Speaking Topics

  • Coaching Strategies for Leaders

    To increase teamwork and decrease unhealthy conflict, today ́s leaders need coaching skills. Coaching within organizations ensures communication, connectivity, and performance, all of which make a strong contribution to an organization's productivity and profitability. This session offers coaching tools tailored for leaders to navigate our changing environment.

  • Retaining your Best Employees During Low Unemployment

    Low unemployment may be good for the economy, but it can cause pain for your leaders. At times like this, holding on to your top talent becomes even more important. This presentation takes a look at three top reasons employees leave and offers solutions organizations can implement to overcome costly turnover.

  • Strategic Delegation

    You’ve tried repeating it, you’ve tried demonstrating it, but your employees are still struggling. Why are they not listening? Lack of effective delegation costs your company money in wasted effort and missed deadlines. Successful leaders know how to delegate in a way that gains commitment from employees and achieves timely results. This session examines factors that inhibit listening and offers techniques to delegate strategically.

  • Creating a Coaching Culture

    The successful organization of today is much different than it was at the turn of the millennium. The consistency of technological change is pushing organizations to move faster and more efficiently. The age-old methods of reviewing performance simply don't keep up with the changes that organizations need to stay current. Coaching within organizations ensures communication, connectivity, and efficient performance, all of which make a strong contribution to an organization's productivity and profitability.

  • Retention-Based Onboarding

    HR can make a positive impact on business by increasing engagement and retention through an often overlooked and underutilized tool: onboarding. It’s been proven that a strong onboarding program can help stop the downward cycle of turnover for years to come. It doesn't have to be costly, but it does have to be intentional. Together, we will discuss the 3 phases of onboarding and how to measure the effectiveness of your program and ensure that it aligns with your company’s strategic goals.

  • Connecting with Executives

    HR professionals and mid-level managers often fail to connect with executives in ways that allow them to contribute in a way that effectively influences decision making. This presentation is designed to provide insights to use when preparing a presentation in which you seek to influence the thinking, decisions, and actions of executives.

  • Developing Business Acumen

    HR professionals are continually hearing about becoming a strategic partner and getting a seat at the table. Their CEOs want them to know the numbers and the trends of the workplace. But how can HR professionals be more strategic when they’re so busy handling the details? This presentation offers a solid foundation of what Business Acumen is and how HR professionals can carve out time in their busy schedules to increase this important behavioral competency.
