The power of a change effort is mostly determined by the level of buy-in, motivation, and engagement of employees. Engaging employees is the last component needed to create an environment of change which can be used to change the culture and improve results. It is common that we see a sudden and dramatic improvement in performance right after the Employee Engagement Programs; we call this phenomenon the “pop”.

When to Use
The Employee Engagement programs are delivered once the leaders have been trained and the leadership structure and systems are in place.
This is a customized program. We provide a template for the program and then support the organization in customizing the modules to fit their change objectives.
The Employee Engagement Programs are usually delivered by the top leaders of the organization who are setting an example in implementing the desired changes. In these cases, we provide these leaders with the coaching and support needed to effectively deliver the programs.
Review the Change Strategy
Participants are presented with a clear vision of the desired culture the details of their change strategy, of the role they play, what is expected of them and what support they can expect to receive.
Define “Point B”
Participants are presented with a description of the critical elements that need to be changed. Participants then help define the behaviors needed to both make the desired changes and to achieve the desired culture.
The program develops the mindset and practical skills employees can use the next day to participate in the change effort and begin improving performance.
Q&A Session with Top Leaders
The interaction with the top leaders provides participants with an opportunity to ask critical questions and to determine the real commitment and alignment of the top team to the change effort.
