When Metropolis was in danger, would Superman have run to our aid faster than a speeding bullet if he didn't love his job?  Without a sense of urgency at work, would the Avengers have done much avenging at all?  From modern big screen adaptations to comic book classics, our favorite superheroes are constantly expending extra discretionary effort to get the job done.  And while a cape may not fit your office dress code, there's still a lot they can teach us about inspiring passion in the workplace!  In this session, Philippe discusses new findings and best practices for driving employee engagement, teaching through the fun, memorable lens of classic superhero mythos.  Filled with interactive polls, guided Q&A, and multimedia, this session will provide everything you need to inspire your managers and bring a real sense of fun to engaging your workforce.
