Discretionary Effort: The best gift you can receive from your team
So, what is Discretionary Effort Leadership, exactly?
Each day when an employee walks in the office door and starts work or begins work from a remote location, that employee makes a choice whether or not to give discretionary effort.
Discretionary effort is the difference between the level of effort, creativity and problem solving one is capable of bringing to a task versus the effort required to just get by or make do and still receive a paycheck.
We work with top level executives and managers to create an environment and culture where discretionary effort can flourish.
The discretionary effort culture is built by charismatic leaders who know how to build productive teams. Increasing charisma and building dynamic teams are the key skills our program enhances and refines.
Can you afford NOT to encourage Discretionary Effort?
The benefits of discretionary effort are an outgrowth of leaders focusing on the elements of the job that are important to their employees, and then learning how to tie these elements to achieving business goals and objectives.
The employee then becomes directly engaged in the success of the organization.
You can’t afford to ignore it.
