Leadership Development Sessions
Survival Skills for Leaders in Interesting Times
Our presenter for this year's leadership development sessions is Denise Ryan. Denise is going to deliver customized tips that can be put into place immediately to help with your recruitment and retention efforts.
There is an ancient Chinese curse that says, “May you live in interesting times.” Well, these are definitely interesting times! This year’s Fall Leadership Conference is designed to help you cope. We’ll begin with some tips for time management. Most leaders are working longer hours than ever before and still don’t have time for things like coaching and mentoring employees. We’re going to discuss innovation and how to generate new ideas for solving the problems we are experiencing in this interesting economy and labor market.
Then, we’ll discuss How to Create a Cult-Like Following for Your Organization. Company culture is a hot buzzword, but what does it really mean? The words culture and cult share a common origin - with meanings ranging from cultivation to training to worship. While we're not necessarily going to talk about getting your employees to worship you, we will talk about what makes them show up, give 100 percent, and lure (I mean recruit) other employees. We'll discuss 7 thought provoking ideas from cults (yes, cults!) and how they can be applied at your company.
We’ll also touch on creating a cult-like following with your customers.
The Learning Outcomes:
- List seven features of cults that can help with employee engagement and retention
- Develop specific ideas for applying the seven features at your company
- Avoid the mistakes cults make resulting in member (employee) disillusionment
