Why You Need to Create Enthusiasts in Your Organization
The term employee doesn’t fit the workplace anymore. Let’s transform the term employees and reinvent a new one. Instead, let’s encourage enthusiasts in our organizations. The term employee is associated with a paradigm no longer useful in business today. It’s the paradigm where employees give their time dutifully in exchange for a paycheck, benefits, and a remote chance of work that inspires.

Today organizations need enthusiasts. They are people who show up prepared and encouraged by work that brings meaning to their life. Enthusiasts are willing to do what it takes to bring customers satisfaction, even if it means switching gears to do something outside their area of responsibility. Why? Because enthusiasts understand the impact they have. Enthusiasts know that they are a contribution to those whom the organization offers its products and services.
Creating enthusiasts at work requires leaders to recognize the inseparability of the professional and personal lives of employees.
Creating enthusiasts at work deepens loyalty to the organization.
Creating enthusiasts at work helps employees uncover their purpose in their career. Enthusiasts have purpose-driven careers.
It’s time to move out from the gloomy mood permeating so many companies right now. The place to start is reengaging enthusiasts and seeing them as the company’s future.
