Course Description:  Not one thing works for all people.  Engagement and motivation are no different. What motivates and inspires one will demotivate another.  Therefore, it is crucial that, leaders and managers take the time to learn their team’s personal preferences in order to appeal to their highest motivations; creating a productive and happy workforce.

Engagement is critical to a properly functioning team or organization in terms of attracting top talent, creating a positive and creative culture as well as retention of top talent.          


Attendees will be able to:

  1. Identify their current level of engagement
  2. Identify what contributes to and detracts from their engagement
  3. State steps to take to increase personal motivation and engagement
  4. Develop a plan to monitor and increase energy levels

Preparing today’s and tomorrow’s leaders with the skills and competencies necessary to be effective, efficient and purpose aligned – leading to greater goal achievement through a more comprehensive view of workforce leadership and its impact on society, as well as organizations.

Currently, the United States has two generations in the workforce (Gen X and Millennials) soon to take the helm of their organizations and have received little-to-no formal or informal leadership development, due to a perceived threat to boomer leaders and an economic perspective that training is a luxury that could not be afforded.

As a result, Gen X and Millennials are woefully under prepared to take on leadership and management roles in replacement of the retiring boomers.  These two external conditions and responses to them have created a true Leadership Crisis.  Leading Maryland has recognized this fact and serves to close the skills gaps in support of Businesses and Leaders across the State of Maryland.

Leading Maryland recognizes, organizations can’t not afford to train their leaders, recognizing their impact on company and employee achievement, as well as bottom line profits and losses.
