Is the F-Word Killing Innovation?
Building a Culture that Attracts and Retains Your Ideal Employees
Some of the biggest challenges facing executives over the next 10 years include retaining and rewarding the best employees, developing the next generation of leaders, and creating an organizational culture that attracts the best employees. The next generation of leaders looks at culture as one of the most important factors in working for, or staying with a company. And if the F-Word (fear) is there, they will leave!
Forbes reports we are in a Retention Crisis – Deloitte research shows that culture, engagement, and employee retention are now top challenges facing business leaders. Unemployment below 5.5% indicates that employees have more bargaining power. Social sites like LinkedIn, Glassdoor, and Indeed means that company's employment brand is now public information. If not a great place to work, people find out fast. Deloitte reports that 95% of candidates believe culture is more important than compensation.
This presentation inspires participants to recognize the powerful differentiator of organizational culture and how to shift from fear to innovation. Leaders will learn strategies to influence, motivate, and retain employees with practical and tactical solutions to build thriving, sustainable, and innovative workplace cultures.
Leading with Love
The Heart of Success
Leading with Love is not for the faint of heart. Fear is running rampant in many organizations today, paralyzing leaders from making decisions, stifling innovation, killing loyalty, and negatively influencing productivity. As the economy recovers and the war on talent gears up, love-based organizations are the best defense. The session provides an overview of the tenants of Love-Based Leadership and evidence for its multifaceted organizational success.
This presentation inspires participants to recognize the destructive nature of workplace fear. Replacing fear with a love-based culture is not for the faint of heart. The most arduous journey many will take is the 18” from the head to the heart. This is not a session of kittens, puppies, and rainbows. Instead, leaders will learn strategies to influence, motivate, and retain employees with practical and tactical solutions for sustainable and innovative workplace cultures.
