Despite high unemployment many skilled positions are experiencing shortages of qualified candidates. In fact the labor market has tightened for professional jobs overall. If we are going to grow our business we need to find ways to get more out of the team that we have. Could we get 25% – 50% more productivity from our current team? What would that mean for our business and our profits?
In order to overcome these challenges we will talk about building trust, and adopting transparency while maintaining your authority as the leader.
- What really motivates your team (and it’s not money)
- Ways to engage our team to deal with the uncertainty in the marketplace
- How do we create a “new deal” with our team, that we can afford and is attractive to them.
- How to increase transparency, create trust and get more for less
- Positioning your firm to win in the coming employee swap meet.
Brad Farris addresses these issues using lots of examples drawn from his 10 years of consulting with Small Business Owners. He has seen clients who have done things well, and some that have made mistakes, and brings those examples in the program.
Brad’s speaking style is dynamic and interactive, no PowerPoint here! The discussion format that he uses is very flexible and insures that concerns that members bring into the meeting can get appropriately addressed.
Audience members will leave with a new understanding of the levers of employee engagement. We will map a specific plan for gaining more commitment and effort from your team. But it’s not just all about them. In order to make significant gains in engagement changes need to be made by the owner and we will outline the risks and opportunities that they represent. Everyone should leave with a solid plan that they can take back to their workforce and begin implementation.

I heartily recommend Brad Farris as a speaker for your next meeting. He delivers the goods in a winsome way. Brad has great training content with real life examples from his business experience and just the right amount of humor. My staff are still quoting Brad and working on the principles he taught us months after the training session he led.”
