People Glue: Maximising Performance & Productivity with Employee Driven Engagement

Employee Engagement For People Leaders & Managers

This employee engagement training program increases people leaders’ ability to confidently maximise productivity and performance by fast-tracking employee engagement, motivation & productivity, simply and easily.

Based on Ian Hutchinson's book ‘People Glue: Employee Engagement & Retention Solutions That Stick’, this employee engagement approach is the key to creating a self-responsible culture and unlocking workforce potential, with people leaders as the catalyst.

Not everyone is a born leader. Most people don’t leave organisations, they leave leaders, therefore it is an organisation’s responsibility to ensure that the people leaders & managers they are trusting with their workforce, have the skills, tools and resources to unlock their people’s potential, maximising engagement and motivation, simply and easily.


Learning Outcomes

This program will help transform your people leaders’ understanding of what motivates their employees and will dramatically increase their ability to:

  • Implement Employee Driven Engagement (EDE) simply and easily, with just 2% investment of their time
  • Understand the vital 7 engagement drivers that really count, and what to do about them
  • Learn how 80% of employee engagement can be driven by the employees themselves
  • Identify the best low cost ways of engaging talent in constantly changing times
  • Reverse the ‘whinge entitlement culture’ and replace it with a self-responsible workforce
  • Learn quick win tools and systems to simply and easily implement
  • Develop their very own Personal Engagement Plan (PEP) so they, as leaders/managers, are as motivated as possible
  • Outline a customised Team Engagement Plan (TEP) to immediately help maximise team productivity & performance
  • Embed implementation with optional post program e learning and/or e programs

This People Glue program ideally works hand in hand with the Self-Leadership Program for individual employees. It is also available for People Leaders and Managers as a mobile friendly eLearning course.

Employee engagement speaker Ian has run a number of employee engagement programs for Westpac & BT over the years. His Employee Driven Engagement work is a new generation philosophy for insightful organisations.  His programs, e learning & training courses have been excellent.

Self Leadership: Unlocking Your Potential In Work & Life

Employee Engagement For Employees & Individuals

This employee engagement training program is personally inspiring and helps empower individuals to unlock their potential and maximise their performance and productivity in their work, life and personal finances, now and in the future. It equips individuals to take more control of their own motivation, creating a self-responsible workforce.

This ‘self-responsibility approach’ to employee engagement and motivation is an innovative, employee-centric solution for both personal and organisational success.

Clarity Creates Control

Increasingly we live in a world where we are all too busy and constantly feel like we are all being asked to do ‘more with less’. In this environment everyone needs to get more clarity around what they can control, rather than waste time and energy on what they can’t control, so they can take more responsibility and be more resilient.

We know that clarity creates control and control empowers both personal and organisational employee engagement success.

Rarely do we get time out to just stop and focus on our self – our life, our work, our finances, our motivation … and what we really want? This employee engagement training program provides the opportunity to stop, refresh and refocus with practical systems, strategies and tools – and the good news is, it’s all about the individual!

Learning Outcomes

All participants in this employee engagement training will be able to:

  • Create their own Personal Engagement Plan (PEP) for improving their motivation & engagement by as much as 80%
  • Understand that there is much more that they can control than they ever thought possible
  • Take more responsibility for their work, life and personal finances
  • Activate quick-win strategies for improving job fulfilment by as much as 90%
  • Develop strategies and development plans for more informed discussions with their manager in the review process.

This Self Leadership program ideally works hand in hand with the People Glue Leaders Program, and is also available for individuals & employees as a mobile friendly eLearning course.

Ian Hutchinson of Life by Design presented on Self-Leadership - it was the highlight of the conference & I am already seeing the results. He was a passionate & engaging speaker with a wealth of knowledge on the subjects of employee engagement & personal development.
