If the above sounds like your CEO or C-suite, it is not surprising as the vast majority of C-suite executives are left brain types who are more comfortable using logic, detail, numbers, objectivity, and facts (this is why your CEO probably likes to hang around with the CFO). Many of us learning, communications, OD, and HR folks are right brain types more reliant on soft skills, feelings, visuals, and intuition and thus have difficulty convincing executives to make Employee Engagement part of your company's strategic plan.
Invite your C-Suite to join you for an entertaining and fast paced hour by global employee engagement and leadership expert, author, and speaker Bob Kelleher (a former CHRO, EVP of OD, AND COO - who had a seat at the table), as he shares with attendees how to get the C-Suite to embrace employee engagement.
This session will include:
- Latest research to share with your C-Suite that employee engagement DRIVES business results
- Ways the C-Suite can 'walk the talk' to build trust (the number one engagement driver!)
- Specific tools to help the Training / OD / and HR professional boost company performance via engaged employees
- How the C-suite can build a communication protocol that will engage employees AND build a line of sight between the Company's goals and everyone's job
- Why money is not an engagement driver but achievement, recognition, and purpose are
- How to connect your employment brand to your product / service brand to drive both employee and customer engagement
