Employee Proactivity

proactiveIn the endless drive for greater productivity, every manager wants employees to become more proactive which equals to higher effectiveness and usually means improved financial performance, happier shareholders, and less sleepless nights for leaders.

To create a team of proactive employees, leaders need to demonstrate flexibility and foster a trust-based working environment. Our research has found that the two are strongly connected.

By demonstrating flexibility, leaders can develop an understanding of the basic needs that all employees have. Once a manager accepts that the organisation's success is linked to its ability to satisfy employees' needs, the path towards getting a proactive team has begun.
