What part of your company can benefit most from The Seventh Level Engagement Framework?


Employee Relations

To foster productivity and culture in the workplace, you need engagement.



To capture the attention of potential leads, you need engagement.



To build passionate brand followers,
you need engagement.



But, what is engagement? Everywhere you look, people and platforms have different definitions for engagement.

Yet, it’s the foundation on which we connect with each other, brands, employers and even our significant others. Because without engagement, we are apathetic. At CatalystCreativ, we believe that engagement is the invisible force that guides our experiences and our decision making. Understanding and harnessing it allows you to build connections with human beings that drive belief and action. 

Adapted from the renowned work of education researchers Bangert-Drowns and Pyke, The Seventh Level Engagement Framework empowers every individual with a language to define, understand and improve engagement.


first, Start with your Seventh Level Statement

The Seventh Level is the pinnacle of engagement, and it’s the goal that the Seventh Level Framework propels you toward. But to reach it, you have to first know what your—or your brand's—narrative is. What do you stand for? What is it you want to communicate to the world? That is your Seventh Level Statement. Start by writing your statement. Once you know that, you can begin to work through each level.


Then, through the lens of your Seventh Level Statement, employ the Framework to better understand how you're engaging with your audience.
