The Commitment Competency: What Leaders Must Say and Do to Get Employees to Care and Try
Joe Mull, Speaker and Author
What happens in the workplace when everyone is committed? Answer: effort, teamwork, innovation, and more. The most engaged and inspired employees don't get that way by chance. Research tells us that their commitment is triggered by a series of actions and interactions executed by their direct supervisors. In other words, commitment can’t be bought. It can only be earned by leaders who possess the knowledge, skills, and beliefs to engineer the kind of work environment that compels employees to give their all. Drawing on fresh research in employee engagement and workplace psychology, this dynamic, energizing presentation gives senior leaders and front line managers insight into what employees need from their bosses to be at their best, every day. Speaker and author Joe Mull, M.Ed, CSP outlines the kinds of interactions and environment leaders must engineer to cultivate commitment. Your audience will leave inspired and equipped to #bossbetter.
