All of our lives are full of moments, moments of change that we learn from day after day. 2020 has proved to be no exception. To enable long-lasting learnings, we need to learn from the moments that matter and go beyond what is most commonly done to secure employee engagement, loyalty and productivity. All organisations are on a journey of change due to external influences and as business leaders, we need to draw out those moments and understand where we need to focus our attention to genuinely establish cultures in which our people thrive and perform at their best. Within this session, Yetunde will align her recent book ‘Beyond Engagement’ with the ethos around there always will be winners and losers in every situation but if you focus on the small things that could truly make a difference, the ‘moments’ will become less of a moment and more of a journey and the very results we crave will become more easily within reach.
