How often have you heard: “I wish my boss would take this training!” Most first-time leaders lack formal leadership experience and are often left to sink or swim without strong role models or much help from their direct boss. How can you build the skills of managers so they can better support the development of their direct reports? How can you gain buy-in and involve them to help model and reinforce skills to boost “stickiness”? Join this webcast where we’ll present ways managers can engage, excite, and encourage leadership development, as well as steps to build shared responsibility and accountability between the leader and his or her manager.
Highly engaged employees help to build and sustain a culture where people want to work and are excited to deliver great results. In return, employees have a positive impact on our relationships with customers, suppliers and communities. At Ingersoll Rand, they understand, appreciate and embrace their differences and use these strengths to continuously improve their business. In 2012, Ingersoll Rand rapidly deployed The Ingersoll Rand Leader: Engaging Your Employees (EYE) training to a global audience and found that leaders attending the training session had an increase in engagement scores two times higher than their counterparts who did not attend the program. To enhance the support the managers, the company also created an on-line and simple support site that highlighted just a few critical tools and activities managers could take, aligned with content from EYE. To leverage the leader’s role in engagement, they also worked to improve engagement by providing coaching to help managers engage employees on what matters most to them and focus local accountability to drive more tailored and meaningful actions.
In this session, learn more about Ingersoll Rand’s efforts to grow engagement, hear more about the crucial role played by leaders, and how their formula for success could be applied inside your organization.
