are away often, it's harder for teams to bond and get things done. It also puts extra pressure on those who are still working.

Managers need to keep an eye out for sudden increases in PTO use. It’s a clear call for them to check in with their staff, understand their concerns, and find ways to boost morale and make the workplace better for everyone.

He's now far more aware of his impact on others

Determining the Impact of Disengaged Employees

Finding out how disengaged employees affect work is key. It shows us what we lose and helps us make things better.

Adequate Skills

Employees need the right skills to do their jobs well. Without these, they may feel lost or out of place. This can lead to them not caring about their work. It's vital to check if your team has the skills needed for their tasks.

You might find some employees have talents not used at work yet. Spotting and using these hidden abilities can boost morale and engagement.

Helping employees develop new skills is key too. Training sessions, workshops, or online courses could help a lot. Make sure everyone feels capable and supported in their roles. This approach improves employee engagement and keeps your team strong.

Poor Behaviour

Poor behaviour in the workplace can cover a lot of ground. It might mean not meeting deadlines or being rude to teammates. This sort of attitude brings everyone down and hurts the team's work.

Companies need engaged employees who perform well and treat others right.

Possible Solutions

Finding ways to boost employee morale and increase engagement starts with clear, open communication. Managers should encourage direct feedback from their teams during meetings or through one-on-one catch-ups.

This approach helps pinpoint specific areas for improvement. Creating a work environment that values each person's input makes employees feel valued and heard.

Setting clear goals is also key. It gives everyone a target to aim for, boosting motivation and focus. Regular check-ins on these goals keep the team aligned and accountable while offering chances for positive reinforcement.

Offering opportunities for career development can reignite an employee's drive too, showing them there’s room to grow and succeed within the company.

Employee Engagement Level

Measuring employee engagement shows how involved and enthusiastic employees are in their work. High levels of engagement lead to better performance, more positive morale, and greater retention of top talent.

On the flip side, low engagement can signal issues that need urgent attention—like poor management or unclear expectations.

Engagement surveys often reveal critical insights. They highlight areas for improvement across the board—from communication strategies to personal development opportunities. With these results, managers and HR professionals can craft targeted actions to boost morale and re-engage team members.

This ensures a happier workforce that's more invested in their roles and the company's success.

Employee Motivations

People at work want different things to stay happy and do their best. Some look for chances to grow and learn new skills. They feel good when they see progress in what they can do.

Others might value feedback a lot. This means they like hearing if they're doing well or need to improve something. Feeling appreciated makes them more eager to work hard.

Managers can help by figuring out what each person likes most about their job. Then, use this information to make the work more interesting and rewarding for everyone. For example, some might enjoy taking on new challenges that test their abilities, while others could prefer having clear goals and getting rewards when they reach them.

By paying attention to these motivations, leaders can boost morale and keep everyone engaged in their tasks.

Recent Behaviour Changes

Managers must stay alert to new trends in how employees act. A change could mean someone is feeling disconnected or lacks motivation. Maybe they're quiet in meetings now, when they used to share lots of ideas.

Or perhaps, their work starts slipping - tasks take longer to finish, and the quality drops. This isn't just about missing targets; it's a sign that something deeper might be wrong.

Spotting these shifts early helps managers address issues fast. Keeping an eye on such changes ensures teams can support each other better — making sure everyone feels valued and understood.

This approach boosts employee morale and keeps the workplace positive.

Manager Impact

Leaders have a big effect on whether employees feel involved at work. They set the tone and show by example what's expected. Good managers keep their teams motivated, making sure everyone knows their hard work matters.

When team leaders listen and give useful feedback, it helps boost morale and improve employee engagement.

How to Handle Disengaged Employees using Emotional Intelligence

Using emotional intelligence to handle disengaged employees means talking openly while respecting their feelings. This helps you understand and solve problems together. Keep reading to learn how to do this well.

Direct Communication with Assertiveness

Direct communication with assertiveness is key in dealing with disengaged employees. It means speaking openly and honestly, yet respectfully. Managers need to use clear language, making their expectations known without being harsh.

This approach helps in addressing performance issues or lack of interest head-on.

Using emotional intelligence, managers can balance firmness with understanding. They listen carefully and respond with empathy, showing they value the employee's perspective. This method boosts morale by making staff feel heard and respected while clarifying what needs to change for better engagement and productivity.

Addressing the Issue

Talk to your team directly if you see signs of low morale. Be clear and kind. It's vital for boosting employee morale. Ask them what's making them unhappy at work. Listening shows you care and can lead to fixes that increase employee engagement.

