The Top Ten Signs Your Employee Attitude Survey Needs to Change

This is a useful short video interview with Curt Coffman (co-author of First Break All The Rules) in which he gives ten thoughts and ideas about why your employee survey needs some attention. I particularly like tip #1 where Coffman talks about surveying the same things the same way over and over and yet expecting something different. I’m also a fan of tip #9, which makes the point that if you need to ask your employees 50 questions about how they are feeling, just how far removed, disengaged have you, the surveyer become? It’s a bit too brief in parts, but had I known about this sooner, I would have shown it to a few board directors before the ensuing battles about attitude and engagement surveys.

Wisdom of change

The slideshow (above) shows just some of the ‘top tips’ we received from members of our Change Directors Forum.  We used 10 quotes to create giveaway cards for our event on 25 June (Emily Landis Walker speaking on “Engaging People in Change: leading through uncertainty“).  I used to print the cards – a really great site for creative, value for money printing…

We asked event attendees:“If you could give one piece of advice to fellow Change Directors on managing organisational change, what would it be?”
