How do we solve for the problem of disengaged teams? Kristen Gallagher, CEO of Edify, a learning strategy consultancy, believes “great learning experiences can empower employees and make teams more effective and connected.” The results from the 2016 Gallop poll concur; “boosting engagement involves focused efforts on complex elements that drive day-to-day performance -- including role clarity, opportunities to develop, and feedback and progress discussions.”

Rapidly shifting organizations and change fatigue can leave employees feeling disenfranchised or frustrated. In this workshop-style talk, we will focus on how delivering a great team learning experience can connect, energize and drive better results. You will learn several key development activities you can build into your leadership portfolio to motivate and grow your team. These can be used as a manager or a team member.

  • Experience activities that will help you scale your team
