Employee engagement is key to creating better bottom line results and a healthy work culture. But practically speaking, how do you motivate employees to greater productivity? In this workshop we'll tackle the question. We'll discuss the importance of leading vs managing you people. We'll also address the power of talking to the "why" not just the "how" and "what". Once you've built a strong "why", working with employees to focus their priorities for the year and providing quarterly feedback is key to increasing performance and developing an ownership culture.
