Many leaders and managers are stressed at work like never before. Too much to do, too little time, and too many distractions. But not everyone is struggling… some have figured out how to create a better place to work where employees are happier, more motivated, and more productive. One where employees are highly engaged and customers have a more consistent experience, leading to more profitable business results.
More than 65% of Gregg Lederman’s clients are on a “best place to work” list. In addition, his clients witness nearly three times the amount of employee engagement than their competitors. This is not by chance. It is by design. There is a recipe for this success that is simple and easy to put into practice. The recipe? Give people what they CRAVE!
Eighty-plus years of research has proven that humans CRAVE three things that enable them to become more motivated:
- Respect: Help me feel respected for the work I do.
- Purpose: Show me how what I do has purpose, makes a difference, and is relevant to the organization.
- Relationship: Help me build stronger connections with people, especially my immediate manager/supervisor.
The audience is introduced to the power of strategically recognizing employees as a way to reduce stress and fuel the work environment with what employees CRAVE. Using real-life case studies with financial impact and highlighting compelling realities managers can relate to, audiences will walk away with a few leadership techniques and feel inspired to put them into practice.
Lederman says, “We, as humans, love recognition, but we struggle to give enough of it. Whether we want to admit it or not, recognition plays a huge role in our everyday work lives—in our happiness, well-being, and working relationships. Learning to strategically recognize employees is the most effective and efficient way to give people what they CRAVE. Doing so leads to accelerated improvements in employee engagement and the work culture, which together inspire a more consistent customer experience.”
In this highly interactive keynote, supervisors, managers, and executives commit to the 10 Minutes By Friday™ habit for giving people more of what they CRAVE! In return, they become better managers and leaders who are able to achieve the business results that matter most to their team, department, and/or organization.
