SPRINGVILLE, UTAH, USA – June 8, 2020 – DecisionWise, the global leader in employee experience consulting, announced the release of the ENGAGEMENT MAGIC® online training course. Based on research found in the award-winning book ENGAGEMENT MAGIC: Five Keys for Engaging People, Leaders, and Organizations, the ENGAGEMENT MAGIC online training provides managers and employees an in-depth understanding of the 5 MAGIC Keys (Meaning, Autonomy, Growth, Impact, and Connection.) By offering this training, DecisionWise is enabling organizations to build a stronger employee experience by providing managers and employees insight into their ability to engage personally, as well as to engage others.
“This is another great step forward for DecisionWise,” said Tracy Maylett, Ed.D, CEO of DecisionWise. “Our research is clear that employee engagement is most influential at the team level, and the manager of that team has a significant impact on the engagement levels of the team. We have been successfully providing this world-class training in live workshop settings for several years, and now we are thrilled to offer it in an online format.”
As organizations mature from simply measuring engagement to understanding the overall employee experience, DecisionWise research confirms that conducting an annual census survey is not enough. The employee experience is improved not solely by gathering data, but by acting on the findings. While the senior team of an organization can provide organization-wide engagement initiatives, “engagement is local,” states Maylett, meaning the manager and the team are the most influential factors in creating an engaging work environment.
The DecisionWise ENGAGEMENT MAGIC online training focuses on the Employee Engagement MAGIC model: Meaning, Autonomy, Growth, Impact, and Connection. While the online course provides a solid understanding of the keys to engagement, it also puts emphasis on the DecisionWise claim that ownership for engagement “is a 50/50 proposition.” This means that both the organization (and the manager), as well as the employee, have responsibility for creating an engaging environment. Further emphasis is placed on the notion that engagement doesn’t focus solely on employee happiness and well-being; it also involves employees creating action and getting results.
“We believe that engagement is both feeling and doing,” states Charles Rogel, DecisionWise Sr. Consultant and lead in the development of the online training program. “This course was designed to help employees take ownership for their own engagement and succeed in their careers. It challenges false perceptions about motivation to create a new, more fulfilling work experience”
While available for individual participants as well, the training is intended to be completed as a team with regular group discussions, facilitated by the manager. The team discussions drive unity and understanding, while enhancing the learning activities to have a greater impact on development and engagement.
The course is available immediately on the DecisionWise Learning Portal. Organizations, managers, or individuals may purchase the online training per individual, or secure an annual license for the organization.
