Are You Looking Forward to Going to Work on Monday?

Well, are you?

Are your employees?

This is a great question you can use to engage your employees consistently.  

In a recent LinkedIn article by David Zinger, an employee engagement speaker, he says that he loves this question because it allows you to check on employee engagement more often, it’s easy to do, and it transforms disengagement into an opening for a constructive conversation.

download the cheat sheet!I think it is a great question to ask employees reporting to you! It gives you an opportunity to open a regular dialogue with your employees, which is essential to effective leadership. In my “Cheatsheet for Improving Employee Engagement in Just 10 Minutes” (which you can click here to download), I give some simple ways to engage with employees weekly. Like Zinger mentions, employee engagement isn’t just something you measure twice a year and forget about. 

This question is another useful tactic for fostering the environment of continual communication that is so vital for a high performance workplace. Although I wouldn’t necessarily recommend asking this specific question every week, I would recommend asking questions like this regularly.

These types of ongoing employee engagement activities are best complemented by properly executed employee engagement surveys. The survey is where you’ll really be able to see if your efforts are having the desired effect.

Think of the survey as a census of all employees at a point in time, which yields actionable data and can provide critical direction for leaders. It works in conjunction with the daily, weekly, and monthly task of engaging employees – which is strengthened by encouraging a regular, open dialogue with questions like this one.
