Highly engaged employees can move an organization from good to great—conversely, lowered engagement can reduce productivity and hinder an organization’s ability to reach minimum goals.

According to Gallup, Inc.’s State of the American Workplace: 2010-2012 report, 70% of America’s workforce is either not engaged (52%) or actively disengaged (18%) - leaving the bulk of productivity, necessary for corporate growth, to be done by 30% of the workforce.

Making employee engagement a part of an organization’s overall strategy is as important as the emphasis placed on growth and profit. This course will help organizational leaders ensure that their employees are actively engaged in their work.

-Reflect on the ways that "Disney does it" and create an action plan to engage your employees.

-Team leaders

-Human Resources Professionals



-Performance Coaches

Outcomes of this Course:

-Learn effective strategies for elevating engagement among your team.
