Level Up: Misunderstood or Mismanaged

November 20, 2019, 8:00am-9:30am, Crowne Plaza Hotel, Warwick, RI
The relationship between managers and employees is critical to retention and engagement. A Gallup study reported that 50% of Americans have left a job to “get away” from their manager at some point in their career. This same study reports that the manager accounts for at least 70% of the variance in employee engagement. A strong and effective relationship between a manager and employee requires understanding and being understood on many levels. While most managers and employees focus on understanding goals, priorities, and methods, what is often missed is understanding strengths, styles and perspectives. When employees and managers misunderstand each other, employees feel mismanaged and managers feel misunderstood. So, what can be done to bridge the gap.
