  • consider shortcomings of current concepts and practices related to employee engagement,
  • uncover hidden sources of workplace disempowerment,
  • receive valuable ideas and tools for diagnosing and removing personal and organizational roadblocks, resulting in increased workplace productivity and satisfaction.
