The pace of change is changing the game of business, and leadership. Those who know how to make rapidly make sense of these changes are the big winners in the new world of work.
Every business must now modernize, digitize, and transform. A lasting transformation is impossible without employee engagement. Engagement is the name of the game if the goal is to truly transform.
The act of inviting is an act of leadership that puts the receiver in charge of what happens next. The leader who replaces delegation with invitation can safely and pragmatically raise levels of employee engagement and overall business performance. Well-structured invitations to engage from executive leadership create the fertile conditions for real employee engagement, real self-management and real transformation.
The inviting leaders are the forward-thinking leaders who are making a real difference in this new world of work.
What’s needed is a way to quickly identify, understand and then acquire these essential new leadership skills.
In this session, we will do exactly that. We will discover how to leverage the power of invitation to quickly motivate and engage almost everyone across the whole enterprise.
In this session, we will discover how to
