The Strategic Imperative for Employee Engagement
Michael Neill, president, Michael Neill and Associates

The Gallup Group has been surveying employee engagement at work since the 90’s. The results have not changed dramatically in almost 20 years:

  • More than half of employees say they are not engaged in their work.  
  • In addition to those who say they are not engaged, about 25% say they are “actively disengaged,” meaning they look for ways to reduce their productivity.
  • There is very little difference in the percentages in those who say they are disengaged among those in their 20’s, 30’s, 40’s and 50’s.

The Gallup Group further estimates that actively disengaged employees cost the U.S. economy approximately $350 billion dollars per year in lost revenue, rising alarming questions:

  • How can we create an organizational brand if more than 50% of our employees are disengaged?
  • How can we create an organization that quickly and effectively avoids and resolves mistakes?
  • What are the implications on profitability if one engaged employee can do more work, more effectively, than 2 disengaged employees?

Join Neill and learn more about how you can improve employee engagement, and therefore improve productivity and revenue, simply by changing the way your organization leads and manages people.

Strategic Implications of Executive Succession Planning
Deedee Myers,  MSC, MA, PCC, PhD, Founder and CEO, DDJ Myers, Ltd.

Strategic succession planning is all about having the right people, in the right place, at the right time. It is the process of intentionally developing talent to meet the needs of the organization, both now and in the future, as the needs relate to the strategic plan.

In this session, you’ll learn how an organization’s succession plan aligns leadership continuity at the board level and for executive, management and staff, to reach the highest level of performance.

Join Myers and learn the answers to these questions:

  • When do we start succession planning?
  • How do we manage expectations of potential internal candidates?
  • What is the role of the CEO in developing a CEO successor?
  • What is the responsibility of potential internal candidates for ongoing development?
  • When do we need an external executive coach, and how is that investment justified?
