Question for you, today:
Do your employees see your organization as innovative?
If they had to rank you on a scale of 1-10, what would they say?
I’ve posed this question to a lot of folks recently, because it breaks my heart how often employees don’t know how much cool stuff is going on behind closed doors.
I can’t imagine how hard it is to see the results of your company’s latest employee survey or Net Promoter Score (NPS) when you score a 2 on the question, “How innovative is our company?” It must feel like no one else in the business seems to have a true sense of how hard you’re working to push new ideas forward, or that your latest breakthrough is actually taking off!
This low internal perception of innovation efforts impacts companies at every level. It makes it harder to attract and retain top talent. It creates a barrier for sales and marketing to showcase your best work. It challenges the stock price and valuation for the board and C-Suite when the company seems like it’s not keeping up with its competitors.
If you’re feeling powerless to shape other peoples’ perceptions, I want you to know the power is in your hands to tell stories that get people excited and engaged in all the great things you do.
