The Art of Engagement

The Art of Engagement
Recently challenged by a client to come up with a different way to present deep and lasting engagement for a diverse audience which needed to be inspired to change, we reviewed the key question: how do you inspire real engagement in end learners which leads to a PROVEN change in behavior which is applied to their work (and life)?
We start conversations with clients by getting right to the point.
Who are you trying to engage right now but not getting through and what do you see as the barrier?
HOW are you inspiring them to be the most that they can be?

Discover Nine Proven Learning Principles 
In this course end learners will ENGAGE in interactive social learning activities around:
  • The new leader’s job is to awake possibility in other people
The leaders is the relentless architect for the possibilities that others can be.
The new era of leadership has to do with ENROLLING people.
You cannot comment people to do it; they must become enrolled by their own choice.
To spark possibility in people gives you ALL OF THEM.
  • Enroll every voice in the vision
Enroll individuals from every role in the organization.
When leadership is defined not as a position you hold but as A WAY OF BEING, you can discover that you can lead from wherever you are.
  • Recognize downward spiral conversations and enroll people in the journey to engagement and possibility (growth, success)
Everyone is interested in leadership, the questions is what kind of leadership is the most effective?  How do you awake people to be the most that they can be?
  • Look for shining eyes
How to deeply engage others.
This new era of leadership is about relationships; and it is about conversations.  What is this conversation I am having with people and how is it affecting the other person I am having a conversation with?
  • Who are we being?
We don’t talk about what we should be as leaders we are talking about what we are BEING
WHO ARE WE BEING as leaders?  As peers and colleagues?
Are we inspiring contribution and sharing, problem solving to reach new levels of success?
Are we dominating people or are we inspiring them to be the most that they can be?
  • Everyone Gets an “A” (give people a possibility to live into not an expectation to live up to)
The practice of getting an “A” represents what a person can see in themselves if they have no fears and no barriers.  Creating an environment of an “A” is a totally different paradigm; it is the paradigm of possibility.
  • Remember Rule #6!
Leaders need to remind themselves (consistently) not to take themselves too seriously
  • The Conductor Does Not Make a Sound
The conductor of an orchestra does not make a sound.
He depends for his power on his ability to MAKE OTHER PEOPLE POWERFUL.
The job of the conductor of an orchestra is to awaken possibility in other people.

Does Your Organization Radiate Possibility? 8 Simple Questions

Katalina Groh

Ongoing Trend in Low Employee Engagement

According to Gallup, U.S. employee engagement hit an average of 32.4% in February of this year. The concern which remains is, that’s the highest it has been in 3 years. Why are employees so disengaged from their work? The blame doesn’t solely fall on the leadership or the employees themselves; true engagement requires enrollment from everyone in an organization. We have developed our own short 8-question survey to explore this phenomenon further.

Please take this short survey, which should take only a few minutes. In a couple of weeks we will post our analysis of the results. Does Possibility Radiate in Your Organization?
