This experience teaches managers five tactics for boosting engagement by giving employees more agency over their work, while providing guidance that builds their confidence.

By communicating with compassion, managers can better connect with their employees and keep them committed to the organization. In this experience, managers learn seven specific language shifts they can make away from an overly analytical or critical communication style to one that is rooted in authentic connection and fosters a safe and honest work environment.
