- Engagement: "On Fire! Energized Together"
When individuals lose their spark, organizations lose their fire. This predicament has a devastating effect on productivity, profitability and company reputation.
But it doesn't have to be that way. Mark's test-driven model of engagement equips people to identify the causes of "flame out" and recognize behaviours and leadership
decisions that act as a fire extinguisher.
Mark kindles the process through the pillars of engagement: clarity, competence, influence and appreciation. As relationships strengthen, trust burns brightly.
Mark shows leaders how to:
- identify behaviors to increase engagement
- re-ignite employee's passion for teamwork, communication and innovation
- build a culture of trust, loyalty and appreciation
- accelerate performance and productivity
- Trust: "Solid Gold: Create a Foundation of Trust"
Trust is the intangible asset in business today. Yet we live in an increasingly suspicious world. Public trust has been eroded by high-profile scandals involving unethical behaviours, fraudulent investment schemes, covert data collection and phone hacking, to name a few. It is becoming increasingly difficult to sustain customer confidence and loyalty in a transparent world where a small mistake can become a big problem.
Mark DeVolder presents a compelling business case for the ways that trust affects the bottom line: a company's reputation, its ability to collaborate and innovate, attract and engage employees and respond quickly.
At the heart of Mark's presentation is this maxim: relationships are based on trust and business is based on relationships.
You will discover how to:
- master essential actions that build high levels of trust
- take the right action quickly to correct a misstep
- recover trust and regain a client
- maintain loyal relationships in business
