Deloitte recently stated that engagement is the one key element every successful business needs but most businesses have terrible engagement levels. Thankfully, Engage and Grow has been developed to bring the passion back for employees and organisations.
“We’re pioneering a new way to create to advance your systems, behaviour and culture. It’s not coaching and it’s not training; it’s a facilitation of change,” says Engage and Grow CEO and Founder, Richard Maloney. In just a year, the global coaching company has expanded from four coaches to 94, illustrating how valuable their Group Activation System is. The company is based in 15 countries, working across government, health and banking sectors as well as with tradesman and entrepreneurs. However, in the UK, the only place you’ll find an Engage & Grow coach is at ActionCOACH.
“Unlike traditional employee and leadership training, no pens and paper are required,” says Richard. “Traditional training is over. Peoples’ brains are full. They go to a one-day workshop and retain that information for a couple of days afterwards then it’s gone”.
That’s why Engage and Grow coaches attend a client’s site for one hour each week for 12 weeks to build leaders in their own fish pond. This approach has resulted in a 300 percent increase in engagement compared to the usual 10-15 percent.
“We take them on a journey and we get them to own their whole work environment in a way that’s empowering and creative. It’s a great model for millennials and older generations to connect and to expand,” explains Richard. According to Richard, every business has a heart and brain. Your brain is your systems, programs and predicts. And your heart is your relationships, communications, culture and leadership. At its core we open up the hearts of a business by helping people to understand themselves and each other better”.The franchise is expanding quickly and ActionCOACH franchise owners will be the exclusive conduits for Engage and Grow in the UK.
