Did you know that the latest research claims that only 32.5% of your employees are truly engaged? We think we know why. Most engagement efforts have focused on engaging the employee, and not the person. I-Engage is a holistic look at engaging the WHOLE person.

Why I-Engage is Ideal for Management Teams

Leaders need to create an environment in which their employees go ‘above and beyond’.  Before that can happen, leaders need to understand why and how empathetic managers are the ones most likely to create such an environment. The tools provided in this session will allow managers to better understand their employees as people first, including their intrinsic motivational drivers.

Why I-Engage is Ideal for All Employees

Engagement is often seen as a top-down process driven by management. Employees expect the company to do things to engage them. They expect their manager to lead in a way that engages them. While it’s true that employee engagement starts at the top, engagement is truly dependent on individual accountability. Do you know what engages YOU? Do you know why you are or aren’t engaged in your current position? Are your positive emotions driving your engagement, or are they being inhibited by your negative emotions? Do you know what motivates you? Why are you not in your zone? Learn the secrets to becoming a more engaged, motivated, and productive employee in this captivating and self-reflective session of self-discovery.

Lead, Advise, and Advance

Participants will learn:

  • Why Empathy is the most important leadership competency
  • How to evaluate job fit and effectiveness based on three basic criteria, and then create an action plan for making improvements
  • The seven intrinsic motivational drivers, and how to use them to guide development and growth
  • The best way to work “in the zone” by balancing the need to grow in your job against being overwhelmed
