Discover how to engage employees (and yourself) more effectively.
Most leaders understand that engaged employees are passionate about their jobs and deliver better results, and most of us know what it’s like to either be engaged or disengaged in a workplace where we spend most of our waking hours. Yet, most don’t understand how engagement really works. Maylett introduces you to the five MAGIC keys of employee engagement—Meaning, Autonomy, Growth, Impact, and Connection—and discusses how leaders can help employees achieve higher levels of engagement, while engaging ourselves in the journey as well.
