Your Managers are Your Biggest ROI
Today’s episode focuses on the pivotal role of managers and what we can do now to increase engagement and dramatically improve proficiency and results.
“Our managers are where the ‘rubber hits the road’ in terms of our operational success: they sit at the crossroads of profit and loss, client service, risk mitigation, and employee engagement.”
–Peter C. Atherton, PE
“It’s impossible to engage, grow, and inspire others when those responsible are not engaged, growing, or inspired themselves… we need to solve the manager engagement problem if we want to solve the employee engagement problem.”
–Peter C. Atherton, PE
