When you're empathetic, it allows you to make much stronger connections and relationships with your teams. It's going to help you to put yourself into their positions which will help you create better communication that increases understanding, and when people can understand it's easier for them to become involved. As Stephen Covey says, "first seek to understand if you want to be understood. If you want people to be engaged, then you have to be engaged, you have to show passion and enthusiasm for the goals and objectives.
If you are not enthusiastic, then why shouldn't anyone else be. Enthusiasm is infectious, the more enthusiasm you display, the more this will rub off on your team. When you put people in a position where they can be successful, in my experience, most people will take it. No one comes to work wanting to do a poor job or to go home feeling like they have achieved very little. When people are successful, it feeds into their self-esteem, their sense of worth, which motivates and encourages them to do even more.
The more you can enable your teams, removing the roadblocks that prevent them being achieving the goals, the more successful they will be. As well as enabling teams by removing roadblocks we need to give them the freedom to do their jobs in the way the best see fit, especially where they are experts in what they are doing.

And when you look at the statistics for employee engagement that covers a very large percentage of the work force, as 68 percent of US employees are disengaged, and 65 percent of managers are disengaged.
Employee engagement is a contact sport. You cannot engage people from behind your desk or via emails. You can't engage them if you are not engaged. You need to get out there showing your passion and enthusiasm, clarifying the objectives, explaining the purpose and aligning the goals and desires of the teams with the goals of the initiatives.
Companies with engaged employees perform percent better than those with disengaged employees. Once teams are engaged, the next step is to excite them. Everyone wants to work for a successful team and feel like they have done a great job, so if you can show them how they will be successful, this will get them fired up and ready to work hard towards the goals and objectives. People are not afraid of hard work; they are afraid of failure.
By showing them how success can be achieved will help increase their confidence and belief that they will be successful, which is a great inspiration.
