Creating a Leadership Brand That Engages and Retains Employees
Sponsored by Oscar Montano, Inc.

You’ve probably heard the saying “people don’t quit their jobs, they quit their bosses.” That’s right, 65% of Americans say they would choose a better boss over a pay raise*. Wow. This tells us there’s an epidemic in leadership today – leaders are not motivating or inspiring employees and as a result they are leaving and looking for a culture that will engage them. The good news is this is all within your control – it’s just a matter of becoming aware and then becoming intentional about your leadership brand experience. 

It starts with defining what you want to be known for and applying some simple keys such as consistency, communication and connection. In this interactive session we’ll discuss what drives a positive leadership experience while taking a look at how you can create your own brand experience. Whether you’re leading a company or a department this session will leave you with tools and strategies to not just engage your employees but also retain them.
