In a world where digital media use is maturing, it’s time to renovate the tools we use to build leaders. The concept of the ladder of engagement is not new; but like any conceptual tool, it’s time for a reboot. This training will lead participants through a set of strategic planning tools and exercises that will show how ladders of digital engagement can be built to foster online growth and offline leadership development. We’ll also examine the squishy word “engagement” and discuss elements and strategy worth examining when developing a meaningful definition of engagement, as well as metrics.
