Keynote Speaking Topics


Walk a Mile in my Shoes

A Tell-it-like-it-is approach comparing at a gut level, perceptions employees and managers have of one another. The true nature of the employer - employee relationship can be defined simply as conflicting agendas. Attendees will instantly understand how their behavior or their boss’ behavior contributes to tension and friction. When leaders and employees do not get along, alliances will naturally form. Unless these conflicts are bridged or eliminated, employee motivation will go down and operating costs will go up. The results are immediate. Employees and leaders will learn skills they can take back to their desks and apply today.


Making Change Happen!

Change is inevitable. Yet we dread it, resist it and do everything to prevent it. Upon communicating change to employees, did you ever hear: "When is management going to understand it is the real world down here?" How about, "If my boss would just get off my back and let me do my job, everything would be okay!" or, "Why can't they leave well enough alone?" Restoring productivity and profitability with employees hit by organizational change takes skills. Change damages trust level and drives morale south. You can’t afford to just sit back, let nature takes its course and hope everyone will get on board and eventually work together as an effective unit. The biggest mistake companies commit is doing nothing to help enhance change acceptance. This program has been designed to help attendees keep the workforce engaged and overcome employee resistance, so the organization can accelerate the entire change process.


Good Boss, Bad Boss, How to be the Best…And Learn From the Worst

Business is about people! If a leader does not show up to work, how much of the work gets done? If employees do not show up to work, how much of the work gets done? Employees are an organization’s most valuable resource. Hang onto your hat! This program is not about warm fuzzies, no academic theories, just practical wisdom from the trenches helping employees on all levels understand how to work with a leader who shows signs of practicing management without a license. You want the truth? Well, can you handle the truth? Unless these conflicts are bridged, you put the productivity and effectiveness of the entire organization at risk in the form of poor morale and lower productivity.


Resolving Generational Differences in the Workplace

Every generation has a valid point of view. It's not "out with the old, in with the new." It is about creating an environment where five generations can work side-by-side. This program has been designed to convey in practical terms an understanding of how organizations can identify and bridge the gaps that could have significant bottom line effects on business performance. The program illustrates who the generations are, why they clash, and what everyone can do to bridge the gaps. This fast paced and real-world program will create awareness, and offer practical solutions for solving the generational issues that plague today’s workplace and marketplace.
