2:00 PM Master your influence - 7 Keys to Employee Engagement

Henry Ford once reportedly posed this question: “Why is it every time I ask for a pair of hands, it comes with a brain attached?” Contrast this to Taiichi Ohno’s quote, “People don’t go to Toyota to work, they go there to think.”

The important difference is having a highly-engaged versus a disengaged workplace. Consider these facts:
• 3.5 million people in the USA quit their jobs every month
• 67% of employees report feeling disengaged from their jobs on a daily basis
• 76% of employees report “feeling tired” at work (15% have actually fallen asleep!)

Lean is hard enough; trying to do so with an unmotivated, tired, overwhelmed and overworked team is impossible.

In this interactive program, we expand upon the real reasons people are resistant to change and what you can take action on immediately to create organizational change for the better. We’ll share proven tools and techniques that will help you garner support for your Lean transformation, giving you the absolute best chance for sustained Lean success.
