Kylie Bell describes engagement (the "E" in Seligman's PERMA) at work as being when people have the opportunity to do what they're best at doing. Leaders can increase staff engagement by noticing people's various strengths and ensuring they are allocated the roles that suit their strengths, or by demonstrating how they are using their strengths in their current role. This increases people's sense of autonomy: doing what they do best, and what they like to do, increases self-efficacy (belief in own ability) and produces a huge jump (according to Gallup) in overall staff engagement.
Kylie talks about:
- The joy of engagement
- Ensuring people are in right roles to suit strengths
- Assessing strengths for matching
- "I have the opportunity to do what I'm best at every day"
