Stress and Employee Engagement

The Significance between Stress and Employee Engagement

Written by Dr. Sharon Johnson

argument-1299108__180Why are so many employees stressed out on their jobs? In my position as a consultant, coach, and trainer and speaking inside of government organizations, as well as speaking with private companies, small businesses, and individuals, it is clear that stress can be directly related to the environment that individuals are in. Can we truly say that stress comes from our environment?

Most of the time when I speak

Courage and Fear

This weekend I flew in on American airlines to Mississippi and had a Dallas connection. I contemplated on the 60 executives who I taught employee engagement strategies. I had the opportunity to reflect on some of the many occasions where I have the courage to do a lot of things. As I peered through the window of the airline window, all I could see was the beauty of clouds as it floated in the skies. I felt like I was just floating the skies too. It dawned on me that I had the courage to put my

Sunrise of Life

It was a beautiful morning as I drove on the highway I 95 in South Florida. The sun rises as if it was rising to meet me on that early morning drive. I could not help myself watching the bright yellow ball as it illuminates the skyline of downtown Fort Lauderdale. The beauty of the sun, the shades of the clouds around it, that beautiful looking burning flame silhouettes the sky leaving me in awe.  Tiny raindrops drizzled on my car as the sun pressure the sky with

Mama’s Heart on the First Day of School

I watched a mother cried so hard after dropping her child for the first in school. I took her some tissue and hugged her. Her baby was going to kindergarten. I convinced her it would be ok.

I could not help myself as I watched this mother cried.  For me it was easy because my child was going to the 5th grade.  Her baby was going to kindergarten.  I was moved by her emotions.  She was crying as if it was the last day on earth.  The funny thing is as I hugged her and consoled her, she hugged

Employee Engagement 101

Employee Engagement is the hot topic in all workplaces today.  Why?  Did you know that  according to current statistics 70% of work places today are disengaged?   Right now leaders and managers should be thinking of employee engagement training as an emergency for the workplace.  Whether I am coaching executives throughout the USA or internationally, in places like Paraguay, coaching on employee engagement has the same dynamics.

As a leader or a manager you may be wondering why is it importance for employees to be  engaged in their workplaces.  I have been traveling across the United States and teach an employee engagement to federal executives and to my surprise employees needs are the same everywhere. Employee engagement is a framework that every organization should be using to meet the needs of their employees.

Getting my certification from Gallup to teach employee engagement and creating an engaging workplace in the United States Postal Service has opened my eyes to the seriousness of employee engagement.  Every leader and manager should really get a course on employee engagement before assuming their positions.

People are really suffering from the lack of knowledge of leaders and managers.  Can you rally blame a manager or a leader if they are not getting the best from their employees?  Can you tell leaders how to create engagement if he or  she has never been engaged?  Is the satisfaction of the employees enough?  The truth is that employee engagement is far more crucial than satisfaction.

To learn more about taking you and your team to the next level with training in employee engagement, please contact, me Dr. Sharon Johnson at http://www.comtivate.com. I will teach you and your team how to create employee engagement, how to identify the engagement of your employees and most importanly, how to increase productivity and relationships among employees.

A Mother’s Sailor

PMS Derrick JohnsonOne of my biggest joy as a mother is to have a son as a sailor. I remember clearly when my son decided that he wanted to join the Navy when he graduated from high school. At first, I was a little skeptical when I think of all the different kinds of wars going on throughout the world.  The  first thought is that I would not want to lose my child. However, I immediately reminded myself that this was a dream of his not mine.  I was excited for him.

My mind played a lot of games on me.  I

The Dream of Becoming A Soldier

One of my biggest dream was to join the military. I remember when I came to America, when I heard the stories and the commitment of what soldiers do for their country, I was ready to serve. I remember the day I did the test for the Army.   I was so excited with the imagination that I would be a soldier. When I received the scores I was overjoyed that I was eligible to be a soldier. I remember that day when I was told that I could go to Fort Hamilton to sign up.  It was one of the most excited

Don’t Try To Change People

Dr. J

Are you living your life trying to change people to be who you want them to be?  Why do we do that?  To be honest with you, I think I do that a lot of times.  I really did that mostly when I was young and seeking the consent of others. As I look back into my life, I can recall some relationships that I really thought was great for me to have.  I just did not like the habits of some of those people.  I tried to change them and, you know what?  Some of them changed to please me.  My grandmother

Don’t Let Somebody Else’s Opinion of You Become Your Reality

I remember when I was growing up in Jamaica people told me what I would be.  It was not a lot.  Trust me.  Based on the circumstances, the environment, and the people, I believed that they knew exactly what they said.  After all, that was all I knew.  Their opinions were the ones that mattered then.  As I agree older, and started experiencing self actualization, I realized that they had their opinions and I had mine.  Life throws us challenges, yet we grow, and as we grow, we have to make

Music From Garbage – Paraguay

Can music really come from garbage.  Yes!  During my visit to Paraguay I was introduced to these amazing children who can make you dance to the great tunes of music made from garbage.  These instruments are made from sardines can, forks, spoons, bottle cap covers, foil paper, plates, and so much more.  You name the garbage, they can make an instrument.  This was one the most shocking time of my life and I should say most amazing.  The children in Paraguay makes music from the garbage that
