Collaboration vs. Collision: Bridging the Communication Gap Between Generations
Today’s workplace is composed of four distinct generations who interact and communicate in very different ways. If your organization’s Traditionalists think your Millennials have more in common with aliens than human beings, have no fear. That’s just par for the course. During this fun and informative presentation, we’ll pull out the generational translator and help you understand what makes each generation tick, why they choose to communicate in certain ways, and how you can make sure you’re speaking the same language as your employees.
Developing Tomorrow’s Leaders Today
Employers nationwide complain that Millennials, who grew up under the loving care of helicopter parents, are not ready to take on the real world. But you might be surprised to learn this young generation is every bit as competent as those who came before them—they are just very different. Because Millennials are the first generation to grow up with the Internet, they see and interact with the world in new and different ways. As a result, managers are often unsure of the best way to attract, retain, and motivate this young talent. Find out what motivates Millennials, learn how to speak their unique language, and harness the power of these bold multi-taskers to give your business a competitive advantage.
You Can't Text Your Way Through a Job Interview
For the first time in history, communicating with employees means reaching out to four distinct generations: Traditionalists, Boomers, Xers and Millennials. Each group has different values, different experiences, and different expectations. What you used to know about recruiting, retaining, and motivating your employees no longer applies—the entrance of Millennials into the workforce has changed all the rules. In this presentation, Sherri explains who these generations are and what makes them tick. You’ll learn how to: 1) build an effective generational blend for maximum competitive advantage; 2) recruit, retain, and motivate the best talent from each generation ; and 3) craft a branding message that speaks across the generational divide to attract top talent and make them want to stay.
Risk is Not a Game: Putting an End to Law Suits and Audits
As the world changes ever more rapidly, new risks and reasons for concern arise every day. HR is a dynamic area in which the rules change so quickly it’s often difficult to keep on top of all the changes. In this presentation, you’ll learn about the latest developments in immigration documentation and how you can avoid an audit by the U.S. Department of Labor. You’ll also learn how ineffective mobile phone policies can give rise to law suits over harassment, sexting, and more. Finally, you’ll leave knowing how to implement critical policies and procedures that guard against legal issues while simultaneously enhancing the work environment.
The Good, the Bad, and the Absolutely RIDICULOUS!
Have you ever heard horror stories about companies that got sued for wrongful termination or were slapped with an immigration audit just because a disgruntled employee decided to tell all? Ever wondered how you can keep these things from happening to you? Then this presentation is for you. Sherri will share some of her secret stories—some humorous, some not—that will leave you rolling in the aisle and wanting to know more. You’ll learn how to keep yourself and your company out of the papers and courtroom files so you can use your money, time, and energy toward building your business (and staying out of jail).
There’s Gotta Be Something More
Do you feel like you’ve hit a wall, burned out, and are no longer fed by your life? Do you feel trapped in your situation, stuck with the nagging feeling that there’s got to be something more? Sherri shares her own experiences (road blocks, stop signs, and all) around starting her own business, writing a book, and helping her daughter on the road to recovery. She’ll also offer practical advice that will help you break down your obstacles to a fulfilling life. Come prepared to use all of your senses and get re-energized.
