You'll master the secrets of building incredible employee engagement

Course Description/Agenda


Low Employee Engagement Is Reaching Epidemic Levels. And the Costs Are Adding Up.

Study after study shows that poor employee engagement is the leading cause of subpar results in today's workplaces. In financial terms, the hit to the bottom line can be significant!

So what's the dissatisfaction about? Unengaged employees report they ...

  • Don't trust that their managers will "walk their talk"
  • Don't get to use their strongest skills on the job
  • Don't get a voice in how to do things or in setting goals
  • Don't understand how they fit into the larger mission of the organization
  • Feel that their contributions are going unnoticed
  • Doubt that career advancement is available to them with their current employer

When Employees Don't Feel Like They Matter, They Check Out. You CAN'T Allow This to Happen!

As a manager, you must find and tap into the strengths of every individual on your team. You must help your people feel included, respected, and excited to be a part of something larger than themselves. You must create an engagement-focused culture that brings purpose and meaning to the day-to-day activities that your employees are engaged in. They want to feel assured that they're working in a great organization, for a great manager, with the promise of an even brighter future ahead. It's a big job, but it can be done!
