6 Essential Elements for Leaders and Organizations
According to research by Aon Hewitt, employees who
feel encouraged to share ideas and opinions with
others are 3x more engaged. At DreamWorks Studios,
any employee can write and pitch a movie idea. In fact,
a training course was developed to teach people how
to best pitch their idea, which they’ve now opened the
door for any type of pitch (new business ideas, software,
social media, mobile entrepreneurism).

Difference-makers need time to pause, and ask
the right questions. 3M started the trend followed
by HP and Google, allowing employees to spend
a percentage of their time working on something
they’re passionate about that aligns to the overall
ALLOW FOR THINKING TIME4
In a study conducted by the O.C. Tanner Institute,
employees were asked (without prompting), “What is
the most important thing your manager or company
currently does (or could do) to cause you to produce
great work?” The number-one answer: “Recognize me.”
