During the one-hour webcast, the authors will discuss the research at the book’s foundation: the truth about employee engagement. Then, Tracy and Paul will share stories from the book and recount experiences from the road working with clients in over 70 countries to help their leaders and employees feel the MAGIC of employee engagement. Later, they’ll be joined by DecisionWise professional trainers, who regularly use the book to train leaders and employees in companies around the globe.

Ten lucky attendees will be selected to receive a free autographed copy of MAGIC. This is an event you don’t want to miss.

When we’re not busy dancing in a whirlwind of confetti, we’ll be sharing some research data, psychological theories, and employee engagement anecdotes like the following:

  • How companies like Sony, Volvo, and ExxonMobil are building meaning into their mission statements
  • The autonomy difference between competitors Walmart and Costco
  • How to identify our own zones of proximal development and balance between eustress and distress to promote growth
  • The role of expectancy theory in developing perceived levels of impact
  • How connection can be augmented by focusing on leader-member exchange to move all employees to the in-group

About the research

Based on over 14 million employee survey responses across 70 countries–the most expansive engagement survey database of its kind–MAGIC combines principles of psychology and motivation with solid business concepts. Written by internationally recognized experts in leadership and employee engagement, Dr. Tracy Maylett and Dr. Paul Warner, MAGIC provides actionable advice that will reduce employee attrition, encourage initiative, drive growth and profit, and increase personal engagement.

About the book

Employees and leaders intuitively know that when we find a place where we can throw our hearts, spirits, minds, and hands into our work, we are happier, healthier, and produce better results. Yet, most struggle to understand exactly why we engage in some environments, and not in others. MAGIC introduces the five MAGIC keys of employee engagement–Meaning, Autonomy, Growth, Impact, and Connection–and shows how leaders can help employees achieve higher levels of engagement, as well as how employees can be more successful by taking ownership of their own MAGIC.
