Most organizations suffer from the insidious attitudes of “It’s not up to me” and “I better keep my head down.” While people often keep these predispositions to themselves to avoid beeing seen as lacking in commitment, the issue is not whether people are voicing these stances but the fact that they are being this way.
What does it take to move people from apathy, resignation, cynicism — or, at best, compliance — to a mindset of “Our success is up to me (or us), and I will do what it takes for us to win?” And what would your organization look like if everyone came to work with that point of view — at least most of the time?
In this 90-minute interactive keynote, Josh Leibner, co-author of The Power of Strategic Commitment: Achieving Extraordinary Results through TOTAL Alignment and Engagement, will give numerous examples of organizations that have galvanized their associates around a bold, compelling future. The topics addressed include:
- What must leaders do to transform apathy and resignation into commitment and ambition?
- What are the primary ways leaders fail when trying to build a culture of engagement?
- How can something as squishy as engagement be measured and monitored over an extended period of time?
- How do you account for previous attempts at engagement that have foundered?
- What are the best ways to deal with those individuals who refuse to get on board?
