Meeting 8:00-9:30 AM

SPEAKER:  Dave O'Brien

CONTENT: Today’s do-more-with-less workplace climate has produced an unprecedented need for employee engagement and accountability. Add to this increased competition and stakeholder expectations and it has also produced an unparalleled opportunity for all employees to expand their influence and impact. A key factor in being able to seize this opportunity is the capacity to demonstrate personal accountability and leadership regardless of job title, role or function. Not surprisingly, this capacity is most often driven by clarity and purpose both of which result from a heightened awareness of expectations and corresponding workplace behavioral choices in the wake of accelerating change and stress.

Included in this high impact, high content presentation is a review of the three most common barriers to a fantastic workplace as well as the behavioral choices that either foster or inhibit workplace success and job satisfaction.  Additionally, the program provides a meaningful framework for developing a team action plan that supports organizational success. Participants can expect to leave the presentation with new tools that can be applied immediately to increase job satisfaction while helping to build a fantastic workplace for colleagues and customers.
