Appreciative Leadership: Enhancing Employee Engagement


The definition of employee engagement differs from one organization to another.  This program presents a great opportunity to figure what engagement really means for a certain organization and how to best develop, implement, improve and sustain employee engagement in the workplace. 

The world has changed a lot! The best approaches to leadership in the past may not be the best for today.

This course is designed to provide an understanding of appreciative leadership as an approach to enhancing employee engagement.  While traditional leadership focuses on problem solving, appreciative leadership gives emphasis on the strengths-based approach, that is, learning from what is working well and further developing it for the future thus bringing positive experiences and success to the individual, team and organization.
