Your company. Your people. Your imperative. This workshop is designed to guide CEOs through the following key topics:

Topic No. 1: Recruitment

  • Define the criteria by which to judge the ideal candidate.
  • Attract and screen candidates.
  • Conduct effective interviews to find the best fit for your team.

Topic No. 2: Retention

  • Understand why creating a sense of purpose, alignment and interpersonal risk-taking drives performance and engagement.
  • See why a one-size-fits-all mentality will likely fail in your retention efforts.
  • Explore examples of how an individual’s unique perceptions and motivations are key to retaining top talent.
