Many organizations hire or promote managers based on prior performance, not considering whether those managers have the skills necessary to manage well. In fact, Gallup Corporation found that only one in 10 people have the natural talent set to manage. This suggests that many managers may not have the skill set to engage their employees and drive performance. Gallup data confirms this, noting that managers may account for up to 70% of variance in employee engagement scores across business units. Further, studies have shown that only 34.1% of America’s workforce is currently engaged on the job. Employee engagement affects the bottom line through absenteeism, attrition, safety, customer satisfaction, productivity, and profitability. Given the strong correlation between low employee engagement and poor managing, what can be done to improve both at your organization?

Please join Mel Burt-Gracik as she shares the behaviors and skills uncovered by Gallup that correlated with top performing managers and how their talent for managing translates into high employee engagement. Additionally, participants will assess their own needs from supervisors, explore how to lead up, and set goals to increase the effectiveness of their managing.


Participants will:

  • Learn the 12 competencies top managers possess
  • Understand how to help other employees create a culture of high engagement
  • Assess your top talents as a manager
  • Identify three areas of growth as a manager
  • Create 5 strategies to implement immediately to improve your management style
