Did you know $11 billion is lost annually due to employee turnover? Employee disengagement costs more than $500 billion per year. On top of that, 56% of employers report difficulty retaining top talent. And the #1 reason employees leave… their boss.
Do you want to be a leader people want to work for? Creating a strong, engaged team translates into a more positive work environment, lower turnover, and greater productivity and collaboration. It also has a direct effect on your organization’s bottom line: companies with highly engaged employees outperform others by over 200%.
Your ability to create meaningful and lasting relationships directly impacts your success from hiring, to referrals, to closing the deal. Discover how you can become a leader who attracts and engages an eager, committed team. Expand your role, build loyalty, and close deals on relationships not price. And when opportunities arise, be first in mind and someone they want to say ‘yes’ to!
Connected Leadership will help you develop the specific skills you need to better connect with your employees. Through this dynamic, highly interactive workshop, you will learn how to build stronger relationships that increase your value, influence, and impact. You will leave with increased clarity on your leadership brand, new tools and skills, and greater confidence—ready to engage your team and expand your influence throughout your organization.REGISTER NOW »
