TITLE OF SESSION
Unlocking High Performance
1. Why traditional management practices have failed us;
2. How work as a contract is being replaced by work as a relationship; and,
3. Managing performance is really about creating the right kind of employee experience.
Can you engage employees and maximize performance at the same time? Isn't having fun at work counter-productive? Why do I need to recognize employees for simply doing their job? If you wrestle with these questions, you aren't alone. You're struggling with the disconnect between an outdated model of management and a new world of work. The time for top down, compliance-based management is over. To attract, retain and unleash great talent for your organization, a new approach is required.
In this powerful keynote, you will learn how successful organizations are unleashing the full potential of their employees by creating a more "human-friendly" work experience. Employee engagement expert, Jason Lauritsen, will reveal how you can more effectively manage performance by making work feel more like a healthy relationship than an unpleasant obligation. You'll leave the experience inspired, informed and equipped with a new approach for unlocking higher performance that employees will love.
