Engage Your Teams
If you’ve ever wondered why no matter how hard you work and how many people you hire, your company just isn’t reaching its potential – you likely have a team engagement issue.
Often managers and team members are not on the same page. When this happens, friction can result. Employees end up becoming more and more disengaged, spending their time on unproductive activities and complaining about your company, their managers or other team members.

Companies with team disengagement risk losing their best talent. Those who stay may continue to show up to work every day but are simply co-existing. They lack any involvement with their teams and provide no initiative to drive the company forward. Disengaged employees cost your company a lot of wasted time and money.

How I Work

Your People Retention Strategist.

I believe that to retain your most valuable talent, a business needs to determine what is causing people to be disengaged or leave.

To build trust and relationships with your management team, I use my intuitive listening skills to hear their unspoken words to read peoples’ emotions and motives. I work with your teams to determine the core problem. Once the problem is identified, it can be solved.


Understand the ins and outs of your business, connect with team members, and conduct an assessment to determine the core problem. Once the problem is identified, it can be solved.


Formulate a program with systems specifically designed to resolve the identified issues.


Work with you through the adoption of the new systems and help manage the change and ensure the program is successful.

Four Pillar Systems.

Successful companies today require a clear vision and a team of motivated people wanting to follow that vision. With a complex workplace mixture of five working generations, getting everyone synchronized and working together in the same direction is only achievable once there is a deep-seated workplace culture of leadership – one that people are compelled to follow.

At the same time, there are a multitude of engagement tactics and systems designed to focus on leadership and specific company areas, however, they are all intertwined.

At Systems for Engaging Teams, we consider there to be four key pillar systems that set the foundation for an engaged team.


It all stems from the top. Engagement is the responsibility of the leadership. How you create and share a vision, develop your teams, instill a process for effective and efficient meetings, hire and onboard new talent, make your employees feel valued; each of these are all affected by the leadership in your company. 

Leadership Amplified is a system that will set the overlying culture and gets everyone not only swimming in the same direction, but each with clearly identified swim lanes and finish lines that will develop your teams to reach newer levels.


Coming up with a vision statement is one thing, but creating and living a culture statement that actually moves people will give your team members purpose.   What your company determines as core values and how you communicate that with everyone inside and outside the organization is essential to keep your team aligned with your purpose and vision.

Creating a Moving Culture Statement is a compelling and impactful system that, while many companies do not realize, directly affects turnover, costs and team engagement.


Email is the most commonly used form of communication in today’s workplace, but the quantity of emails does not equate to the quality of communication. Communication that works needs consistency in the form of regular 1:1 personal connection points, effective collaboration tools that break down silos, and systems that eliminate a false sense of harmony. 

Collaborative Lattice Communication is a system that allows for company communication to flow not just from an organizational chart line from top to bottom, but upwards and sideways and in all directions – without risking triangulation.


Are multigenerational workplace gaps a myth or reality? Does a grandfather typically have the same perspective as his adult grandson? Whether companies realize it or not, generational differences that are noticed in everyday life are often unidentified in the workplace. 

Hidden Workplace Generational Gaps Decoded is a specific system that unifies team members of various age groups to connect on commonalities rather than differences, so that they can actually learn from each other in a productive and engaging manner.

Within these four key pillar systems, other related engagement strategies are also intertwined.
These focus on areas such as:

  • Start by Defining Your Purpose
  • Demonstrating Your Culture Statement
  • Leadership & Team Development and Competencies
  • Hiring and On-boarding Your New Talent, Retaining Your Best
  • Giving and Receiving Feedback
  • Self-directed Performance Competencies
  • Communication, Collaboration and Breaking the Silo Mentality
  • Group and Individual Coaching for Guided Progress
