- Putting together a great team takes time and skill, but even when you've assembled the right players, as the leader, your job is just begun. Now, you've got to figure out what it means to create motivated and engaged 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'll talk about assessing engagement, building engagement, as well as how to look for signs of disengagement.

We'll breakdown engagement into three memorable and actionable categories, great relationships, strong culture, and clear opportunity. We'll talk about how trust, emotional intelligence, fairness and autonomy build great relationships. We'll address elements of a great work culture, including transparency, modeling, and the proper use of rewards. Finally, we'll address how to provide opportunity 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.
