Mind Reading For Managers

The Gallup Organization estimates that lack of employee engagement costs US companies millions of dollars each year. Yet incredibly, most employee engagement issues can be solved quite simply with better communication between managers and staff.

However, most managers don’t talk to their staff enough, don’t know what to talk about, or don’t know how to have the necessary conversations to motivate, drive performance, and increase engagement. They lack tools to foster the kind of creativity, innovation, and solutions-oriented work needed in today’s Social Age.

Mind Reading for Managers provides participants with an overview of the 5 FOCUSed Conversations that research shows will make the biggest difference in employee engagement: Feedback, Objectives, Career Development, Underlying Motivators, and Strengths.

Participants will also leave with several tools that they can adopt immediately to enhance employee engagement, motivation, and productivity.
