Session 1: Next Generation Leaders: How to Attract, Engage, & Retain a 5-Generation Workforce

Successfully Blending the Five Generations in today’s workplace can be a tall order for any leader. Smart organizations assist all employees, especially leaders, to better understand one another and in so doing, increase productivity. It begins with open and vibrant dialogue and inclusion of all generations as we navigate our new normal.

Around the globe and in the New Hampshire, Maine and surrounding states, today’s employees can have up to five different generations working side by side. And, project productivity can decrease if your staff doesn’t understand the unique characteristics and talents each person/generation brings. After all, understanding and growing our talent and organizational culture creates opportunities for increase productivity, higher retention and better communications between staff and departments.

Participants will discover techniques that:

  • Increase employee retention, inclusion and attract new candidates
  • Increase overall workplace communication, productivity and satisfaction
  • Improve employee/management engagement of each generation and different cultures
  • Discover the virtual workplace needs, wants and aspirations of each generation
  • Identify the 7 most powerful actions (compiled from my 5-year study) we can take to successfully integrate generations in the workplace

If your goal is to support happier, dynamic, more productive employees while also maintaining focus on business growth, new trends, successful project completion and ore, this is the digital workshop for you.

Millennials and Gen. Z get a special and positive nod in this presentation- you’ll see why they’ve earned it in this fun, informative, interactive and fast paced session.

Session 2: Keynote - Managing Impossible Projects: Implementing the Never Give Up Perspective

Imagine how much the guy who figured out a way to rescue his two small children when they were kidnapped to the Middle East can teach you about resilience, successfully navigating change, perseverance and seeing the big picture in your professional and personal life. You’re managing multiple projects and moving forward despite limitations during challenging times. Scott understands limitations too.

Scott devised a daring plan to reunite with his two small children. This proved to be a significant test of both his resolve and strength of his convictions. The abduction and how he ultimately retained custody of his children led to the principles of tenacity and persistence displayed in this address.

  • Increase your leadership abilities through more effective relationship building
  • Improve your communication effectiveness and engagement with stakeholders, management and staff
  • Recognize when stress may be effecting business decisions and the tools to help
  • Provide you with tools to reduce stress and increase focus and engage employees
