Session Description:

For years, our organizations have been investing time, money and energy into engaging our employees based on the promise that engagement drives results. But, many organizations report that despite their best efforts, engagement just hasn't delivered as expected.

While engaging our employees is critical, it turns out that engagement isn't enough. Engagement without accountability is chaos. It is the organizations who cultivate a culture of personal accountability who are truly winning. It's when engagement and accountability meet that breakthrough performance occurs.

In this dynamic, provocative and groundbreaking presentation, you will learn to see the science of employee engagement in a completely new way. You will understand why the way we have historically measured employee engagement is fundamentally flawed. You will discover that many of the ways we have been working to drive employee engagement may be actually hurting the company's performance. And, most importantly, you'll learn what to do about it. You will be introduced to the concept of Reality-Based Engagement where accountability and engagement intersect to produce awesome results. This will include some practical guidance for how to cultivate the power of personal accountability within your organization.
