Engage & Inspire Your Workforce

Presented by: - Tracy Butz, Think Impact Solutions

Tuesday, November 19, 2013
Alliant Energy Center
Madison, WI


Presentation Description

As organizations continue to compete for top talent, they also seek to retain this talent, especially when in an increasingly competitive environment. This interactive session will showcase how leaders or those who influence others can benefit by ensuring that they and their employees are engaged and inspired to do their best work. An engaged workforce is critical, because having employees who quit and stay, is far worse a problem than employees who quit and leave.

Engagement is a choice to commit extra effort, time, and mental energy to actively and willingly contribute to the company’s success, using your head, heart and hands. I see it as a personal choice, not something a company can impose. An organization cannot create engagement, though they can create the conditions under which engagement can occur. In fact, sustainability, profitability and growth all begin with talent, engaged talent, which makes it even that much more important of a focus. If you want to build a high engagement and inspired workforce, focus on:

1. Trust and integrity                    
2. Job fit                                
3. Clear expectations                   
4. Alignment                       
5. Candid feedback                      

6. Culture
7. Relationship with supervisor
8. Professional development
9. Motivation and recognition
10. Growth Opportunities

Participants will . . .
  • Realize how an effective engagement strategy can greatly enhance the culture, productivity and overall revenue growth of an organization.
  • Learn how to effectively measure the strength of your organization so that you can both determine your current level of engagement and aim to enhance it.
  • Learn and apply the framework of a successful engagement strategy within teams and across the organization, also recognizing that when engagement issues arise, specific tactics can be used to work through and overcome them.
