Radical (re)Engagement – Ignite Passion and Performance in Your Team with the Neuroscience of Engagement 

What do all great companies have in common? A highly engaged workforce.

Every employee starts a new job the same way - with enthusiasm and commitment. Many companies put a lot of focus on engagement in the onboarding days but are often not successful at maintaining engagement throughout the entire employee journey. Research tells us that job satisfaction begins to decrease just six months after beginning a new job or starting with a new employer!  

Radical (re)Engagement is a program to help company leaders understand what their employees really need to feel engaged. Leaders will learn how to use the neuroscience of engagement to (re)ignite the passion for work in both themselves and their teams.
