In this article for Psychology Today, Wake Forest AVP Allison McWilliams (’95) explores why managers need to dive deeper with their employees to keep them engaged at work. Check out her recommendations of key questions all managers should be asking their people.

“Unfortunately, we are all too busy, too over-scheduled, and, for some of us, too burned out to do the hard work of reflecting honestly on where we are and where we would like to be, not to mention building in time to have these conversations with the people we manage. But if you want to be a great manager, this is some of the most important work you can and should do.”
