Description

Utilizing a positive—rather than punitive—approach to helping you become internally motivated for success, this Workbook, used as part of a Go Positive workshop, reviews the material presented in the Workshop and involves you in well-designed exercises that give you the tools to ensure a deeper, more long-lasting level of engagement and loyalty in your workplace. Through the workshop, you will gain:

  • A heightened awareness of what it takes to increase employee engagement;
  • An amplified focus on the key priorities that must become aligned to achieve corporate goals;
  • An increased activity level on the high-return behaviors that generate improved engagement and productivity

Based on the most recent scientific, behavioral, and psychological research and the workshop authors' collective, 60-plus years of experience fostering positive attitudes, the Go Positive: Lead to Engage workshop gives you the resonant answer to the question: How can I maximize the attitudes—and ultimately, the performance—of my employees, even amidst very chaotic and uncertain times?
