Listening, authenticity & measurement … why they should matter to IC professionals in 2017

We spend a lot of time working with and talking to IC profs in a cross section of organisations.

Here’s our take on what’s on their minds as 2017 unfolds … along with some articles you may find useful from us and other specialists in the world of IC and engagement.

Listen

Help leaders to listen to their employees and act on what they hear … it’s essential to improve engagement levels.

Engage 4 Success live and breathe engagement, so here’s their take on listening.

Be authentic

Encourage the leadership team to cut the power talk, speak from the heart and walk the walk … authenticity is one of the biggest drivers of trust.
