Training tools for developing great people skills.
Itís logical to think that an engaged employee is a productive employee. But did you know that the ability to engage employees goes beyond just job satisfaction? Itís a competitive strategy. As MGM Hospitality President and CEO Gamal Aziz recently told Business Week, ďImagine taking 10,000 employees, and each and every one of them wanting to give more. That's really the difference between [us and] a company that has its employees just punching the clock and trying to get through the day."
Research proves it. Engaged employees are more satisfied, more productive, and less likely to leave. There are benefits for the organization in the marketplace as well. Gallup reports that engaged organizations have 3.9 times the growth rate of those with lower engagement within the same industry.

The leader uses a series of open-ended questions that are contained within a sequential, five-level framework, each representing a different focus. Modules can be used in one sitting or broken up into two or more sessions.
The ENGAGE Card System provides leaders with Self-Assessment and Planning Sheets to prepare them for the exercise. It also includes Recap sheets that serve as a summary and action plan for both the leader and the employee as they complete each step.
The ENGAGE Card System has many applications, including:
