Putting together a great team takes time and skill. But even when you've assembled the right players, as the leader your job has just begun. Now you've got to figure out what it means to create motivated and engage employees. I'm not talking about merely satisfied employees; you can be satisfied but not productive. To be engaged means to be interested and committed, both to the work and the organization. In this course, we will talk about assessing engagement building engagement, as well as how to look for signs of disengagement.

We will break down engagement into three memorable and actionable categories: great relationships, strong culture, and clear opportunity. We will talk about how trust, emotional intelligence, fairness, and autonomy build great relationships. We will address elements of a great world culture, including transparency, modeling, and the proper use of rewards. Finally, we will address how to provide opportunity for by using tactics such as career planning, coaching, and training.

Great employees are terrific; the only thing better is great employees who are fully motivated and engaged.
