Disengagement is destroying your bottom line!

Disengaged employees cost the American economy up to $350 billion per year in lost productivity.

In Today's world, building an engaged culture for organizations with a large number of  entry level positions is more challenging than ever.  There is a trust gap between leaders and individual performers. In fact, according to Gallup, only 1 in 3 employees strongly agree that they trust the leadership in their organizations. When there is employee disengagement and a lack of trust, there is constant tension between leaders and individual performers.

WE CAN HELP!

  • Hard to fill positions

  • High levels of turnover

  • Active disengagement

"I feel like this is a course that everyone could benefit from. It not only focuses on dealing with others but also coming to terms with who you are as a person and how you like to interact with others. You can use this in life as a parent, as a coach, as a business leader, or just in your own personal relationships.”
