A few years ago, I interviewed Kevin Kruse for his book Employee Engagement is for Everyone. Kevin is the author of several books, one of which hit the New York Times best seller list. Kevin writes a weekly leadership column for Forbes, and was an Inc. 500 entrepreneur.
When we talked, I immediately liked Kevin’s humorous, pragmatic outlook on leadership and have followed his work ever since. (Check out the People Equation blog series on employee engagement that I wrote for the release of Kevin’s book. )
I’m writing this post because Kevin is holding a rare public workshop and certification opportunity on employee engagement. He has opened up registration for a live workshop in Philadelphia on December 6th and 7th, 2016. This is the first time he’s ever opened up his training to the public—it’s the same workshop and materials being used at places like SAP, HP, Burger King, IBM, CubeSmart, Aria Healthcare, Farm Bureau Insurance, General Dynamics, Schindler Elevator, True Value and many others.
You can learn more about this program here.
The first day (Dec 6) will be a public workshop open to any manager who wants to increase the engagement of their team members. The second day (Dec 7) will be a certification session for anyone that wants to master the workshop curriculum so they can facilitate this workshop in their own organization.
This leadership workshop is based on survey research of 10 million workers in 150 countries and on Kevin’s own experience as an Inc. 500 executive. In this survey, Kevin discovered the top four drivers of employee engagement and at the workshop, he’s going to teach you how to use them to unlock massive emotional commitment on your team.
I encourage you to check out the program if you want to learn from a person who’s actually done the hard work of building an engaged workforce. He has a lot of hilarious stories about what works (and what doesn’t!)
