Presenter: Vicki Hess
Talk to managers today and they’ll tell you that trying to keep employees engaged is like a roller coaster ride with too many ups and downs or that they feel like they’re on a merry-go-round, repeating the same things over and over and getting nowhere. When did work start to feel like a not so amusing amusement park and what can you do to get out of the “fun house”? In this webinar, Vicki Hess, RN, MS, Certified Speaking Professional, reveals the ups and downs that influence or detract from employee engagement. Vicki shares strategies that you can implement to create an environment which promotes a sense of personal ownership using her proprietary Partnership Protocol™, which she describes in her book, The Nurse Manager’s Guide to Hiring, Firing & Inspiring (Sigma Theta Tau Nursing Honorary, April 2010).
After the webinar you will be able to:
- Define the employee’s role and your role in engagement and motivation.
- List actions that you can do more of and less of to overcome motivation stumbling blocks and create enhanced employee engagement.
- Using the Partnership Protocol, create a five step Engagement Execution Plan for working with your staff.
