What he does, is to make you aware of how important it is to get your people engaged at what they do every day. Business is changing at lightning speed.

In his usual high-energy, high-humor and high-content style, Jeff walks audiences through the â€œFour Pillars of Engagementâ€â€¦ Creativity Curiosity may have killed the cat but itâ€™s the one resource that the most successful organizations have discovered that they need to foster in their people. Creativity leads to innovation and, as you may already know, this is Jeffâ€™s passion and focus for 20+ years! To get people invested in your organization, you have to encourage them to be more curious in looking for alternative solutions, being incredible problem solvers and in asking the right kinds of questions of their internal and external customers. Commitment Commitment is at the heart of every successful organization, and commitment is always about relationships. With compelling business examples and proven strategies, Tobe reveals essential behaviors and characteristics to build and strengthen commitment throughout the organization. In a simple formula, Jeff demonstrates how commitment to becoming 100% customer centric can get people more involved at every level of the organization. Every organization is in the business of relationships. Gain a competitive advantage with trustworthy managers, loyal employees and clients who commit to the integrity of your organization and product or service. Accountability At every level of the organization, people have to do more than just WANT to be accountable, they have to act â€œas ifâ€¦â€ Engagement without accountability equals chaos.

He believes in the rule that â€œIf you are 100% accountable for the â€˜nowâ€, there can be 0 excuses in the future. Communication Engagement starts and ends with open communication.
