Employee Engagement

David Benson - Dale Carnegie


Based on new, groundbreaking research we will discuss the three clusters of behaviors that significantly impact engagement. Then, within each cluster we will break down the individual actions we can take to develop enthusiastic, empowered, confident and inspired employees - the type of employees who care, who want to be part of a success story, and who will drive your organization to the top.

Mr. Benson has nearly 20 years experience in management consulting, business analysis, project management, and corporate training in a variety of fast-paced settings, from local start-up to industry leader. Before joining Dale Carnegie Training of Utah in 2014, he served as a consultant in the technology industry.

How to Train on Employee Engagement

David Mason


Recent research shows that only 41% of non-managers and 65% of managers understand the concept of employee engagement. Even less know how to become more engaged in their work. This session will reveal common misconceptions about engagement and provide a simple MAGIC model to train managers and employees to take ownership for their engagement. This fun, interactive session will include psychological research, interactive activities, and video examples that will change the way you think about motivation and work.

David Mason is a master trainer at DecisionWise and an expert on employee engagement. He holds a Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology from Columbia University, and undergraduate and graduate degrees in Psychology at Brigham Young University. Dr. Mason turns his understanding of adult learning and psychology into business concepts, working with numerous businesses and academic institutions. Prior to joining DecisionWise, David taught in the Department of Cognitive, Perceptual, and Brain Sciences at University College London.

We’ve Moved!

Utah ATD will begin holding our monthly events in a new, centrally located venue beginning January 19, 2017! Join us at the Residence Inn Murray (171 E 5300 S) to experience the first event at this updated and central location.

In addition to a new location, January will debut a change to the monthly event format. The event will begin at 11:30-12:00 with lunch and networking. Then, the presentation of the day will run from 12:00-1:30. Presentations will support a variety of areas of expertise, and a significant portion of each presentation will be dedicated to how the information can be used in practical applications. Many of these presentations will also feature activities and more opportunities for participation.

See you there!
