3 Reasons Why Mattering Is the Agenda, or Should Be!

Reason #1: CHANGE A HEART. CHANGE A MIND. CHANGE A WORLD.

WHY MAKE MATTERING THE AGENDA in your workplace, school, and local community?  This is like asking, why to breathe air, drink water and eat food? Once the necessities of human life are met, the need to matter trumps almost everything else. We were created for significance, and for us to perceive that we don’t matter is both dangerous and terrifying. When people know that they matter and their genius is needed by the world, hearts, and minds change.  Worlds change.

Reason #2: ENGAGEMENT MATTERS 

Disengagement runs rampant amongst employees: “The percentage of U.S. workers in 2015 who Gallup considered engaged in their jobs averaged 32%. The majority (50.8%) of employees were ‘not engaged,’ while another 17.2% were ‘actively disengaged.’” This $11B annual loss for companies can be rectified with two words: YOU MATTER. We call YOU to consciously disrupt this pattern by choosing to lead a scalable and sustainable initiative to turnaround the culture in your community by letting everyone know that their contribution and actions are important and ultimately they matter! The essential values a business should follow for long-term success are putting employees first, establishing a solid foundation of trust and integrity as well as strong models for customer care, according to the 2016 Deloitte Millennial Survey.

Reason #3: TWO WORDS CAN BRING COMMUNITIES TOGETHER: #YOUMATTER

Meeting your employees’ needs beyond a financial perspective can potentially boost efficiency and maximize gains in the long run. How? Try using simple words and actions to impact your community, like sending MATTERGRAMs: an ingenuous reminder that can change a day, a mind or a heart. Create an interpersonal message and let others know in your community and workplace that they matter. Imagine receiving a MATTERGRAM saying that you’re enough, you have influence, you are a genius, you have a contribution to make, you have a gift that others need, you are the change, your actions define your impact and YOU MATTER! These two words can change lives and change our world, if we understand them and we leverage them in the right way.
