Worldwide, over 85% of employees report being disengaged in their work! Actively disengaged employees cause disruption and dissatisfaction within a company.
Engage your employees and lead them to be happier, more productive contributors to your organization through Meaning-Centered Leadership. When employees find meaning in the workplace, it also helps them to find meaning in their personal lives.
This Meaning-Centered Leadership presentation teaches the why and the how of creating meaning in the workplace. Dr. Jackson will deep-dive into its three elements:
Engagement – building trust, showing care and concern, using active listening, and establishing open communication
Empowerment – collaborative visioning, recognition, and enthusiasm
Expertise – wisdom, optimism, and humility
Participants can look forward to research and data presented in a clear and compelling fashion. A visual Keynote will compliment the presentation, while frequently engaging the audience with questions and the acknowledgment of shared experiences. Participants will learn skills and strategies that can immediately be implemented in the workplace, and will receive a workbook to serve as future reference.
