The Connection Quadrants was created to answer a simple question: what is lighting your fire, and what is burning you out? Every employee has things they enjoy, and things they wish they could change. However, studies reveal that 80 percent of workers admit they knowingly aren’t performing at their potential. This translates to decreased productivity, increased costs, and yes…workplace drama.
This tool is designed to measure connection in the work place. While there are many assessments of personality, strength finders, etcetera, none of them cover the most important factor in your performance—your personal connection to the work you’re doing and the people you do the work with!
Why is this important:
Connection is the catalyst that turns meaning and motivation into results. “Meaning” is the level of purpose that people ascribe to their work. “Motivation” is their commitment level to do their work with excellence.
This is a unique conversation because most assessments deal strictly with the individual’s temperament or the team's dynamics. The Connection Quadrants allows leadership to diagnose the causes that lie beneath the surface that are causing distracting people from the big picture goals.
