Activating Managers Boot Camp

Do, Speak, Create

 Evidence suggests that activating managers may well be the lynchpin that can make the difference. According to Gallup,the manager may account for up to 70 percent of the variance in employee engagement. In a dynamic, interactive and hands-on workshop, learn the fundamentals of how you can activate managers in your organization to become “multipliers” of well-being – and the difference this can make.

Following this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • List three reasons from the literature about why managers are primary contributors toward employee engagement in well-being.
  • Distinguish between a manager acting as a “multiplier” and a “gatekeeper”.
  • Name three strategies that can be employed to enhance managerial engagement in promoting employee well-being.
  • Practice applying these three strategies: Do, Speak, Create.
  • Gain insights from Crockett Dale, CEO of Healthstat, a company that has successfully implemented Manager on the Move.
  • Come away with inspiration, along with tangible tools to Activate Managers!
All attendees will receive a FREE copy of Laura Putnam's book "Workplace Wellness that Works," generously donated by Healthstat!

David “Crockett” Dale, President and CEO, Healthstat, started his career as a banker in Chapel Hill, NC. He left banking to assume the role of president of his family business, a prominent hosiery mill in Hickory, NC, which he led for nearly 20 years. Crockett saw the impact that chronic health conditions and barriers to care were having on his workforce and his business. He brought in an onsite clinic to deliver quality, accessible care to his employees. The clinic provider he partnered with had a holistic, prevention-focused approach that was ahead of its time. Seeing his leadership in promoting a new culture of wellness in the factory achieve positive results, Crockett posed the question, “How healthy can a population be?” This led him to purchase a majority stake in the company that provided his clinic services, and Crockett became CEO of Healthstat. Over the past 12 years, Crockett has been a dynamic innovator and thought leader in the fast-growing onsite clinic industry.
