#2 – Igniting Passionate Performance

Did you know that 83% of U.S. gross domestic product comes from services or information which are created and delivered by people?

The challenge for leaders is revealed in a Gallup poll showing that only 26% of U.S. employees are fully engaged at any time. On the other end of the spectrum, 19% of employees are actively disengaged, meaning they intentionally act in ways that negatively impact their organizations. The annual cost nationwide to employ this actively disengaged group exceeds $300 billion.

Your people and the performance they deliver are the defining competitive advantage for your organization.

Your leaders are the key to engaging employees minds and hearts so they deliver value for your organization.
