The Art of Engagement can be learned by anyone willing to look at communication in a whole new way. It’s not just about acquiring great communication skills and getting your message across and it’s not just about being a good listener. It is about truly engaging and creating an experience instead of just an interaction. This seminar is about connecting with others on a human level. This does not mean getting personal; it means cutting through the surface noise and speaking to the real person in a way that invites them to rise up, respond more honestly, and be more open. True engagement is the missing piece to a cohesive, productive team that works well unsupervised. It is the answer to pettiness in the workplace. True engagement is something that, when mastered, can influence others to change and adapt, change the work environment and, in fact, the entire culture of an organization to that of open communication, transparency, and desire to support and achieve. Everyone yearns to be seen as a valuable person. The art of engagement is a powerful tool for becoming a person of influence.
