Questions for managers to spot disengaged employees

Active disengagement does not develop overnight but takes time to creep in.

Managers should periodically check-in on their team members, preferably during the 1:1 meetings, to spot the early signals of any disengagement. Some of the questions that can help managers to spot disengaged employees are:

  1. What is the one thing that you did recently that you enjoy doing again?
  2. What is the one thing that is holding you from doing your best?
  3. Do you think the project you are currently working on is challenging enough to you?
  4. Do you think your potential is fully tapped?
  5. Are we stretching the project too long?
  6. Do you feel like the project you are currently working on is a waste of time?
Wait! Before you go!
