It's Not Them, It's You: Why Employees "Break Up" With Their Managers and What To Do About It.

52% of US workers plan to look for a new job. Of that group, more than half landed their current job less than a year ago. People are not happy at work—and the chief cause of this is bad managers. Losing people because of managers behaving badly is very costly to business—employee turnover is expensive and can range from 1.5 to 2 times the employee’s annual salary.  It’s also very costly to morale, the customer experience, and overall revenue. Business leaders must take notice.

The workplace needs to become more human, and managers are the key to bringing this about. Employees aren’t looking for super-high salaries, fancy perks, or costly value-adds. All they’re asking for… is a little RESPECT. In this talk, Laura will make the case for bringing back talking—really talking—to employees. What she has learned, through… well… really talking to people about their experiences, is that employees are looking for support, trust, and a mutually respectful relationship with their manager. The concept is simple… and effective.

In this session, learn from a veteran talent developer about:

  • Creating the kind of positive work environment where employees can feel supported and successful

  • 7 steps to solving engagement issues in the workplace

  • a powerful management tool to guide conversations with, and learn about, employees and what makes them tick.

I Have Found My Voice, And I Have Something to Say!

People everywhere are being encouraged to use their voices, and to amplify the voices of others. But how do we do that? In this talk, I draw upon my hard-won life lessons, as well as the collective wisdom of audience members and others who have touched my life. 

In this session, participants will learn what it means to:

  • Accept that you have talent, skills, abilities, and lessons to share with the world

  • Own your talent, regardless of your age

  • Speak up and speak out

  • Own their voice and speak with authority

  • When to speak out, and when to keep their thoughts to themselves

  • Amplify the voices of those around them who also deserve to be heard

This talk has been inspired by:

"Your  session... was a huge inspiration for finding my own voice"
