Team Engagement Program

Team Engagement Is the Secret to Leadership Success

We’ve all heard probably the old saying: “People don’t leave jobs. They leave bosses.” That’s because frontline leaders have the most influence over team engagement on a day-to-day basis. 

If the boss is bad, talented people can’t leave fast enough. But what if your frontline leaders know how to drive team engagement? They’ll get top performance. They’ll create a culture of inclusion, and make people valued. Not only that, they’ll develop and retain your next generation of star talent. 

There’s no time to waste. DDI’s proven leadership development program is proven to develop the skills your leaders need to drive team engagement.

Build Leadership Skills that Drive Engagement

DDI’s Boost Engagement and Retention Program helps leaders develop the most critical skills they need to build morale and engagement. Leaders will learn how to: 

  • Respond to the personal and practical needs of their team members 
  • Apply DDI’s five Key Principles to communicate effectively 
  • Provide meaningful, supportive feedback 
  • Uncover what every individual needs to be satisfied and engaged at work 
  • Build trust with their teams 
  • Create an inclusive environment that values every team member’s contribution. 

The result? Managers with strong interpersonal skills who can boost engagement.

Get started on a learning journey

It takes time to build team engagement. DDI’s program takes leaders on a journey to build strong relationships with their teams over time. 

The program includes: 

  • A self-assessment to reflect on strengths and gaps 
  • High-impact workshops focused on communication, inclusion, and engagement 
  • Short digital experiences to cement skills 
  • On-demand tools to sustain and practice learning 

Of course, it’s up to you to decide on the blend of formats you’d like. From the traditional classroom to entirely virtual experiences, we can flex to the format that works best for your team.

Our frontline leaders live the culture and, because there is a large number of them, they have the opportunity to affect so many other people. It creates a snowball effect… it would be easy to lose bits of the culture if not for a program focused on these leaders.
