Course Description

This webinar will focus on two key behaviors that will help to increase employee engagement. They are Empowerment and Work/Life Balance.

Employees just want to be able to do their jobs. A leader empowers their employees by providing them encouragement, tools necessary for their jobs, authority to make decisions and giving them guidance and direction to succeed in their roles, without micromanaging them. Giving your employees this type of power utilizes their talents and creativity to the fullest capacity. By giving away power, we create great power in others and our organization.

Work/Life Balance is reality! In these days of immediate availability of information through technology, we cannot seem to get away from work. Work/life balance increases engagement in a team. Allowing flexibility in the workplace is key to supporting work/life balance. Attention to balancing professional lives and family lives is key to the health and well-being of everyone. Happier, healthier employees are more productive and more engaged!
