“The secret to inspiring accountability and engagement starts with asking:
We begin in the brain, where all experience and engagement begins!” – Elaina Noell
Elaina helps organizations design cultures that increase employee engagement, productivity and fulfillment. Her approach focuses on working with human dynamics and neuroscience to positively inspire sustainable results instead of trying to enforce ideals that lead to defensiveness, mutual frustration and disengagement.
She recently published her second book 'Inspiring Accountability in the Workplace'.
