Contented Cows Give Better Milk; Your People, Your Profit
Not your average "leadership" speech. Your People, Your Profit helps leaders make the connection between the work environment they create, and their organization's profitability. Based on Richard's books, Contented Cows Give Better Milk, and the new Contented Cows STILL Give Better Milk, this keynote is research-based and filled with practical to-do's. Audience members will leave this presentation with the knowledge and motivation to turn their workforces into vibrant, competitive weapons.
Bottom Line Leadership
An interactive version of "Your People, Your Profit", and perfect for leadership training workshops and concurrent session breakouts for groups smaller than a keynote audience.
Rebooting Leadership
The events of the last decade - political, social, technological, and economic, coupled with unprecedented changes in the workforce, call for a hard, new look at our leadership practices. Just as we "reboot" the computer when its operating system fails, the leadership system in most people-intensive organizations needs to hit its reset button. While the fundamentals of leadership have not changed, the way we practice them must reflect today's new realities - a world redefined by the economy, technology, and the "new deal" in the workplace. Based on Richard Hadden's new book of the same title, "Rebooting Leadership" is light on theory, with a heavy dose of practicality. This program provides down-and-dirty nitty-gritty how-to's for leaders charged with getting maximum productivity and customer-winning service in today's world of work.