Creating a plan together can help too. This shows you're serious about change, which can improve workplace morale. Actions speak louder than words, so follow through on promises made during these talks.

This approach encourages managers to be part of the solution, not just watching from the sidelines.

Active Listening with Empathy

After addressing the issue, it's time to listen. Active listening with empathy is key. Listen carefully to what your employees say and how they feel. This shows you value them and their opinions.

Make sure they know you understand their point of view.

Also, ask open questions to get deeper into their thoughts and feelings. Respond with kindness and show that you truly care about their well-being. This builds trust and can turn disengaged employees around.

Asking Questions

Asking questions is key to understand why an employee feels disengaged. It shows you care about their views. You should ask clear and direct questions that help find out what bothers them at work.

This might include queries about their daily challenges, how they feel about the team, or what changes could boost their morale. Listen carefully to their answers. This approach helps in spotting issues that might not be obvious at first.

Documenting Conversations

Getting all the answers through questions is a big step. Now, it's crucial to keep track of what was said. Writing down talks helps everyone stay on the same page. This action makes sure you don't forget any details.

It also backs up your discussions with clear records.

Writing should be easy and quick, capturing key points from each chat. Don't let paperwork scare you off—it's about having useful notes for later use. These notes are vital for planning next steps and showing progress over time.

They serve as reminders for both managers and employees on agreed actions and goals set during meetings focused on re-engagement strategies and increasing employee morale.

Commitment to Action

After chatting and listening, it's time to act. Managers should sit with employees and plan clear steps. This means setting goals that are both meaningful and achievable. Everyone agrees on what needs to happen next.

They put these plans into writing so that there's no confusion later.

Next up, they decide how often they will check in to see progress. These follow-ups help keep everyone on track and show employees their hard work is seen.

Follow-up Steps

Check in regularly to see how things are going. Use team meetings, emails, or quick chats to ask about progress. Make these check-ins feel friendly and open. Encourage managers to listen well during these times.

This shows you care and keeps everyone focused on the goal.

Set dates for review sessions too. Here, talk about what's worked and what hasn't in re-engaging employees. Celebrate wins, no matter how small, and plan how to tackle any ongoing issues.

Keep the emphasis on growth and learning from experiences together. These steps help maintain high morale and show that improving engagement is an ongoing process everyone is part of.

Are you helping them think for themselves?

Re-engaging Disengaged Employees

Bringing back the spark in disengaged employees might seem tough. Yet, it's all about tapping into what drives them and rekindling their interest in their work.

Personal Development Plan

A Personal Development Plan is a tool that helps employees set goals for their growth. It involves looking at skills and deciding what needs improvement. Employees work with managers to make these plans.

They focus on both professional and personal goals. This way, workers know what they need to do to get better at their job and feel more connected.

Creating such a plan requires clear steps and regular check-ins. Managers play a big part in this process, providing support and feedback along the way. The aim is to boost employee morale by showing them how they can climb higher in their careers.

Finding hidden talents also becomes easier through this approach—opening doors for employees that they might not have known existed before.

Goal Setting and Accountability

Moving on from creating a personal development plan, setting goals and ensuring accountability is crucial. This step helps employees see clearly what they need to achieve and how their work impacts the team.

Workers commit to specific targets with timelines. Managers play a key role here, supporting their team members to reach these goals.

Accountability means managers must check in regularly. They see if employees are on track or need help. It’s all about open talks where both sides share thoughts and feedback openly.

This process keeps everyone focused and motivated, making sure the whole team moves forward together.

Regular One-on-One Meetings

Regular one-on-one meetings are key for re-engaging employees. They allow managers and employees to build a strong personal connection. During these sessions, feedback flows freely in both directions.

Employees feel heard and valued. This direct communication can light up their motivation again.

In these meetings, setting clear goals is crucial. Discussing progress helps everyone stay on track. Managers can offer support where needed, making sure the employee feels backed up at every step.

This approach strengthens trust and boosts morale among the team.

360 Feedback

360 feedback is a powerful tool in re-engaging disengaged employees. This method gathers comments about an employee's performance from various sources. These include their managers, peers, direct reports, and sometimes even customers.

The goal here is to give everyone a full view of how others see the employee's work.

Using 360 feedback helps highlight both strengths and areas for growth. It opens up conversations that might not happen otherwise. Employees get a chance to understand how their actions affect those around them.

They also learn what they do well. This can boost employee morale and encourage personal development - key steps towards re-engagement.

