West Windsor, NJ: Yale educated Psychologist Dr. Paul Marciano will lead a workshop at Mercer CountyCommunity College’s Conference Center on April 20.
Author of "Carrots and Sticks Don't Work: Build a Culture of Employee Engagement with the Principles of RESPECT," Dr. Marciano will bring to life his renowned RESPECT model and talk about why traditional reward and recognition programs fail, the difference between engagement and motivation, and how increasing employee engagement adds directly to the bottom line. Participants will leave with specific action steps and turnkey strategies to immediately increase the productivity and engagement of their employees.
At Yale, Dr. Marciano specialized in behavior modification and motivation. He has served on the faculties at Princeton University and Davidson College, where he taught leadership, industrial-organizational psychology, survey development, research methods and statistics.
The prestigious “Business Book Review” says, “In researching his book, Dr. Paul L. Marciano planned to review 15 different theories on how to motivate people. What he discovered was that productivity was not increased by the traditional ‘rewards and recognitions’ prevalent in organizations. It was not that these programs failed to stimulate employees, but rather that motivating workers was not what counted. Replacing employee motivation with employee engagement was more effective.”
The April 20 conference takes place 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., and includes breakfast, a signed copy of Dr. Marciano’s book, and a free employee engagement survey. Tickets are $119 per person, with an “early bird” registration before March 23 at $109. Tickets for nonprofits and government attendees are also $109. Register online at http://www.mccc.edu/respect.
