Start a Conversation

Managers and supervisors at Indiana University are entrusted with ensuring staff employees feel heard, valued, and motivated. In focus groups with the IU Human Resources Talent and Organization Development team, staff employees from across the university shared what they need and want from managers. Successful managers at IU also shared how they motivate and build high-performing teams.

Employees and managers agree that great leadership isn’t complex. It takes place each day, simply through conversations. Four Simple Actions is a communication framework for everyday conversations.

Conversations create a culture where employees perform at consistently high levels, work with passion, and move the organization forward. They also build a culture that attracts and retains high-performing employees. Start a conversation with your employees with Four Simple Actions.
