Overview

True Engagement Comes from the Inside

A recent session of the National Academy of Human Resources featured an excellent presentation on employee engagement. 

A thorough review of best practices was shared. 

While all of the suggestions were good ideas, all focused on what the organization could do to get the employees more engaged. No ideas were presented on what the employees could do to engage themselves.

What You Will Learn

 

In this fast-paced Webcast, Dr. Marshall Goldsmith, Mark Thompson and Bonita Buell-Thompson will discuss employee engagement from a different perspective. Together they will outline strategies that individual employees can use to become more engaged and to measure their own increase in engagement. 

You'll hear about the good work being done in companies and show how internally-driven engagement can support organizationally-driven engagement.

While attending this program is FREE, reservations are required.
