    For three decades, Jerry Roberts has been a strong voice for leadership, best practice for managers, and overall workplace transformation.  He has trained over 15,000 people through Guam Training, with a strong emphasis on helping managers grow skills that enable organization to achieve their goals.  He has produced over a dozen leadership events.  He has also written some 25 training courses and has published over 1,500 articles and commentaries.  Robert is heard every morning at 7:20am on The Point’s Ray Gibson Show (93.3 FM), delivering an upbeat three-minute commentary – “The Extra Point” – that focuses on key workplace issues.  His ideas and strategies can also be found every Tuesday in “The WorkZone” column in the Guam Daily Post. 

    Engagement is more than just an industry buzzword to us.  HR teams chase it daily.  High engagement equals high retention.  We know that workers who are excited about their job deliver far better results, are a positive example to others, and stay with us longer. 

    Yet, research indicates that about seven out of 10 workers are disengaged.  Why is it that the overwhelming majority of people in the workplace are not excited?  We see it and if we can see disengaged employees, our customers and business partners see them too.

    In this highly interactive session we will discuss what workers really want, when engagement begins, and how to provide your employees with a sense of purpose.  We'll explore the role of the manager (at all levels) and how they either help engagement grow or suffocate it.  Making workers want to show up with a sparkle in their eye and a spring in their step is not a spectator sport. It takes effort, and that's every day. The good news is that it is definitely within our reach.

    This is NOT a keynote speech.  It's a workshop, with the emphasis on work.  Come prepared.
