Description:Research and our own personal experiences tell us that managers have the single greatest impact on an employee’s effectiveness, motivation, engagement, discretionary effort and retention. As the adage goes, “people don’t leave jobs, they leave managers.” Indiana University developed a new initiative for managers and supervisors that helps them be more successful leaders. We identified four simple yet powerful actions that all employees need their managers and supervisors to do. This session will introduce these four simple actions, examine how they were developed and identify the reasons why they work so well.
