"IGNITE: 3 Myths About Building Powerful Relationships"
Research shows that 30% of employee engagement is related to the personality of the employee and a whopping 70% is in the hands of the leaders and managers. 70%! If employee engagement is so heavily reliant on leaders and managers, then relationships between leaders/managers and employees should be a top priority in every organization.
Peter will shed light on three myths about relationships inside organizations, and propose some best practices for turning relationships into a driver of great results.
MYTH #1: RELATIONSHIPS ARE THE CONCERN OF INDIVIDUALS, NOT ORGANIZATIONS
MYTH #2: RELATIONSHIPS REQUIRE THE ‘RIGHT’ PERSONALITIES TO GEL
MYTH #3: GOOD RELATIONSHIPS FORM BY GETTING TO KNOW THE OTHER PERSON
