Competencies: Business (Behavioral), Leadership (Behavioral), People (Technical)
Workplace Application:
Attendees will learn how to fix retention problems by first fixing managers. 

"Turnover's high, go fix it!" is a shudder-inducing phrase for HR professionals, who know that turnover is driven primarily by ineffective leaders who cannot build trust with their teams. Most people leave their manager, not their company. These same leaders who lose employees tend to have the lowest engagement scores and highest number of employee complaints. Yet HR remains stuck in this "How do I prove it?" bind, failing to establish influence and therefore power. This session provides established, reputable data every HR professional should not only learn but also take back to their C-suites in order to implement real manager-led engagement and retention solutions that work.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn about detailed studies and resulting data that reinforce the primary roles leaders play in engagement and retention.
  • Learn to deliver this data to C-suite teams, along with specific solutions to build leaders' skills.
  • Learn to incorporate this data into leadership development programs so leaders understand both their impact and the right behaviors to build trust ... and therefore engagement and retention.
