Retaining & Developing Talent: Optimizing Your Workforce for Bottom Line Growth

Speaker:  Jim Harshaw Jr

Register by Thursday, May 9

Every HR manager wants to improve performance so that it impacts bottom line growth. But how do you do it? How do you engage your workforce so that team members are laser-focused? So that they are not only clear on their objectives but motivated to do the work necessary to achieve the desired outcomes? So that they go from a "got to" to "get to" mindset? That is, they get to go to work rather than they've got to go to work.

The secret lies in the framework from which high-performers operate. Whether elite athletes, successful entrepreneurs, or top business leaders, they all have a clear understanding of how to get the right things done. In an increasingly distracted world, focus is increasingly valuable.
First, high-performers know what's most important. They have clearly defined principles and values that drive both small and big decisions. This clarity provides confidence and decisiveness as well as consistency.

Second, they have clear objectives that align with their principles and values. When goals are aligned with principles and values then failure, obstacles and setbacks are irrelevant. What you value doesn't change based on how easy or hard a task is. This is why people like military special operators, elite athletes and even young mothers can consistently do hard things while others fail to execute on the smallest tasks with persistence and diligence.

Third, they create an environment- both internal and external- that facilitates success. That is, they spend time with people who have a success mindset. They consume media- books, audios, video- that support their goals. Their self-talk reinforces their mindset to succeed.

And, finally, they have systems in place that ensure follow through. That is, they welcome accountability and create processes that enable successful outcomes.
In this session, Jim will share how human resource professionals can recreate this high-performance framework for their workforce so that businesses can experience bottom line growth.
