Getting Beyond the Busy – Engaging Yourself and Those You Serve


YES! You are very busy. And YES, it feels like you’re in the “faster – faster – faster” gear of getting things done. Let’s step on the brake and together explore our realities of how we can make some positive change. This high-energy and interactive program gets you thinking and gets you moving to understand real engagement strategies to build cultures where people feel they belong, they are safe, they matter, and work is meaningful. Quiet Quitting and Job Jumping are real. We need to commit to build cultures where connection comes before content. Get ready to show up and have fun. You won’t just sit and listen, you’ll be engaged with others diving into motivations, intention, engagement and resiliency.


Learner Objectives:

  • Identify key indicators that move people to disengage
  • Choose those strong Host-Attitude practices that welcome others and build trust.
  • Understand what really motivates individuals to continue to participate and engage.
  • Articulate those people and practices that make you a better professional
