About the Topic:

Research from the Gallup organization shows that on average, the American workforce is only 33% engaged, 49% disengaged and 18% actively disengage. The people who are disengaged offer poor customer service, increase absenteeism, erode the bottom line and break the spirit of co-workers.

The answer lies in authentic leadership that builds buy-in and trust. Conversation Literacy means having of the skills necessary to manage conversations for engagement, honesty, authenticity and productivity.
