To be highly engaged and effective at work, you need to have the right mix of talents, strengths and passion for your job, as well as the right environment in which to do it. Review the role of talents and strengths for tapping into intrinsic motivation and creating engagement. Discuss culture and workspace (using the concepts in "Change Your Space, Change Your Culture," by Rex Miller, Mabel Casey and Mark Konchar), including alternate work strategies and how these are key to employee engagement and organizational success.
Creating senior management buy-in is critical to success. Hear how others have gained support and executive champions.   Think about your talents and the ideal work environment for them, and better understand how your needs will be different for co-workers and employees. Gain a new way to apply work strategies to the unique needs of each employee.
Join Mr. Miller in the Marketplace at 9:00 am for a book signing of his book, "Change Your Space, Change Your Culture and The Commercial Real Estate Revolution."
