Leaders want employees who are happy, productive and invested in the organization’s future.

Hear about those needs and the fundamentals we use to support confident and engaged employees from Leader Coach and employee engagement expert, Dr. KK Owen. Today, KK and Janet discuss what leaders can do to increase confidence and engagement on their team – and what we might be doing that causes employee engagement to decrease.

- How are low performers demotivating high-performing employees?
- What tools and strategies help leaders increase employee engagement and confidence?
- What undermines employee confidence and engagement in our organizations?
