Instructor for this course

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.

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).

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.

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

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

Good ideas but a little too repetitive on some of the topics. seemed a little dated as well on the examples.
