Dificulties on Binding Data From DataSource to Nodes


I'm trying to bind the information from datasource to diagram at XAML, but I wasn't able to accomplish it. I put below the XAML used as the code used.
I really would appreciate it if someone could point out what I'm doing wrong.

<syncfusion:SfDiagram x:Name="diagram">
                    <Grid WidthRequest="80" HeightRequest="80" BindingContext="this">
                        <Label Text="{Binding name}" BackgroundColor="Red" TextColor="Green"/>

            employees = new ObservableCollection<Employee>();
            employees.Add(new Employee() { name = "Elizabeth", id = 1, parentId = 0, designation = "CEO" });
            employees.Add(new Employee() { name = "Christina", id = 2, parentId = 1, designation = "Manager" });
            employees.Add(new Employee() { name = "Yang", id = 3, parentId = 1, designation = "Manager" });

            diagram.DataSourceSettings = new DataSourceSettings()
                DataSource = employees,
                Id = "id",
                ParentId = "parentId"

            DirectedTreeLayout treeLayout = new DirectedTreeLayout()
                HorizontalSpacing = 80,
                VerticalSpacing = 80,
                TreeOrientation = TreeOrientation.TopToBottom

            diagram.LayoutManager = new LayoutManager()
                Layout = treeLayout

Hi customer, 
Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support. 
The data template binding for node while implementing “Layout” in SfDiagram should be carried out in code level. The data binding from xaml level for layout will not reflect in node since, it is the behavior of SfDiagram. We have prepared a sample based on the provided details, which can be downloaded from the below link. 
Kindly let us know if you require any further assistance.
