UMBRELLA LEADERSHIP

The 5 Kinds of Leadership and Teamwork That Boost Employee Retention

Do your leaders protect their people while giving them the freedom and resources to thrive? Or do they let the you-know-what roll downhill, increasing frustration and turnover?

Today’s best leaders are inclusive, transparent, and honest. They build rapport and trust. They look out for the people they lead and manage.  They build productivity and organizational success by fostering clarity, optimism and meaning. They have the patience to explain not just what needs to be done, but also why.

Great leaders like that also foster productive teamwork. The best teams are collaborative, honest, and fun. The people on these teams know, like, and trust each other. And great leaders are living examples of the kind of character and collaboration they want to see on their teams.

In this insightful talk, Brian harnesses his 15 years researching and managing Millennials and Gen Z in the workplace to deliver a no-nonsense session that will equip your leaders and managers to get the most out of your today’s employees and teams. With concrete takeaways you can put into practice on Monday, this program shows you how your organization can boost retention and attract more great employees.

SHIFT HAPPENS

5 Ways to Adapt to a Changed Workforce

It’s harder than ever to keep good talent. You may have heard of “quiet quitting.” Did you know, there are 2.3 million people on Reddit’s Antiwork subreddit? The workforce has changed.

The truth is, Millennials and Gen Z workers don’t want the same things you did. They’re not willing to put up with the same things you did. Many don’t believe retirement is a realistic option for them. They don’t want to sacrifice now for later. They want a great life now. And that impacts how and where they’re willing to work.

That’s why to attract and retain smart and talented people, organizations more than ever need to be clear on their values and how they impact employees.

The world always changes. It’s changed since you were younger. And those changes have changed today’s workforce. This engaging keynote helps your leaders and managers adapt to these changes and gives them specific, proven techniques for building stronger teams and boosting employee retention.
