Communicating in teams to build employee engagement

May 19, 2016 @ 5:45 pm - 8:00 pm

Get a sneak peek of this presentation before the 2016 IABC World Conference. Come to the Metropolitan Club on the 66th floor of Willis (Sears) Tower for more than a great view of Chicago; hear Steve Ritter’s presentation.

Steve will explain teams that excel have features in common. They invest in a common vision. They value differences as strengths. They use respectful conflict to build trust. They take smart risks to innovate. They adapt to change and reinvest in new circumstances. They hold themselves accountable. This presentation offers a recipe for building employee engagement through teams.

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • – How teams leverage a foundation of communication norms to anchor healthy workplace culture.
  • – How trust and accountability provide a platform for creativity, exploration, discovery and innovation.
  • – How embracing opportunities afforded by change and growth empowers employees to engage in new circumstances and reinvest in the organization.
