Based on recent research from the Social and Economic Council of Flanders, we know that the chances for getting a burn-out are 3 times smaller when employees have a good relationship with their direct supervisor.
International research from the Corporate Executive Board shows that the direct supervisor accounts for up to 73% of the engagement of employees.
Managers play a crucial role in the well being of their direct reports.
However, putting all the weight on the shoulders of the supervisor is not only unrealistic, it is even counter productive. The reason: it would create dependency and would harm the single most important protective factor against burn out: the opportunity for employees to take their destiny in their own hands.
Building sustained nourishing work environment is a joint responsibility of both the manager and the employee.
Co-building is a process designed to make both the manager and the team stronger. The method is very structured, time efficient(0,5 day) and practical. The method has a solid scientific undertone and has proven it’s benefits time and again in large enterprises.
