About This Course

The push for higher employee engagement isn’t new, and yet it feels woefully out of reach. Improving employee engagement is the need of the hour, but where to start?

In this workshop, participants will learn how to engage with their team, develop trust, promote collaboration, motivate and inspire their teams, and build a “Speak Up” culture.
