Workshop: Owning Your Own Engagement

There are many benefits for a supervisor to have an engaged workforce. Creating a stronger culture of engagement has shown to improve employee retention, well-being, and job satisfaction while decreasing absenteeism.
But, as a supervisor, how can YOU help to create a culture that stresses the importance of engagement via recognition, praise, and professional growth? 

This session we will review what engagement means, ways to conduct an engagement conversation with your team, tips and tricks to recognize your workforce, ideas on how to give feedback, communications, and will demonstrate meaningful ways to help your employees to explore their own engagement.

Workshop: Engagement Action Planning

There are many benefits for a supervisor to have an engaged workforce. Creating a stronger culture of engagement has shown to improve employee retention, well-being, and job satisfaction, while decreasing absenteeism.
But, as a supervisor, how can YOU help to create a culture that stresses the importance of engagement via recognition, connection, support, and professional growth?

This session we will review what engagement means, demonstrate a few ways to conduct an engagement conversation with your team (and know how to create an action plan based on those meetings), brainstorm/learn tips to support the Q12 questions, and will discuss meaningful ways to help your employees to internalize and explore their own engagement.
Our goals during this session will be:

  • To create a strong understanding of engagement so that you will be able to communicate that knowledge to others.
  • To prime you to conduct a discussion with your team about your engagement results and know how to create an action plan based on those meetings.
  • To equip you with at least one tip/trick to support the Q12 questions from an interactive brainstorming activity with your peers.
  • To empower you to assist individual team members in understanding how to internalize what engagement means to them.
