SPEAKER: Burgess Levin, M.B.A.
As much as thirty percent of your workforce can become more productive, increasing the overall effectiveness of the organization and adding to engagement levels. "Progress at Work" is a powerful and fresh concept that managers quickly grasp and understand, and it puts a fresh face and new energy into processes aimed at making your organization more effective.
In this session you will see why current measures of engagement over-weight the power of the environment at the expense of performance. Participants will benefit from cutting edge research (based on over 6,000 survey responses from 16 different organizations) on the power of "Progress at Work" and come to see it as both separate from and complementary to engagement.
Specific findings on the drivers of "Progress" and the barriers that obstruct progress will be presented, and a framework will be provided on how to implement the principles of "Progress at Work" in your organization.
After attending this session, participants will understand:
- The principles associated with Progress at Work and how they are distinguished from and complementary to engagement
- The drivers of “Progress” and the obstacles that are the most significant barriers to “Progress"
- A framework for applying these principles in their organization
