Title: Leadership and Employee Engagement

Framework: The Role of Leadership Development in Improving Employee Engagement 

It is known that leaders understand the importance of managing programs, policies, and daily operations.  They have invested a significant amount of resources in retaining and developing their employees.  However, leaders also devote as much energy into creating the right environment for employees to thrive and become engaged.  Leaders create the cultural conditions/surroundings/settings in which employees are recognized, valued, and feel a sense of accomplishment for their work.  During this session, we will discuss the importance of providing leadership development engagement skills to team leads, supervisors, and managers, giving them the tools they need to improve engagement and organizational performance. Attendees will also learn about the 20 inclusive behaviors, informed by neuroscience, and how these behaviors can be leveraged to create the engagement throughout the organization.
