How can I motivate company leaders to take action?

This is a question I hear often. Does anyone have guidance, examples or experience you can share on how to effectively engage leaders in helping to drive action based on employee feedback results?

A lot of my past work experience was built around helping organizations articulate the business case for executing actions.

One method for increasing action on engagement was to have more engaging conversations around engagement results. So, rather than starting with results, kicking off conversations about organizational strategies and business goals. Then, based on those goals, identifying how their survey findings relate to those goals.

Also, I’ve seen a lot of value in having conversations with stakeholders about what actions ought to be taken rather than dictating actions to stakeholders. There’s a lot of research on collaborative goal setting and follow through.
