“Managers are often taught that it is not inside the scope of a manager’s role or appropriate to deal with personal issues. But the research is clear that to ignore a person’s need for meaningful relationships in the workplace is to ignore an essential ingredient for basic motivation, vitality, and sense of well-being at work,” says Susan Fowler, best-selling author and senior consultant at The Ken Blanchard Companies.
Fowler explains that “Relatedness” is a primary nutrient for individuals to thrive in the workplace. In a complimentary webinar later this week, Fowler will show how a focus on strengthening relationships translates into higher morale, engagement and satisfaction at work.
Drawing on research from a wide variety of resources, Fowler will explore what managers and leaders can do to create stronger relationships.
