Three steps to higher engagement

Helping employees develop a clear and compelling view of their path forward in the organization is at the heart of keeping employees engaged and motivated through change. And yet, many leaders find these conversations uncomfortable or challenging, so they avoid them.

  • Ask effective questions to assess their people’s interests & motivations, current performance, aspirations and next step.
  • Use a toolkit with their favourite questions and actions to help their people determine their starting point, set goals, and commit to reaching them.
