THE CHALLENGE

"70 PERCENT OF YOUR EMPLOYEES HATE THEIR JOBS"

“The good news for the labor market—more people are voluntarily leaving their jobs than they did a year ago. The bad news for corporate managers—more people are voluntarily leaving their jobs. Once you start seeing this trend, you know that employees are discouraged, disillusioned, and uninspired.

I was shocked to see a new Gallup survey show that 71 percent of workers are 'not engaged' or 'actively disengaged' from their work. I checked several sources, including Gallup’s own web site, because I was sure it had to be a typo. Seventy-one percent of employees are not engaged in their work? No wonder customer service is the pits. Employees simply don’t care!

I can see the reaction now among managers and HR professionals across corporate America: Beef up incentives and perks like gift cards and free lunches. The trouble is, nobody is inspired to get up Monday morning because their job offers free soda in the vending machine. People want to be inspired. They want to work toward a higher purpose and feel good about themselves and their leader…

You cannot afford disengaged employees. According to Gallup, people who are emotionally disconnected from their workplaces are less likely to be productive. And more likely to leave.”

FIND A TREE AND YOUR COMPANY

The new Find A Tree corporate program will allow companies to apply our methods to build better teamwork within your company, develop leadership skills, and improve productivity.

In the corporate environment, Find A Tree will motivate employees and build a stronger team. Additionally, Find A Tree can help employees focus on career development and skill-building to reach their desired career and life goals.

The Find A Tree program motivates employees by helping them live their dream. The program begins by assisting participants in identifying their gifts, interests, and talents. Once a dream is determined, a plan of action is developed featuring practical implementation steps. Participants are guided through the process of transforming their plan into reality. The Find A Tree program emphasizes what participants can begin doing today toward realizing their dream, rather than waiting.

Since 1999, Daniel Armstrong and his Find A Tree program have been motivating students and others to meet their full potential. Government, academic, and professional leaders have attested to its effectiveness.

See the program in action as Daniel Armstrong leads a motivational workshop for professionals, delivering a powerful lesson about the importance of urgency. Daniel guides her to look beyond challenges in order to unveil opportunities – in doing so, she recognizes how her dream can be transformed into a reality.

"Employees are far more engaged when their work gives them an opportunity to make a positive difference in the world."

"Engagement — variously defined as 'involvement, commitment, passion, enthusiasm, focused effort, and energy' — has now been widely correlated with higher corporate performance. In a 2012 meta-analysis of 263 research studies across 192 companies, Gallup found that companies in the top quartile for engaged employees, compared with the bottom quartile, had 22 percent higher profitability, 10 percent higher customer ratings, 28 percent less theft and 48 percent fewer safety incidents.

Put simply, the way people feel at work profoundly influences how they perform."
