Leadership: Happy Works, How to Create an Extraordinary Workplace Culture

In this highly interactive and energized presentation, Kris Boesch weaves valuable content, enlightening stories and tangible tools to improve your workplace culture. 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.” Boesch will share how to create meaningful collaboration, camaraderie and connection amongst your team. Camaraderie creates a strong sense of belonging while dissipating divisions and emphasizing community. You’ll learn how to instill shared identity, interdependency awareness as well as kind, candid and constructive communication. Participants will be able to take her doable best practices and implement them within their teams to see immediate results.
