Here is a list of the keynote speaking topics I offer. Those who have worked with me as a speaker consider me to be an “experienced teacher and engaged presenter,” and enjoy my “motivational and engaging” speaking style. You can read detailed testimonials from colleagues here.
BECOME THE EMPLOYER OF CHOICE: EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT
Dramatic changes are ahead in tomorrow’s workforce with retirement of the baby boomers and continued growth in the number of “Gen X” and “Millennial” employees. C Level leaders and emerging leaders need to understand how employees become engaged, not just satisfied. I humorously challenge leaders to understand what drives employee engagement (EE), and build the business case and provoke them to think differently. Leaders will understand their roles in EE, and the two most important drivers to creating a workforce that views the company’s success as their success, regardless of age.
STRATEGIC EMPLOYEE DEVELOPMENT
Nearly 50% of the year 2020 workforce will be comprised of Millennials who will be lead by Gen X’er; baby boomers will be a minority of the workforce. The composition of the workforce will forever change and today’s leaders need to be prepared for the inevitable. Developing your workforce through a disciplined process is the most rational and cost effective strategy to assure the transition of leadership inevitable in every company. Employers need to understand the process to identify critical leadership competencies, evaluate the skill gap and develop plans to prepare tomorrow’s leaders, today.
CHANGE MANAGEMENT: TRY SOMETHING NEW THIS TIME
Companies fail time and time again to create meaningful and sustainable change. This thought provoking presentation focuses on a proven model of change that invests your employees in the process of change. Top down old school models fail again and again. Leaders will learn three crucial elements to change management and how to have their employees lead the charge for change!
CAREER LIMITING MOVES: LESSONS IN EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE
The most common “derailer” of executive careers is the lack of emotional intelligence (EQ). In this talk, I explore the concepts of personal awareness and social awareness in a humorous but provocative way for C Level leaders and emerging leadership that pokes fun at the mistakes we all make. Leaders walk away laughing but also thinking about how to successfully incorporate EQ in their career.
SAFETY’S NEWEST DIMENSION: EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT
Creating a safe workplace saves lives and money. But employers get stuck on rules and procedures, missing the opportunity to dramatically reduce accidents at work through engaging their employees in a time tested way. The research on employee engagement (EE) and improving safety is compelling. I humorously challenge leaders to understand what drives EE and their roles in creating a highly engaged workforce, and build the business case and provoke them to think differently.