Recognition of Positive Behaviour

Moving on from 360 feedback, praising good work is crucial. Saying "well done" makes a big difference. It boosts morale and motivates employees to keep doing their best. This simple act can turn disengaged employees into engaged ones.

They feel seen and valued for their efforts.

Giving custom rewards for great performance also helps. These rewards show you pay attention to what matters to them personally. For example, if an employee loves reading, a new book can be a thoughtful reward.

Or, extra time off could mean the world to someone who values work-life balance. Recognising positive behaviour in such tailored ways encourages everyone to give their best shot.

Monitoring Performance and Potential

Keeping an eye on how team members are doing and what they could achieve is key. Check their work quality and see if they go the extra mile. It tells you a lot about their drive and where they might grow.

You want engaged employees to perform well, right? So, give feedback often. Make it positive and useful. This helps them know how they’re doing and where to aim higher.

Setting clear goals matters too. When folks know what’s expected, they can hit targets better. Use regular meetings to talk about these goals. Ask for their thoughts as well—this makes them feel valued and part of the journey.

Plus, it shows you care not just about the job done but also about employee development and happiness at work.

They get why their work matters. Sharing plans, changes, or results makes everyone feel part of a team.

Being transparent isn't just good for morale; it's smart business too. Employees can offer fresh ideas if they understand the big picture. Also, when people know more about their jobs, they tend to do better work.

Identifying Hidden Talents

Spotting hidden talents in your team can boost morale and help with employee retention. Talk to them, listen, and observe what makes them light up. Maybe a quiet team member is great at solving complex problems or someone has a knack for keeping customers happy.

Offer tasks outside their usual work and see how they do. This approach promotes growth and keeps everyone engaged.

Encourage employees to share their hobbies or activities they enjoy outside work. These interests often reveal skills that could benefit your projects or team dynamics. By asking about these passions, you create an open environment where talents don't stay hidden.

Plus, you might find unexpected ways to innovate or solve workplace challenges by harnessing these newfound abilities.

Customer Testimonials

Sharing stories from happy customers boosts morale. It shows staff the value of their work. Reading good feedback makes employees proud and pushes them to do even better. This kind of sharing can be done in meetings or on a company board.

Some firms make videos of customer praise. They play these at gatherings or share them online where all can see. Seeing real people talk about how the team's hard work helped them is very motivating.

It gives a clear picture of the positive impact they have outside the office walls.

Encouraging Problem-Solving

To get employees back on track, asking them to solve problems works wonders. Let them tackle real challenges in their day-to-day work. This makes them think hard and find solutions.

It also shows you trust their skills and judgement. Give them the tools they need and support from the team. This way, they feel important and part of something big.

Incentivising Good Work

Giving rewards for good work boosts morale. Happy employees often do better. They also stick around longer. Rewards can be simple - a thank you, extra time off, or a small gift card.

It tells them their hard work matters. This approach keeps everyone aiming high and feeling valued.

Setting clear goals is next. Employees need to know what they're working towards. Clear targets make rewarding easier and fairer. Everyone knows where they stand.

Best Practices to Avoid with Disengaged Employees

Ignoring a disengaged employee won't make the problem vanish. Acting hypocritically or setting unclear expectations will only deepen the issue, steering away from these practices paves the way to re-engagement.

Ignoring the Issue

Pretending the problem doesn't exist can make things worse. It's like ignoring a leak in your roof; eventually, it will cause more damage. Disengaged employees won’t fix themselves.

They need attention and action from you.

Acting as if everything is fine means missing out on fixing real problems. Talk to your team, listen to their concerns, and work together for better engagement and morale. This way, everyone moves forward happier and more productive.

Hypocritical Attitude

A hypocritical attitude can push disengaged employees further away. Say, for example, managers ask for high morale but show negativity themselves. This creates distrust. Employees see this and feel misled.

They think, "Why should I change if they don't?" It makes them less likely to improve or engage.

Keeping promises is key too. Imagine telling your team you value their well-being, then loading them with work without support. This contradiction makes employees question the sincerity of any efforts to re-engage them.

They need actions that match words to truly buy in and boost their engagement and morale.

Lack of Expectations

Setting clear expectations is crucial. Employees need to know what's expected of them. Without this, they feel lost and unsure. They might not work hard or care much about their jobs.

This can hurt the team's performance and lower morale.

Leaders should talk to employees often, setting goals and checking in on progress. This helps employees stay focused and understand their roles better. It makes them happier at work too.

Everyone does better when they know what to aim for.
