This workshop is aimed at individuals with responsibility for directly creating an organisational culture that assesses individual motivation and engagement and ensures that individuals and teams are empowered to deliver results.
What: Leading People
When: Tuesday 8th October, 1:00pm – 4:30pm
Where: Business Innovation Centre, Harry Weston Road, Binley, Coventry, CV3 2TX
Engagement is created from 3 crucial elements:
- The motivation and alignment of people to a common cause
- The desire to contribute more of ourselves
- The support we give to and receive from others.
Managers and leaders cannot directly control the engagement of others. However, they can create the environment where employees and teams motivate and engage themselves.
Research has comprehensively shown that the main drivers that motivate people are:
- Trust in all levels of the organisation
- Alignment of purpose
- Autonomy (giving people more space and responsibility for their work)
- Mastery – everyone wants to improve; the organisation’s job is to help people improve
- Support and encouragement.

We use information from the Gallup Employee Engagement Survey, in particular questions from the Gallup Q12 Index, as a basis for an exploration of what can be done in the organisation to steadily build motivation and engagement.
The theory is simple and well researched, and so the workshop consists of a number of structured activities designed to establish practical steps that will enable the delivery of better business results. This will of necessity include inputs from individuals and teams.
