Maximized Leadership™ Helping Employees Feel They Belong
Creating a Sense of Belonging in the Workplace
Everyone needs and wants to feel accepted, included, heard… and be a part of something bigger than themselves. It’s a basic human need - as important to us as food… clothing… or shelter. Helping others feel like they belong is the cornerstone of inclusive leadership. Part of how we define ourselves depends on what types of groups to which we belong: family units, social groups, religious affiliations, and common interest groups such as fitness, music or hobbies. The need to feel like we belong doesn’t end when we enter our place of work.

The feeling that we are recognized for our achievements… our contributions… and valued as individuals… is vital - even more so when it comes to our workplace. This is where the need to belong is heightened. We often compare ourselves to others and rank our own value based on how our co-workers and our company see us.
That sense of belonging encourages us to excel in our day-to-day tasks and activities as well as engage with our team members. It’s how we organize ourselves. Being able to connect with a team, a manager, a supervisor, and the organization as a whole is vital to a person’s well-being and their personal performance.
