CEO roundtable explores leadership and employee engagement
This Post has No Comments
The CEO Roundtable Leadership Series, sponsored by Connelly, Carlisle, Fields & Nichols, explores “Leadership & Engagement” with the Tampa Bay area’s leading executives. The next two-hour session is scheduled for September 4 at the Palma Ceia Country Club.
The quarterly sessions are facilitated by Rob Nielsen, CEO of LGL Leadership and a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point, the pre-eminent leadership institution in the world that strives to consistently develop empathic leaders of character. Ron has dedicated his career to creating and implementing leadership, cultural alignment, and peak performance strategies for companies and organizations across the country.
In today’s economy, employers may or may not be looking to attract new employees, but they certainly need to retain the good ones they have and create a culture that gets employees to give discretionary effort and do more than the minimum required to keep their paycheck. The panel discussion provides an opportunity for local leaders to share their insights and strategies relative to minimizing the gap that exists between leadership and employee engagement.
A new global workforce study by Towers Watson reveals that 63% of U.S. employees are not fully engaged in their work and struggling to cope when sufficient support is not provided. With doubts regarding the strength of the U.S. economic recovery, the research suggests that employees are becoming less and less engaged in the companies where they work. In turn, when employees are not fully engaged it creates a greater performance risk for employers, to include:
- Low productivity
- High inefficiency
- Weaker customer service
- Greater rates of absenteeism and turnover
Additional findings of the Towers Watson study relative to employee engagement include:
- 27% are unsupported (i.e. they are engaged but lack the enablement and/or energy required for sustainable engagement).
- 13% are detached (i.e. they feel enabled and/or energized but are not willing to go the extra mile).
- 23% are completely disengaged.

By design, the panel discussion is limited to an intimate setting with 6-8 local leaders per session. It also includes a “gallery” so other members of a company’s leadership team can attend and observe the discussion.
