Chamberlain Among the Mutineers: A Leadership Allegory on Employee Engagement
Registration Closes Friday February 7 at 5PM
This leadership seminar draws on the historical incident of Joshua Chamberlain at Gettysburg during the Civil War when he was told that his unit of 400 men would be "strengthened" by 175 disengaged employees - mutineers - and how he transformed his unit into a formidable force that would enable the Union victory. This historical incident perfectly illustrates the findings of cutting‐edge research from the Government Accountability Office and Dale Carnegie on the drivers of employee engagement and how supervisors can elicit engagement. Participants will be able to draw upon those insights and create action plans to boost engagement within their own team and their larger organization. NOTE: a visit to Gettysburg is not required! More information HERE. Learning objectives include:
•Identify the primary causes of employee disengagement;
•Identify the primary causes of employee engagement;
•Identify strategies for reengaging disengaged employees.
