WHEN: Thursday, May 22, 2014 2:00 PM EST – 40 Minutes
SPEAKER: Stephen J. Meyer, Rapid Learning Institute

Why are we giving you free admission to this webinar? Because we’d like to introduce you to the Compliance & Management Rapid Learning Center – an online training system to help busy leaders sharpen critical management skills. By attending this webinar you’ll not only get some practical ideas to improve employee engagement in your workplace, you’ll also be given access to a collection of online training modules on engagement – perfect for sharing with your team. This video series are among the many programs you’ll find in the Leadership & Management Rapid Learning Center library. We hope you enjoy the webinar and your free trial.

COURSE DESCRIPTION: Every manager would love to say, “All of my employees are fully engaged in their jobs. They love what they do. They give 110 percent to every task and bring great passion to their work.”

But reality is that some workers don’t live up to that ideal. Sure, they show up, punch the time clock and do what is minimally required to complete their work. But they’re not really putting their hearts into their job. They’re seat warmers who come to work for the sole purpose of collecting a paycheck.

It’s easy to say this is an employee problem. These slackers just don’t have what it takes to get ahead. But more often than not, disengaged workers are the product of a leadership problem. Most workers truly want to be engaged. Nobody wakes up in the morning and says, “I want to do a crappy job today”. Something is driving them to disengage.

In this webinar, Stephen J. Meyer, CEO of the Rapid Learning Institute will show you what it takes to earn high levels of employee engagement, how engagement affects the bottom line, and how to avoid the management behaviors that cause employees to disengage.

You’ll learn:

  • What employee engagement really means and why it’s so powerful
  • Who owns the problem if engagement is low
  • How re-engaging a disengaged worker can triple productivity
  • A powerful concept that can reshape your approach to engagement
  • Four behavioral triggers that cause disengagement
  • Three destructive narratives that spring up in organizations, and how leaders can create counter-narratives
  • The power of validation – and why it’s just as important as a paycheck

Those who attend this presentation will also receive free access to a collection of training videos on employee engagement. These concise 6- to 10-minute programs are a great way to transfer what you learn in this program to other leaders in your organization.
