Studies continue to show that employee engagement in the workplace remains low- around the 30% range.  Low levels of employee engagement have a negative impact on achieving organizational goals, and create a workplace that does not encourage high performance.  During this session, we answer the three key questions of employee engagement:  1) What do we know from evidence-based science?  2) How can I apply that science to increase my personal level of engagement?   3) How can I improve the engagement levels of others?  This course introduces a new model based on positive psychology practices, called the AD-FIT%TM model, that you can apply immediately.

This course provides leaders at all levels with an introduction into the science and practice of employee engagement.  Any manager or leader with a growth mindset can apply this course content to lead individual, group or organizational change in your business.  This content has been distributed to thousands of leaders in governments, private and nonprofit organizations, as well as individuals.

The content of this course is gleaned from thousands of our leadership consulting clients since 1997, and the presenter’s dissertation research on positive psychology.  The goal of this course is to introduce leaders like you to world-class techniques so that you gain competitive advantage.

This course was very poorly structured. The slides rarely matched the message at hand and in fact the most important slide (in my opinion) “E is for Engagement” was located on the Handout pdf only. The beginning and ending of each section was the exact same recorded message of 30-60 seconds. I did not hear any true practical application ideas to improve engagement. That could be due to the fact that he doesn’t stay on topic and can go on many different tangents without having the ability to explain how those tangent thoughts correlate back to the topic at hand. Which does not help the viewer to stay engaged at all. In fact I fully admit that I fell asleep and had to re-watch the last section of “How do I help others” which still left me questioning “How DO I help others be more engaged”?

There was very little to be learned if anything at all. I was disappointed in not finding any concrete measures to increase employee engagement (i.e. Does handing out donuts every Friday increase employee morale? What about on Mondays? If we serve whiskey at the workplace, would employees complain less about their salary?)

There is repetition of some content which, at first, is confusing to those familiar with other Illumeo courses. However, it becomes evident that this repetition is meant to reinforce a couple key actions that can be taken to make a measurable difference in employee engagement. Hooray!

I am always looking for ways to increase employee engagement, and this lesson helped give reasons why it is so important, which will help when attempting to get all leadership on board with changing the company culture.

I thought this would be an easy refresher course, but I actually learned several things as a result of taking this class. The instructor did a wonderful job of explaining the importance of engaging our workforce.

The information was great and very useful. The presenter seemed to use the course as an advertisement for his services, which is not bad, but sometimes distracting to the material being presented (in my opinion).

The information provided in this course was quite useful. Engagement is obviously important but this course provides evidence as to why it's important and the impact that it can have on the organization.

I'm sorry but I learned very little about engagement. The course was poorly structured and the closing of each section was repetitious. Frequently the charts did not match the message.

Tone of class was not interesting. Will probably not look for other classes with this instructor. Now that I see that he is a PhD it seems right that he presented more like a professor.

I'm walking away from this course without a single idea on employee engagement. Parts were very repetitive. Very scientific and not true practical application ideas.

Wow. Not what I was expecting or really looking for. i don't think my idea of employee engagement is the same as Dr. Gray's idea of employee engagement.

Doug provided good insight to today's work culture and employee expectations. I enjoyed listening to him speak; he kept the topic light but interesting.

Nice course. But this course seemed to be more of an advertisement for the instructor's consulting business. Nonetheless, helpful material was shared.

This was good material, but I was not anticipating such a scientific dive. I think if I would have anticipated this, it would have been higher rated.

Great model to focus on a goal to improve both employee performance and satisfaction. Other People Matter is an excellent mindset to have.

Good information, but too much repetition of the same exact words in each section. More self promotion than I usually see in these courses.

Different type of class. Was more of a psychology class and a bit new age thinking then your standard corporate CE class.

This presentation was a little hard to follow. Reliance on familiarity with some of the material kept me somewhat focused.

Video included repeated parts. I'm not sure if this was intentional or not, but I saw the introduction several times.
