Employee Engagement - Myth or Magic?


Getting the employees engaged takes a lot more than simply wanting them to be engaged. The task is a function of cultural change and changing culture can be hard work, but it doesn’t have to be. Gary will use real life stories and experience that will help make your journey a little easier and much more likely to be successful.


 
We often hear statements like:
“We can’t seem to get our employees involved”
“We need to get our employees on the same page”
“No one seems to care”
“Our employees seem to have their own agenda”



 If this sounds familiar, join us to learn simple approaches to improving your organization’s safety culture. Expect to learn:

  1.  How leadership doesn’t have to come from the formal leader.
  2. The use of coaching, mentoring, modeling and influencing to increase engagement.
  3. How to articulate a believable and desirable vision
  4. The secrets to an effective action plan
  5. Skill assessment and development to promote engagement
