Social Super Glue: How to Create Camaraderie in Your Workplace

Kris Boesch, CEO and Founder of Choose People


In this highly interactive and energized presentation, Kris Boesch weaves valuable content, enlightening stories and tangible tools to improve your organization’s culture. Boesch who approaches workplace culture as the most paramount asset to a company’s financial success, empowers participants with specific tangible no-cost ways to create an extraordinary workplace culture – strategically shifting HR from a tactical transactional cost center to a transformational profit center. Whereas other programs miss the mark by only talking about employee “satisfaction” or “engagement,” Boesch takes workplace culture to a whole new level well beyond compensation, basic HR practices and “perks.” She’ll share the “social super glue” that’s critical to creating an extraordinary workplace culture and she’ll share how to leverage this “glue” to address common culture challenges such as gossip, entitlement and apathy. This results in culture where perseverance through tough times, inspiration to go the extra mile and retention of top talent is the norm, not the exception.

Key takeaways include:

  • The Bottom-Line Business Case for Happy Employees
  • The Unexpected Key Ingredient to Your Culture’s Secret Sauce
  • The 3 Critical Paradigm Shifts
  • 7 Savvy Strategies to Strengthen Your Team

HOLY COW!® How to Create an Amazing Workplace that Steers Passion, Performance & Prosperity

Tracy Butz, Workplace Culture Expert, Best-Selling Author, Keynote Speaker and founder of Think Impact Solutions

Do employees bring passion, commitment, and skills to work every day? Do your leaders inspire teams to collaborate better and perform higher? Discover how to create an amazing culture—where people feel empowered to do their best work, trust and respect their leaders, and willingly collaborate and perform in highly effective ways. Attract the best talent and select the right individuals to inspire and lead productive teams. Alter workplace behaviors and performance—where negative conflict is controlled, accountability grows, and results are achieved. Inspire change in dysfunctional, under-performing silos to become motivated, accountable, and committed teams. Start influencing a transformation of your workplace culture to win in the workplace and prosper in the marketplace.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Attract the best talent using attributes they target, select the right individuals to inspire and lead teams, and invest in growth experiences that enhance ability in unparalleled ways.
  • Foster engagement and productivity by preventing and controlling negative conflict while cultivating accountability by removing excuses, committing to aligned goals, and achieving results.
  • Appreciate and celebrate behaviors you desire and positively influence attitudes and collaboration—transforming your culture into one with higher morale, decreased stress, lower turnover, enhanced communication, deeper commitment and a stronger bottom line.

 

Sessions

ASE's Annual HR Conference will consist of two Keynote sessions and three sets of breakout sessions.  Attendees can attend one session in each set of breakouts.

BK-7: Courageously Lead and Influence Change
Tracy Butz, Workplace Culture Expert, Best-Selling Author, Keynote Speaker, and founder of Think Impact Solutions

Weaken Resistance. Protect Productivity. Drive Positive Outcomes. Leading change efforts in the workplace can be daunting and difficult! And even with the best intentions, 70% of organizational change initiatives fail. Worse yet, the need to lead change is growing, but the ability to do it is shrinking. Instead of your next change effort exerting a heavy toll – both human and economic – discover how to influence a positive transformation in your organization. Apply an intentional approach with results-focused strategies to lead change toward a positive future, rather than merely avoiding a negative one.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Prepare for common reactions, set the right expectations and effectively manage the predictable dynamics of change.
  • Maintain focus and engagement despite distractions while avoiding mistakes that derail communication, accountability and productivity.
  • Determine the financial impact of your change using a proven formula and accelerate the change process to decrease the negative impact.
  • Model the right behaviors to help preserve trust, commitment, morale and teamwork—inspiring your team to successfully navigate through unstable times.
  • Direct energy away from resistance and uncertainty, protect productivity and performance, and achieve positive outcomes for you and your organization.
