9:15am-10:30am: How to Put the “Super” In Supervisor-David Lee

Gallup’s research shows that an employee’s supervisor accounts for 70% of an employee’s engagement level. In other words, ALL other factors, like company culture, compensation, leadership, etc COMBINED          account for less than half the impact an employee’s supervisor has on their morale, motivation, and performance.

Therefore, your ability to bring out the best in your employees has a huge impact on how valuable you are to your employer. When supervisors know how to bring out the best in their people, they win, their direct reports win, and their employer wins.

In this presentation, we will explore what behaviors and practices by supervisors make the biggest difference in whether employees care about doing their best work and are able to do their best work.
