Our spotlight this week is on Steve Gutzler, a dynamic speaker who speaks to audiences everywhere on leadership, emotional intelligence, and personal transformation. His authentic, inspiring style moves people to action with humor, clarity, and insight.
Steve is on a mission to teach personal leaders how to reach their full potential, build inner confidence, instill courage, and achieve sustainable success. Here’s what he said:
1. Why is it critical to grow leaders at every level?
STEVE: Leadership development will give your company a competitive advantage. Creating the mindset of leadership at every level unlocks personal potential, innovative ideas, and peak performance. Companies that reserve leadership to positions and titles limit the potential of impactful growth and dynamic solutions.
2. How does employee engagement increase productivity?
STEVE: Employees who feel more engaged with their Manager/Supervisor build higher levels of personal morale and increased loyalty. My Emotional Intelligence presentation provides leaders with actionable tools to increase employee engagement and bottom line results. That all leads to more revenue!
