Leading Engagement

Leading engagement is matter of working with direction and motivation. It is vital that employees are able to reconcile their own engagement with the purpose, vision and values of the organization. When that which is important for us aligns with that which is important for the organization, we quite naturally take on greater responsibility.

The course is based on Self-Determination Theory (SDT), a theory developed by Edward Deci and Richard Ryan, that is thoroughly verified by research in motivational psychology. This theory shows the connection between employees’ motivational quality and their performance.

Self-Determination Theory shows that engagement leads to at least nine positive outcomes that every organization desires    

  • Better job performance
  • Greater revenue growth
  • Greater commitment to company values
  • Greater loyalty and trust
  • Greater job and compensation satisfaction
  • Deeper learning
  • Fewer physical and health complaints
  • Less emotional exhaustion
  • Greater overall life satisfaction

What do our customers say about us?

“Learning about whole-hearted engagement has given me a wider register to play on in my role as a manager. The course is well-balanced between theory and practice in small groups, and the course facilitators have a deep understanding of the subject and a “coaching” style of teaching. I now have good questions I can ask myself to clarify what I need to be whole-heartedly engaged facing difficult challenges. Now, just a few days after the course, I am already well on my way in implementing what I have learned.”

 Anne-Lise Katle, Project Manager at Atkins Norway AS 

“I found the day learning about leading engagement to be very useful, both in my role as a manager and personally. I gained new insight into what lies behind good, or poor, engagement. It enabled me to identify for myself what is needed and to help my people to take responsibility for their own engagement. The course facilitators are skilled and open. The size of the group created a safe environment, and everyone was able to talk to everyone else, something that created good conditions for learning."
