The Power of Personal Engagement
The engagement of employees continues to be a top priority for organizational leaders — and for good reason. Research indicates a highly engaged workforce can increase productivity, profitability, and innovation, while reducing costs associated with attracting and retaining new employees. In a nutshell, engaged employees are good for business. With research also showing that less than one-third of employees in the average organization are truly engaged, an ongoing effort must be made to continuously increase employee engagement. While we work to engage others, it is important for all employees to first consider their own level of engagement. Every day we walk through the doors of our office we are either adding to or taking away from the culture of the organization. There is no middle ground. Our personal engagement is our daily contribution to a culture of employee engagement.
In this keynote presentation we will take a look at personal engagement and the impact it has on the engagement of those around us. Often our biggest obstacle to building a strong culture of employee engagement is standing in our shoes. We will identify some simple steps to focus on personal leadership, and discuss how small adjustments can positively impact the engagement of those around us.
