How to Prevent Quiet Quitting
Quiet quitting isn't a new thing. It just has a buzzy new name. Fact is, uninspired workers have been a thing for as long as there has been work. As a leader, if you have quiet quitters it's not on them. It's on you. Here's how to prevent quiet quitting:
Purpose: create meaning, demonstrate why the work matters and ignite the stoke
Togetherness: make people feel like they are part of something. A squad...a crew...that have each other's backs
Treatment: practice the golden rule, treat team members well and give them your respect
Freedom (back off): teach, give resources and then stop micro-managing and let people do their jobs
Appreciate; genuinely notice, value, appreciate and acknowledge people's work
Upside: create opportunities for people to grow, learn and earn more
In the loop: communicate constantly and let your team know what's going on
So grumble less about quiet quitters, and do more to motivate them. That's worth shouting about.
