About this course

Do you want to know how to Develop and Lead Engaged Team?

Research shows that organizations with engaged employees outperform other organizations by 202%. Shareholder return is 19% higher when employees are engaged. In fact, engaged employees are emotionally and intellectually committed to the success of the organization. They go the extra distance; are more productive; have lower stress levels; enjoy greater work satisfaction and stay longer with the organization.

And yet, today’s employees are seeking more from their jobs and careers than in previous decades. Apart from seeking tangible benefits such as salary, they look out for roles that will provide a sense of satisfaction and fulfillment. The employee-work contract has changed, the balance of power has shifted from employer to employee, forcing business leaders to learn how to build an organization that engages employees as sensitive, passionate, creative contributors.

In this 2 day of highly interactive training, participants will discover and practice tools, ideas, practices, actions, and behaviors they can implement to build, strengthen, and nurture a fully engaged, connected and committed team.
