Engagement isn’t just a buzzword—it’s the cornerstone of success in higher education and the workplace.
As the saying goes, “People leave managers, not companies.” This sentiment rings true not only in the workplace but also in learning institutions. Research consistently highlights the pivotal role of positive relationships in student engagement and employee retention.
Did you know that nearly half of all Americans cite their boss as the primary reason for leaving a job? This statistic underscores the critical impact of leadership on satisfaction and success.
But here’s the kicker: according to Gallup, the majority of the world’s employees are quietly disengaging from their jobs. The same phenomenon is observed in higher education, where students may disengage and gradually withdraw without expressing dissatisfaction. Also known as “quiet quitting,” it’s really a silent exodus, leaving educators and institutions unaware until it’s too late.
