Tools to Transform Your Team
Did you know that in the average US company, only about 30% of employees are actively engaged, contributing their best efforts? The challenge for many leaders is not just to hire more people to help, but also to tap into their existing employees’ talents to unleash their potential. Unfortunately, the very ways many leaders approach their people ends up working against them, not for them.

Topics include:

  • The Slight Edge Difference
  • Engaging Today’s Workforce
  • Team Power: Unleash Your Potential
